Activity feed: Below the share box you can find other general exciting news, like who has recently joined the alumni network or if a new story has been published. These can be filtered if you’re looking for specific updates.
Suggested connections: You will see some profiles pop up in this box – these are people from the alumni network who are recommended for you to get in touch with. Have a look at everyone’s profile and start some conversations!
New members: You can find members who have joined the network recently here.

Absolutely key to making new connections. Here you can search for individuals who have joined the alumni database. You can search by name, city, country or university for people who are relevant to you. Underneath the search bar, there is also a list of people you may know – great for reconnecting with old classmates!
Full of fascinating stories starting all the way back from 1910’s alumni – the search bar helps to navigate the many categories of stories, including lockdown specials and recent school news. Also has a host of interesting interviews to peruse!
Plenty of professionally taken photos can be found here from all sorts of events, both from school and alumni events. There’s also a search bar so photos can be filtered through with key words.
