The breadth and depth of interests of our colleagues at RGU never cease to amaze us.  Whether it’s music tastes from the 70s (Jefferson Airplane – hence the White Rabbit), their outside interests (Japan, travel, stone circles) or their taste in food, there is usually something to entertain and surprise!
