In April 2018, the University of Kent hosted its second ever alumni reunion weekend in LA. It was preceded by a pub night in San Francisco. See all the photos from the weekend on Flickr.
Events included a panel discussion on the future of a global education at the New West Charter School. This was followed by an alumni and friends pub night in Santa Monica. We also visited a couple of our students who were on exchange at UCLA.
On the Saturday, alumni gathered for a morning hike in the Malibu Mountains before meeting at the SLS Beverly Hills for the main event: Gavin Esler In Conversation with David Horsey. This was followed by a drinks reception at which the 2018 North America Innovation in Academia Awards were presented. The evening concluded with a special UKA-Fulbright Gala Dinner.
On the Sunday, alumni relaxed at the King’s Harbor Yacht Club, or attended a tour of the Broad art gallery.
Thank you to everyone who helped organise or lead events, and who everyone joined us for a fantastic weekend of fun, catching up and networking!
