Bonds Across Generations

This month we are delighted to be welcoming our new intake of fresh faced students to the Joseph Black Building!

For generations, students in the School have known each other???s support both in the laboratory and social environment.  We are incredibly proud that our School is characterised by this strong cross-generational community and this year wondered if we could find a way to welcome and connect our new students with previous generations.
