Welcome from the President

Starting a degree course in Cambridge is, for everyone, an exciting and daunting time. I urge you to make the most of all that Cambridge and Wolfson offer – not just in your intellectual and educational endeavours, but to embrace the opportunities to expand your cultural, social and sporting life.

Some of you will have a mere nine months here, some of you will have much longer.  Be warned, time will fly.  Everyone at Wolfson is ready and willing to support you, to help you reach your goals- just ask. But the onus is also on you. Start as you mean to go on, join in with your community, play your part.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Best wishes

Jane Clarke
