Van Mildert College

VMA Membership

The VMA is a core component of College life: membership of it offers the opportunity to play a part in the continuing development of the College. Members receive an annual newsletter, access to alumni news and information about other alumni events organised throughout the country and throughout the year. The annual Reunion Weekend provides the chance to revisit and stay in College, to refresh friendships and acquaintances and to enjoy a programme of events culminating in the annual dinner.
