The group enjoying their 40th reunion weekend

Alumni back on campus for 40th reunion

A group of alumni recently came back to our Streatham Campus to celebrate their 40th reunion.

The group, who all graduated in 1978 in different subjects, spent the weekend exploring campus and catching up. Whilst at Exeter, they lived in several different halls including, Moberley (Duryard), Haldon and Brendon (Birks) before moving out into a shared house.

Annie Routley (Music, 1978) commented on the reunion: “We went back to see our old house in Old Tiv Road, which brought back lots of memories.  I was particularly chuffed to find that the cinema where we all queued excitedly for Star Wars in 1977 is still there and still showing films!  A piece of history indeed.”

At the reunion were:

Annie Routley- Music, 1978

Mike Turner- Archaeology & Geography, 1978

Nick Ladd- Music, 1978

Jane Eldred (nee Hitch)- Music, 1978

Naomi Morris- Music, 1978

Roger Morris- Chemistry, 1978

Paul Durgan- Geography, 1978

They have all stayed in touch over the years, and came back to celebrate their 25th reunion in 2003.
