Events and reunions

Taking part

The Alumni Office helps to organise alumni events all over the world. We also hope to encourage and support the organisation of freestanding events and reunions by independent groups of alumni.

Past events

Singapore Reunion

 Singapore - October 2015

Around 100 alumni attended this event hosted by the Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Gerry McCormac and the University Secretary Ms Eileen Schofield on Friday 16th October in the Hilton Hotel.  The evening provided an opportunity for our alumni to hear updates from Stirling, network, catch up with friends and it gave our new graduates an opportunity to hear about the experiences of some of our well established, high profile alumni based in Singapore. Professor Gerry McCormac just the day before, conferred degrees upon more than 50 graduates of the highly popular BA Hons in Retail Marketing.

Maisie's Reunion

University of Stirling - August 2015

"Our Maisie’s Reunion turned out to be anything but A Trip Down Amnesia Lane, with all the old friends who had made the effort to attend, often from far flung places. It was hard to believe it was 25+ years since we last met for musical evenings under the affectionate eye of the Blonde Bombshell herself. Many of the old SUSA Management were there, as well as the musicians and singers from the old days, most of whom sounded better than ever. Of course, the real star turn was the beautiful university campus, bathed for once in glorious sunshine. We felt blessed to be part of the occasion, and to re-live what Stirling life meant for us all. So much so, in fact, that we are already discussing when we can do it again. Watch this space!"

Vive la France

Paris - January 2014

The French reunion was again an opportunity to meet new faces. We aim to create a French network for Stirling’s alumni because higher education networks in France are always influential so we need to make our net 'work' as well. Business cards were exchanged and we hope all present will benefit from this extra opportunity to step back in time whilst looking towards the future. The Thistle pub is always an enjoyable experience and a little moment where you can imagine yourself back in Scotland. Email Amanda Bouin on to keep in touch.
