Alumni celebrations across ‘The Pond’ – May 2007

Over 80 alumni gathered in the grand surroundings of the Hyatt Roof Salon for a reception and buffet in Toronto. Co-host and guest speaker Dr Maureen McTeer (MA 2003) welcomed her fellow alumni to the event, which was the first of its kind in Canada. We look forward to building stronger Canadian links in the future.

A group of US alumni enjoyed views of the Golden Gate Bridge as they joined University representatives in San Francisco. Hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bob Boucher, and Nobel Laureate Dr Richard Roberts (BSc 1965, PhD 1968, DSc 1994), the event brought together alumni from across California and as far a field as Kansas, Texas and Massachusetts.

The evening was a celebration of Sheffield’s ongoing links with the USA and the success of the University of Sheffield in America fundraising campaign, which has raised over $130,000 so far for scholarships and campus developments.
