Alumni Office Launches Instagram Feed
On Thursday 8 December 2016, the Campaigns and Supporter Engagement Office launched a new Instagram feed to capture and coincide with the winter graduations of over 500 beaming postgraduate students. Graduation is always a special event for many people, an event which is fondly remembered for decades to come.
So much of the graduation season's charm is found in its visual spectacle: a sea of caps and gowns, constantly navigating the picturesque and historic London Road campus. The campus has been the location of graduations since the University received its charter on Wednesday 17 March 1926; the graduation ceremony cements our current students into this long and proud tradition. We found that Instagram's filters perfectly complemented the nostalgic and traditional feel of the ceremony.
Since graduation, we have been populating our Instagram feed with a variety of content. From regular images of the University from the archives and ephemera from the University's history to alumni profiles, behind the scenes snapshots of the University today and images from our numerous alumni events, there is something for everyone on our feed.
If you have any images, old and new, which you would like us to share on our Instagram feed, please send us direct message on Instagram, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tag us as well!
