On Thursday evening mum and I attended a book launch for a book to commemorate the anniversary.
"Back to School" is a combination of a history of the college and a series of memories collected from students through the decades. It was a pleasure to hear mum's contribution read out during the launch.
It was interesting to hear how student life has changed over this period although student's aspirations are much the same. Since mum started her student life in 1949 both of her daughter's have experienced student and life and in more recent years two of her granddaughters have had/ are having probably quite a different experience in today's universities.
