Geographers return to Leicester, five decades on

Class of ’61 reunion brings back memories.

A few weeks ago a group of Geography alumni gathered at the University for a fiftieth anniversary reunion. The seventeen former students all began their degrees in 1961, just four years after the University of Leicester was founded.

The group were given a tour of our current Department of Geography in the Bennett Building and also visited the location of the 1960s Geography Department in the Fielding Johnson Building South Wing – which is now, appropriately enough, our Alumni Office.

You can read a report on the day and see more photographs on the Alumni and Development website.
