Over the past academic year, a wide range of alumni events were held around the world.
City Magazine 2015
Welcome from David Street, Director of Development & Alumni Relations
I would like to extend a warm welcome to the 2015 edition of City Magazine and especially to our 6,450 new readers who graduated during the last year. You are joining an alumni network with over 130,000 members, the ages of whom range from 21 to 101, representing a rich heritage of former students who studied at City or one of its former affiliated institutions.
With a view to providing outstanding facilities for our students, further significant developments to our estate have been introduced. Students now benefit from state-of-the-art underground lecture theatres and an impressive new social space, CityBar. The jewel in the crown though has to be CitySport, our new sports centre on Goswell Road, constructed on the site of the old Saddlers Sports Centre. This is the largest student sports facility in central London and was opened in March by Olympic gold medal winning cyclist Dani King. Our students now have facilities
of which we are proud.
Elsewhere, over 1,000 alumni and friends supported the University financially by donating to the Annual Fund and funding named scholarships, thus helping to improve the lives of current and future students. If you were one of our donors then please accept our thanks.
I hope that this edition of City Magazine gives you a flavour of why City is such an exciting place to be at the moment. If you haven’t been back for some time, why not contact us and arrange a visit? I am sure you will be impressed.
