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).
Gary attended a concert (Symphonova - 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!
