Calling all 1950-70's Lincoln College Alumni 

We would like to invite you back to Lincoln on Friday 1- Sunday 3 February, 2013 for a Colombo Plan/NZ Aid Reunion. All 1950-70's Colombo Plan students, staff, fellow classmates and friends of Lincoln College, and more recent NZ Aid students are welcome. It will be a great opportunity to reconnect with old classmates and staff, and to hear what is happening at the Lincoln campus.

The Colombo Plan brought many students to study at Lincoln, however records of the time are sparse and not all are on the Alumni database, so we need your help! If you are a former Colombo Plan student, or you know of one, please contact Penny Curran, the Alumni Relations Officer.

The reunion programme includes informal dinners on the Friday and Saturday, and a 'Think Tank' workshop on  Saturday, for attendees and the University to share ideas. There will also be time to tour the campus, catch up with peers, and an optional bus tour of Christchurch and its surrounds. The reunion programme is outlined below:
