At Stephenson, we try to maintain strong links between graduates and the college through our Alumni Association. We recognise how important it is to keep in touch with our former students as this not only fills us with a sense of pride at their vast accomplishments and can be reap benefits for our current undergraduates and postgraduates.
We are always looking for alumni to act as a college mentors for incoming students to support them academically and pastorally as they begin their life at StephensonCollege, and regularly invite our former students to speak to current students about life after university, their careers and to provide on-going support. We also actively encourage local alumni to join Stephenson SCR, which involves termly dinners, meetings with mentees and playing a pivotal role in college life.
The London After Hours Reunion
In addition to organising local alumni events, we appreciate many of our Alum head down to London to start their post-University life. Therefore, it has become a Stevo tradition to organise an alumni event in London so we can keep in contact with as many of you as possible. If you aren’t able to come back to Stevo, we will bring Stevo to you!
The 2017 After Hours Reunion was held on the Friday 17th March. Celebrating our heritage previous Stevo Rangers and current college staff headed to the beautiful Parcel Yard, a train themed pub (in keeping with the railway pioneer after whom we are named) . We exclusively booked The Station Master’s Office, an impressive room within the venue which showcases original features throughout.
The event was free to attend, and all of our alumni were invited to reunite with friends old and new over canapes and drinks.
It really was wonderful to reconnect with Stevo Rangers who, in such a short time since graduating, have been travelling all over the world for their careers.
