Turf celebrations, final Wadham dinner


in Daily updates, Oxford

Milan Ilnyckyj, Kai Hebel, Claire Leigh, and Alexander Stummvoll

My last high table dinner in Wadham went well, closely following the general pattern that had become established. Those are one aspect of Oxford I will definitely miss. The opportunity to have a conversation about physics with the person on your left, interspersed with a conversation about Ancient Greek with the person on your right, is a rather valuable one.

Barring a possible brief trip to Europe, I should be in Oxford, relatively unencumbered, for the next two weeks. If there are any things that should be on my list of ‘must see before departure’ places, please let me know.

PS. Wish Claire luck. She is off participating in University Challenge, on behalf of St. Cross.

Good luck Claire. And yes, I think it must have been you I passed on the High Street that night.

Wadham leaps up the Norrington Table

The year’s Norrington results show that Wadham College has gone up to 7th out of 30 Oxford colleges, compared with 13th last year. The Norrington score, developed by Sir Arthur Norrington, former President of Trinity, in the 1960s, provides a way of measuring the performance of students at each college in finals. Visit the University’s site for the full results. Congratulations to our Wadham students!
