Valete Omnes

It was my graduation yesterday and it was one of the happiest days of my life. My family came to watch my two minutes of fame and my short-lived career on the stage.
I was very lucky to study at Wolverhampton University and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is the most student- friendly and nurturing university in the UK and has the best and most inspiring lecturers.
(I can say this with the benefit of having a previous degree in an unrelated subject form a red-brick Russell group institution where the lectures were boring and nobody gave a s*** about the students).
The learning experience at Wolverhampton was brilliant and the university deserves to be rewarded and acknowledged for the good work it does.
Positions on league tables and ‘prestigiousness’ do not necessarily mean ‘better’ in my opinion.

We shall definitely miss you. Stay in touch.

PS. This is being circulated round the university now: we don't often get praise, so you've made us all very happy.

Thanks Voley – I will miss you all too.
Many thanks to you and your colleagues for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and expertise and inspiring me with your enthusiasm and passion for literature.
It is au revoir, not goodbye as I am hoping to write about my experiences at my new university on my blog (but judging by the mammoth reading list of heavy going, serious literary fiction and a six hour round trip daily commute, I may not have much spare time)
