Students at Selwyn come from a wide range of backgrounds, and from across the UK and around the world. In a series organised by the students themselves, they talk here about their experience of the college and of Cambridge. Their descriptions were correct at the time of the date shown in each profile, though all of them have done more since then; and we will add further profiles as new students join us.
We’re thrilled that Selwyn postgraduate student Chloe Balhatchet has won the sustainability category in the vice-chancellor’s social impact awards. The citation says: ”The sustainability team and Cambridge Zero jointly nominated Chloe for the sustainability award because of her outstanding and numerous contributions to many engagement projects within the university.
Selwyn’s outreach work has been particularly intense in recent weeks, with a series of trips to Cambridge by schools and multiple occasions when our schools liaison officers have been visiting locations across the country. The aim is a simple one: to show that Selwyn and Cambridge are open to everyone with the right talent irrespective of geography or background or personal circumstances.
The college is pleased to announce that its flagship Ramsay Murray lecture will be given this year by Professor Lyndal Roper, Regius Professor of History at the University of Oxford. Her title is ‘Revolution: The German Peasants’ War 1524-6’, and she will argue that this was the greatest uprising in western Europe before the French Revolution.
