What President Harry Newman has to say…

17 July 2013

Harry Newman is the Student Union’s President and is continuing his degree in civil engineering this coming academic year and will be graduating this time next year.

How does it feel being part of this years graduation?

I love it, it’s the best day of the year. It’s a refreshing, happy occasion in the University calendar.

Do you have any memories from graduation or your time at Cardiff University?

Where I sit on the stage I can see all the graduates as they come up to the vice-chancellor. I can see what they say to the vice-chancellor when they shake his hand, and its not always ‘thank you’. The old vice-chancellor used to talk about it, his favourite was ‘nice one vice’ or I heard today ‘cheers mate’ and a little pat on the shoulder. It’s all good fun!
