We’re publishing 90 Alumni stories representing our 90 years and we'd love to hear from YOU
We have an exciting couple of years ahead. 2020 is the 90th anniversary of the signing of the founding document for The Dominions Students' Hall Trust which is Goodenough College today. Following this, 2021 will then mark the 70th anniversary of the launch of the Fundraising Campaign to build William Goodenough House.
As you’re probably already aware, we're including our two anniversaries in one celebratory period which we're calling the College’s Commemorative Biennium. It will take place across two academic years to include two cohorts of new Members and will begin on Founders Day, Thursday 3 October 2019 and conclude on Founder’s Day 2021.
As part of the celebration, we're collating 90 stories from our Alumni.
If you'd like to join in the celebrations, we'd love to hear about what mattered to you most during your time at Goodenough or what impact the College has had on your life post-Member days.
It is 50 years since Russell and I lived at ‘Willie G’ and I have the warmest memories of some of the happiest years of my life. We came from Melbourne, Australia for Russell to undertake his PhD at LSE. We were newly married and Russell was absorbed and distracted in his studies.
I am currently associated with a private sector development consultancy as an Infrastructure and Management Associate and I completed my Masters in Structural Engineering and Business Management from Imperial College London while staying in William Goodenough House in 2016-2017.
In the very first of our 90 Alumni stories for the College's Commemorative Biennium, we interviewed Stuart Shilson about his personal Goodenough College experience. Stuart is a Goodenough College Alumnus and Fellow, Director and Strategist at McKinsey and has recently been appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant of Greater London.
