My best Lancaster memory

Ravindra: Among the many wonderful memories that I have of my time at Lancaster, there are two that especially stand out. The first one I almost froze my fingers when I was out on a chilly January night, it took me half hour to bring fingers back to normal.  It happened on a sub zero temperature night.  The second was when I went for a walk and was amazed by the walking routes by the side of farms on the outskirts of Lancaster.

Mohit: I think the space provided will not do justice to list all the amazing memories that I have of Lancaster. I met my wife there, so it will always be special to me. Other memories include soaking up the sun on the steps of Alex square with friends or bar-hopping on campus. Another memorable year was the one when I worked as the LUSU marketing representative.

Sri: Through four years of the red rose days, my Lancaster experience was never been short of eventful experiences. One of the best times I had was when I organised the Lancaster University world cup tournament with a gruelling work period and a small team of four to handle 16 societies and create the most engaging international event. I learned a lot about negotiation, or as a Lancaster student might say ‘Truth lies open to all’. 

What Lancaster means to me

Ravindra: I am proud to be a Lancaster Graduate where quality means a lot in education. I had wonderful teachers, and enjoyed studying in such a beautiful part of England. I look forward to going back to visit in the future.

Mohit: It was one of the best phases of my life. I learnt a lot during my years at Lancaster. Being an international student, mingling with a multi-cultural community at university was a big highlight.

Sri: I came to Lancaster thinking I would learn about the world; instead I found a way to express myself and gain exposure to different cultures through a student society system.  It is essential to find the right fit of people to work and learn with and fortunately Lancaster gave me all that and more.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

Ravindra: I have been an active in Alumni, attending most of the events.  I am also an active alumni of IIT Roorkee where I did my Electrical Engineering.  IIT Alumni is like my family and I want it to be part of this volunteering effort for Lancaster too.  I was spell bound when my IIT Roorkee alumni who was Chairman of Huge Indian Railways came out of his room to meet me, when I sent a slip saying I am a fellow alumni and just want to say hello to him.  We will some-day reach that goal in Lancaster alumni too. 

Mohit: I feel that alumni networks are a very important aspect of professional life. I am still in touch with a lot of alumni in India and feel that I can contribute towards building that network in Delhi NCR.

Sri: I represented the Indian society, the Asian society, the Management Science society and the United Nations Society through most of my time at University. I really could never say goodbye to Lancaster and I feel I can still contribute to sharing the Lancaster experience which I had through my years there.
