Last week the Lampeter Campus saw its first Formal Hall for over 40 years. The event served as the closing episode of a series of workshops that were held on our campus and run by the alumni. Apart from providing current students, staff and alumni with an opportunity to enjoy themselves, it was also a great opportunity to network.
Here is what Rufus Malim, a first-year Anthropology student at UWTSD Lampeter that took the initiative of bringing back this tradition, had to say about the event:
On Wednesday 15th March 2017, we held our first formal hall at Lampeter University in the Old Hall for over forty years involving students, staff and Alumni. It was a huge success; the hall was illuminated with flowers, candles and calm music, the food that was laid on for us by the 1822 catering service was delicious and inventive. The Alumni, staff and students all had a fantastic time speaking to one another and eating together and later dancing together. The ballroom dancing was great fun filled with laughter and smiles as some of us had to learn on the spot to some very fast music and old classics. Everyone turned out looking splendid. We will host many more like it in the future.
