From the Latin gaudium for ‘joy’ and the imperative gaude ‘rejoice’, Gaudies are an opportunity (indeed, an obligation) to celebrate with other members of the College, both from the same cohort as well as of different generations.

Hosted by the Principal, Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt, and comprising of Afternoon Tea in the Principal’s Lodgings, an update about the College’s activities by Sir Nigel and a three course Black Tie Formal, gaudies are generally the highlight of the alumni social calendar.

As the College transitions to the new pattern of gaudies, which ensures that everyone is invited back to College every five years on the anniversary of their matriculation, this June 23rd 2017, we celebrate the 1952 and earlier, 1977, 1990, 1997 and 2009 cohorts.

Hard copy invitations will be sent out for this event, so we advise all alumni in these years to update their contact details as soon as possible so as to not miss out!
