The college has welcomed its 2021 undergraduate freshers with a series of induction events – and then a group photograph taken in Old Court on the morning of Monday October 4th. The location moved from the Hall steps to outside Chapel because of the marquee which is still in place on the lawn, and older members will remember this as the traditional place for matriculation photos.
The college has welcomed hundreds of people to events at Selwyn in September. This included the graduation day on September 11th, but the greatest number of people were attending reunions. The year groups recognised ranged from 2010 and 2011 – for their 10th anniversary get-together – right back to 1960 and 1961, who were marking 60 years since they matriculated. We also hosted alumni who have pledged a legacy to Selwyn at the 1882 Society lunch.
Selwyn emeritus fellow Professor Sir Colin Humphreys has been awarded one of the premier medals by the Royal Society. They are the Society's most prestigious medals and recognise exceptional and outstanding science.
