"Probably his greatest talent was the ability to fit over a hundred thirsty students and visitors into his little bar-room designed for 25-30. A surprising number of soon-to-be-teachers willingly gave up their weekends to support the University teams and you could find them in Albert’s Bar."
"At Bradford that year there were 10 male students for every woman – well, that’s how we liked to think about it in the swinging 1960s! – but I married the first 17-year-old student I danced with at the first student Saturday night dance."
"My wife, Liz, studied Modern Languages and we first met at our 1965 Freshers' Ball. We were entertained by Duke Ellington on his 1967 tour, danced to Pink Floyd, and saw John Cleese with Michael Palin perform the dead parrot sketch from 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' - all in the University's Great Hall."
1970s and 1980s
I arrived in Bradford in September 1973 for Freshers’ Week before embarking on a pharmacy degree. Washing machines were not, in those days considered essential and our lecture-free Wednesday afternoons were usually spent at the launderette on Great Horton Road rather than the suggested sporting activities.
"The ever welcoming International students' office of the University and its excellent chief of operation Mrs Sue Baker made a lasting impression from the very first day. Thus when it came to my daughter's higher education, Bradford was my first choice. Like many other alumni, the University of Bradford has been the seat of education for two generations in my family."
