Archive of Alumni Magazines
Our alumni magazine, formerly known as Graduates' Review, has been renamed Gryphon. The University has a long association with the mythical gryphon, which appeared in the coat of arms of our original benefactor, Thomas Fielding Johnson. A golden demi-gryphon features in our heraldic crest (printed on our degree certificates), and the Team Leicester branding for our sports clubs also features a demi-gryphon holding a book.
Gryphon is the number one way to stay connected with news from the University and the successes of our alumni.
