Each year, at the end of September, UEA alumni around the world get together to celebrate the University's anniversary on or around the 29th September. Events can be as formal or informal as you wish, and the alumni office is here to offer support and publicise your reunion.
If you're looking for inspiration, take a look at the videos and photos below from some of our 2016 events.
