Join the Old Wolves

An 'Old Wolf' is whoever defines him- or herself as such, i.e., anyone with memories of Wolfson in former times, whether graduate student, ex-Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, or member of staff, and whether currently a member of Common Room or not, who enjoys meeting up with other 'Old Wolves'. Termly events, normally on Thursdays.

Lunch is usually in the Hall, at 12.30, followed by a talk in the Leonard Wolfson Auditorium at 1.30pm. New OWs are always welcome: do come and join us.

There's no charge, other than the cost of your lunch. A table is reserved in Hall, and lunch is on a self-serve, self-pay basis (cash or battels card at the till). Liquid refreshments, including a glass of wine, are provided (no charge).

The College Archives team will be there to welcome you back to College. Places are limited so please book your place with the Archives Office.
