Friends of Houghall Alumni Meeting

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Are you a former student or staff member at East Durham College's Houghall campus? If so, we'd like to invite you to join us as a Friend of Houghall!

East Durham College is excited to announce the launch of a new alumni initiative for former students and staff of its Houghall Campus in Durham.

‘Friends of Houghall’ is a brand new scheme which provides former students and staff with the opportunity to visit the college, get updates on developments at the campus and the chance to meet up with old college friends.

The scheme is being headed up by college governor and veterinary surgeon Jane Weeks and backed by Principal Suzanne Duncan.

Mrs Duncan said: “Houghall has a long and proud heritage; we know many of our former students and staff have a very strong bound with the college, especially those students that studied there when we offered student accommodation.

“We really want to get former Houghall students reengaged with the college - particularly those who are working in, or who have worked in, land based industries and could help the college in many valuable ways, be that through offering students work experience, work placements or coming back to Houghall to give specialist talks to our current students.”

There is no cost to join and members will get to attend an annual event. The first event is planned for Tuesday 23rd July 5.30pm-7pm, when a free buffet and drinks will be served, followed by a short presentation from the Principal and an optional tour of the site.

Anyone former Houghall students or staff, who are interested in joining, should email enquiries@eastdurham.ac.uk to register with Friends of Houghall.
