Alumnae weekend

Every autumn, we look forward to welcoming back our alumnae to College for an exciting weekend. Our alumnae weekend coincides with the University's Alumni Festival.

Further events will take place for specific year groups over this weekend - year representatives will be in touch.

Friday 23 September

Older and wiser: how women over 50 are making their mark

This panel discussion with the three Heads of Houses from the College's for women (Professor Dame Carol Black - Principal of Newnham, Dame Barbara Stocking - President of Murray Edwards and Jackie Ashley - President of Lucy Cavendish) and alumnae will explore how women can, and are, taking advantage of the next phase of their lives. Women over 50 are often changing direction and making valuable contributions to society in ways they might never have anticipated when they were younger.
