Department of Zoology Alumni Day, 15 September 2018

We hope as many former members of the department, staff and students, can join us for the day on 15th September 2018.  

There are several events going on which we hope you will find interesting and enjoyable.  We have tried to get a mix of things to either jog your memory of happy days spent here as well as to tell you of some of the exciting things we are currently doing. 

Full programme available here (Draft)

You do not need to sign up for all the events but so that you can get the best out of some of the smaller events we would like to limit the numbers to 15 per group.  We would also like to know the numbers for afternoon tea.
