Story supplied by LU Press Office
Over 90 alumni, ex staff, current staff and new students came together on October 18 to celebrate the re-opening of the Chemistry Department at Lancaster University.
Professor Peter Fielden, Head of Chemistry, took guests on a guided tour of the laboratory and new facilities, whilst former Lancaster Chemistry Professor John Ebdon and alumni Bob Rainford and Dr Tony Whitfield shared recollections of times in the old department.
Graduates travelled from as far as Canada and Egypt to be involved in the reunion and many brought along their treasured photos of university life and, in one case, the original exam papers from 1969. Freshers mingled with graduates who took the opportunity to share their experiences of how to use the subject to pursue a stimulating future
