Alumni return after 30 years for emotional reunion

A group of returning graduates in the Students' Union bar

Four alumni from the University of Wolverhampton's Class of 1994 returned to the city recently for a trip down memory lane as part of a reunion weekend.

They were given a tour of City campus by the Alumni Association.

David Wedge, Deputy Head of the Alumni and Development team said: "It's always great to welcome graduates back to campus, especially after a long period of time.

"They had a great time, with a particular interest in visiting the Students' Union bar where they spent a lot of their time and had many fond memories.

"It's wonderful to see how our alumni progress in life, and always good to know that they never forget where their story started - right here in Wolverhampton."

Nicholas Roger Perham studied Psychology with Sociology, Balraj Sreenivasan
studied Psychology, Michael Skey studied Media with Geography and Stuart ‘Stu’ Carter studied English and Philosophy in 1994 - 30 years after graduating!

Stu said: "It's been almost 30 years since the four of us graduated from the University of Wolverhampton in 1994, and there have been a lot of changes - mostly for the better! 

"None of us were from the area, so coming to Dudley and Wolves to study was a proper adventure for four young lads, and all of us have very very fond memories of our time there. 

"We all lived in Whitmore Reans, mostly studied at the old Dudley campus, but socialised in the Union in Wolverhampton, back when well-known bands regularly played live, and we often danced the weekends away to some great DJs. 

"Coming back to see where our friendship began was quite an emotional experience for everyone - it certainly doesn't feel like 30 years ago! Thanks to David for taking the time to catch us up on the history and changes that Wolves has seen, and making us feel as welcome today as we did 30 years back!"
