2007 Summer Party at Island E-mail

The Hellenic branch of the University of Strathclyde’s Alumni Association has held its first ever event.

More than 250 people gathered for the reunion party, organized by Strathclyde’s Greek partner, International Management Studies (IMS), which took place on 5th July at Island bar in Varkiza.


The event was attended by former students of Strathclyde, some of whom had graduated in Scotland as early as 1965, and some who have graduated in Greece during the more than 10 years that Strathclyde has had a presence in this country.  Also enjoying the party were current students, professors and friends of the University.

Guest of honour was Professor George Avlonitis, head of Athens University’s marketing department and recently-elected President of the European Marketing Association.  As a graduate of Strathclyde University, Professor Avlonitis will become an honorary member of the Alumni Association.

The magical setting of Island, with its view over the bay of Varkiza, provided the opportunity for former students, both from Greece and Scotland, to get back in touch with classmates - sometimes after many years – and for lost friendships to be re-kindled.  A professional photographer was on hand to capture it all.

The aim of the Association is to provide networking opportunities aimed at strengthening connections and forging professional and social bonds for those with shared educational and professional experience.  More events are planned in the near future and the Association’s first General Assembly and elections will take place during October.

IMS represents the Business School of the University of Strathclyde in Greece and provides post-graduate courses on a part-time basis, giving Greek professionals the opportunity to gain internationally recognized Strathclyde degrees whilst continuing to live and work in their own country.

Many thanks to all the staff of IMS who administered this event so efficiently, the provisional Association’s committee (George Georgopoulos, Michael Stamboulides and John Kostaras), and mostly Panayiotis Milopoulos (IMS Graduate in MSc Finance) who organized the whole evening with the bar’s management and arranged DIAGEO’s drinks sponsorship.
