Alumni, faculty and staff of the Bader International Study Centre (BISC) at Herstmonceux Castle gathered recently for a weekend-long reunion in celebration of the centre’s 20th anniversary.
“The reunion weekend was everything I had hoped it would be,” says Laura Herdman (Artsci’11) who spent the spring term of her second year at the castle. “It was wonderful to reconnect with old classmates and professors, and there was something special about meeting new people and knowing that we were all connected by the passion we share for the castle.”
The reunion began with a warm welcome by Alan Harrison, Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) and Bruce Stanley, BISC Executive Director. In addition to reconnecting with fellow alumni and making new friendships, the sun-filled weekend was packed with events both at the castle and in the surrounding countryside.
