Deck the Halls – Cardiff alumni send festive messages to first years

8 December 2021

Cardiff’s alumni community have reached out to first year students in halls to send them seasonal messages of support and show them that Cardiff is a relationship for life.

Alumni from around the globe have taken part, sharing their words of wisdom, well-wishes, and fond memories of Cardiff.

The messages were popped into cards, which were then hand-delivered to nearly 900 flats in university halls, by the festive elves of the Residence Life team. Here are some of the wonderful messages that were shared.

Theodora Ackers, a first-year languages student, and her flatmates were so pleased to receive their card, they wanted to send their thanks to the alumna who’d sent it.

If you received a card and would like to thank the alum, tweet your message to @Cardiffalumni with #DeckTheHalls or email
