Remember your University in style

The sale of signed copies of the Joe Scarborough "Our University" commemorative print, for the University's Centenary celebrations, raised over £17,000. This has contributed towards 27 Centenary Scholarships, to be awarded to first year students.

The Development and Alumni Relations Office still has a number of gifts available to buy, including unsigned copies of the Joe Scarborough print. It's a great way for you to remember Sheffield, so why not see what's on offer?
