Kent memories

We asked you for your memories from your time here at the University, and you did not let us down!  Alumni share their stories about meeting friends and partners at Kent, and the impact these life-long relationships have had on them. From meetings in Mungos to connections in Hong Kong and beyond – would you like to add your own?

You said, we did.

With thanks to everyone who took part in last year’s alumni survey, we’re delighted to share some of the results, and the changes we are making because of your feedback.  You’ve told us what you like, and what we could do better – and we’ve listened.  We hope that you’re starting to see the results – but if there is anything else you’d like to see, please get in touch.

George Agate (Eliot 11) and John Whybrow (Eliot 11)

Two Kent alumni George Agate, (Eliot 11) and John Whybrow (Eliot 11) met at the University of Kent and sprouted an epic plan over a pint of beer.  It started as a London to Paris bike ride, and then morphed into a world challenge.  They spent two years planning the route in accordance with Guinness World Record criteria, sourcing sponsors, researching and training… fund out more about their epic journey inside…
