Meeting Minds 2024

Friday 20 September 2024 to Sunday 22 September 2024

Flagship alumni event celebrating the breadth of teaching and research taking place at the university. Whether you come for the stimulating panel discussions, the tours of hidden treasures or simply a chance to reconnect with fellow alumni, there is something on offer for everyone.

The weekend will allow you the opportunity to reconnect with your fellow alumni, and reminisce about your Templeton College experience. As part of the celebrations we are planning a small gallery of old Templeton photos in the marquee, so please send us copies of any pictures you have to so we can share your memories.
