    Fellow Emerita & Former Bursar


    Emeritus fellow

    I was an undergraduate at New Hall from 1966-1969 and loved being part of a new, exciting, challenging women's college. Now, in retirement, I love the way that the new Murray Edwards College remains resolutely supportive of women, has a wonderful young mixed Fellowship, and manages to keep the best of Cambridge College traditions whilst being totally unstuffy and flexible.
