I decided to visit my old university on its grand open day for the alumni, on Sat 14th July 2012. I studied Hotel & Catering Management 1981-85 (now called Hospitality and Tourism Management ). I was accompanied by my old chum Gary Byrne who, 1981-85, studied Language and International Studies (that department is also bound to have changed its name too by now). The new (to me anyway) Management building Prof. Graham Miller, Head of School of Hospitality and Tourism Management A lecture theatre The University Library Gary Byrne Gary attended a concert ( S ymphonova - a world first ) while I went to a reception put on by my department. I was hoping to see lots of old friends but it turned out that I was the only one there from my year! Anyway, it was good to go back. The place has grown almost beyond recognition. It appears that any green spaces that I remember have now been built on!
