UL Alumni welcomed close to 400 graduates back to the campus for Class Reunions kindly supported by Bank of Ireland. Returning graduates enjoyed walking tours of the campus in the sunshine, followed by a barbeque and entertainment in The Stables which included a late-night party with the legendary DJ Ber Angley. Also, some of our earliest graduates were welcomed to a Reception in Plassey House hosted by UL Provost and Deputy President Professor Shane Kilcommins and UL Alumni Executive Director Majella O’Connell. As always, graduates took the opportunity to reconnect and reminisce as they celebrated 50 years of UL!

Better late than never! UL Alumni was thrilled to support the UL Ceremonies Office in bringing the UL Classes of 2020 and 2021 back to the campus to finally celebrate their academic achievements. Having missed out on a traditional graduation, there were so many smiling faces at these Celebratory Gatherings held in April, as returning graduates donned caps and gowns for their special day. And the feedback afterwards confirmed just how much this opportunity meant to everyone there.
As part of Post-Grad Month in February 2022, UL Alumni was once again delighted to partner with the Postgraduate Student's Union for ‘PSU Alumni Connect’, an event focused on educational and career progression.
Current postgraduate students who attended were able to benefit from an impressive panel of alumni speakers with varied backgrounds and a wealth of experience and advice. Huge thanks to our speakers Lyndsey Hall, Chettanna Onaedo Nweze, Dr Paddy Finn, Dr Leonie Lynch, Karthik Vasisht Gajendra, Maria Ryan and Ishmael Kgaugelo Mothibi. The event was hosted by UL Alumni Executive Director, Majella O’Connell. “We are so grateful to our guest speakers… This event was a fabulous opportunity for everyone to learn from each other and it really emphasized the importance of alumni building their connections”.
