We’ve a series of clips this week from Meet the Graduates 2014. In the first piece you can find out where some of our alumni are now. Head ofLincoln School of Media,Sarah Barrow, officially introduced MtG 2014. It was a special occasion because it was one of the School’s event to mark 20 years of media at the University of Lincoln.
