From one graduate to another…

Congratulations, you did it! Now go out into the world and be great!”

Jennifer, class of 2008

This summer we welcomed nearly 3,000 new graduates to our global community of alumni. Among their number were over 100 scholars, who have been supported in their time at Bath by generous donations from our alumni and friends.

We asked our donors to write good luck messages to pass on to our graduating scholars, and we were overwhelmed by what we received. Here are a selection of their wise words:

“Have a great life – enjoy everything that comes your way and stay in touch with all your old Uni friends!”

Simon, class of 1997

“Be proud of what you have achieved through years of hard work, and be proud that you have a lifetime link to one of the best universities.”

Sharon, class of 1990

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice. Only one person is responsible for your career direction, and that is you. Grab every development opportunity that can help you progress.”

John, class of 1976

“Live a happy life!”

Jeffrey, class of 2014

Thank you to everyone who sent in their well wishes and words of wisdom, and congratulations to all our new graduates. Welcome to the alumni community!
