Alumni Celebration 2020

We held our Alumni Celebration recently as we do every year, but with the challenges of Covid-19, this was an entirely online affair - which meant we reached further than we do usually! 

Jane Clarke on Zoom

It was wonderful to see so many people join us from across the globe; we had 13 different countries represented by the attendees across Saturday and Sunday. 

President Jane Clarke talked about the future of the College as well as welcoming back some familiar faces, and we saw the newly-refurbished Porters’ Lodge which has now been moved into and is up and running. You can read more about what Head Porter Mike thinks about it elsewhere on our website.

We also had music from Wolfson student and talented jazz pianist Jake Werth, as well as a tour of the College by Alumni Officer Rob Grayston, followed on the Sunday by Head Gardener Oscar Holgate sharing details about the College Gardens and answering attendees' queries about their own plants. 

Although we could not celebrate in-person, we were pleased to reach out and connect with so many of the Wolfson community, and are hopeful that next year we can enjoy the festivities with everyone on the College grounds.
