My best Lancaster memory

Amy: Graduation parties, film club, hiking club and feeding the ducks!

Ioannis: My best Lancaster memory was the whole year. I met unique people which helped me to learn to be myself, more passionate, creative, hard-working and live every moment whether I was studying in the library organising social events.

What Lancaster means to me

Amy: An epic three years, a lifelong interest in my degree subject, and being the first in my family to gain a Bachelor's degree.

Ioannis: Lancaster was my personal tipping point. It means inspiration, creativity and not to stop believing in my capabilities both professionally and personally.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

Amy: The rewarding thing about meeting other alumni is that we all have a common experience, no matter our age or background. I love meeting people, connecting alumni together and fostering the amazing network that supports Lancaster.

Ioannis: I have always organised events, social gatherings and memorable parties for my friends and acquaintances. I really like meeting and connecting people and I feel this is a great chance to keep, share and grow the Lancaster spirit.
