Exeter College graduates visit Cambridge
On November 26th, about 40 members of Exeter College’s Middle Common Room spent a day in Cambridge, visiting Exeter’s sister college there, Emmanuel. The group were given lunch by Emmanuel’s MCR, which offered homemade sandwiches and cakes. In spite of the rain and cold (weather that Oxford never suffers from, of course), the graduates spent some time sight-seeing in the city before being invited to drinks by Lord Wilson, Master of the College and his wife. Lord Wilson is former Permanent Secretary to the Cabinet.
The graduates were amused to discover that neither he nor the Rector of Exeter knew why the two colleges were sisters, and left Cambridge promising to discover and report the result in next year’s Exon magazine.
