The University of Dundee Netball team posing their trophy in 1973
“I had a great time playing netball whilst studying for a PhD between 1971 and 1974. This photo was taken after we won the Scottish Universities tournament in 1973. The celebrations in the Union were amazing.”

Jennifer Gorski, Biophysics, Class of 1976

Peter Neal Paterson's Rugby Football gear
“This is my Dundee University Rugby Football Club tie and a DURFC Lions shirt (3rd XV) from around 1997/1998. My great-grandmother knitted me a doll for every team I played for based on the team photos. The doll is the colours worn during the time I played at DURFC 1992 – 1999. I still use my kit bag to this day too.”

Peter Neal Patterson, Modern History, Class of 1996 and English Law, Class of 1999

A climber climbing a mountain
“I was involved in the Rucksack Club from 1965 to 1971 being Secretary and then President in my last two years. This photo was taken on a Rucksack Club meet to Glen Coe and shows Spartan Slab on Beinn Trilleachan above Loch Etive, the easiest climb on the Etive Slab.”

Ronald Cameron, Modern History, Class of 1970, and Education, Class of 1971
