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'.
Old Wolves meet termly in College for lunches and sometimes talks. 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, and perhaps to eavesdrop on your stories.
