    We are excited to announce the very first UCU Homecoming, which is scheduled to take place on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November 2017. Organising an annual Homecoming for UCU alumni has been on the wish lists of both the UCU management and alumni for some time, and we hope to start this new tradition this year. A provisional programme of the event is presented below. The programme may still be subject to change, but we promise it will be worthwhile making a trip back to UCU’s campus! We envision a mix of opportunities for alumni to re-connect and socialise, and inspiring mini lectures to get updates on what teachers and fellow alumni are currently working on.

    Friday 3 November: Buffet Dinner in (newly renovated!) Dining Hall ··· Party @ UCSA Bar
    Saturday 4 November: Breakfast/reunion sessions per department ··· Dean's Address ··· Two rounds of mini lectures by UCU teachers and/or alumni ··· Lunch ··· Optional: excursion

    We hope to see you, and your fellow alumni of UCU’s classes of 2002, 2007, and 2012 in November, and celebrate the 15th, 10th and 5th anniversary of your graduation together. You will receive an official invitation to the event later, but please mark your calendar and save the date!
