"It was great to not only facilitate the reunion of old classmates, but to enable newfound friendships."
Nadia Odunayo (2010, PPE)
Based primarily in London, the Young Univ events have a relaxed format, starting after the end of a working day. Advance notice of events is e-mailed to the group, as well as being posted to the Alumni events section of the College website. To make sure you're on the e-mail list, please contact Evan Wilson.
'The Young Univ committee is dedicated to creating a bespoke programme of events for Old Members under 35 which truly reflects their lifestyles and interests, and allows them to mix with fellow Univites in stimulating environments. In doing so, it is hoped that this vital younger demographic feels better valued and is encouraged to remain a part of College life by regularly attending events, sharing their professional expertise and/or making donations.'
Fabienne Morris, Young Univ Committee founding member (2004, Music)
The Young Univ launch event was held at the National Portrait Gallery in September 2014. View the photo gallery here.
'Young Univ' Profiles
A wider aim of this programme is to celebrate the achievements of Univ's young alumni. By doing this, we hope to increase awareness to current students of the wide range of opportunities that are available and achievable after leaving Univ.
