Inaugural Natural Sciences networking event
On Friday 18 March we held our first Natural Sciences alumni event, designed to have a dual purpose as a reunion but also a chance to network with current students and give them careers advice.
It was arranged in partnership with the NatSci student society, and ably organised by its Secretary, current NatSci student Elise Hobson.
Professor Geoff Nash, Programme Director of Natural Sciences, hosted a dynamic evening which saw over seventy current students participate in a ‘speed dating’ style event. This involved sixteen alumni stationing themselves at tables in the Innovation Centre café on Streatham campus, and the students dividing themselves into smaller groups and moving around each table on the sound of a buzzer! The room was alive with questions and comments as the students were eager to hear from alumni about their experience since graduation, and pick up some hints and tips for future careers. Afterwards, an array of pizza, beer and wine were served as both students and alumni networked freely and caught up with each other. The event was such a success that we hope to repeat it next year!
A huge thank you to our alumni volunteers: Nia Morris, Simon Lance, Chris Ellis, Liam Crossling, George Keyworth-Wright, Asha Bridgewater, Ben Grimsdell, Ayesha Tandon, Eleanor Osborne, Kathryn Hinton, Georgie Mansell, Alice Franklin and Simon Jones.
