Farewell - and welcome

Eric Monkman Canadian

It is always a pleasure to welcome students back to College for their Graduation. Eric Monkman was amongst the 35 Wolfson students who graduated on 29 April. As captain of Wolfson’s hugely successful team, who were runners-up in BBC2’s University Challenge  this year, Eric needs no introduction to current members of Wolfson!

Eric commented, “I made some great friends at Wolfson, both among the Students and among Fellows and Staff (I wanted to say I found the Porters especially friendly, but everyone was friendly; I just had the pleasure of dealing with the Porters more often). I enjoyed partaking in the activities available at Wolfson, including the University Challenge team and the Speakers’ Society. It was great to be able to visit Wolfson again for graduation.”

Degrees conferred are listed in the Reporter and the full list for 29 April can be found here.

We wish all Wolfson graduands every success in their future careers and hope you will wish to stay in touch with the College.
