The sun shone on the summer 2018 graduation ceremonies, as more than 6,000 new members were welcomed into the alumni community.

Geology graduate Charlotte Storey is pictured (middle) with her grandmother, Elaine Goodwin. Elaine graduated in 1960 with a Maths degree, which included a geology module. Elaine also met her husband on campus on their first day in the Guild. He studied Physics and they are pictured below on their graduation day, as well as their graduation ticket from 1960!
