Welcome Week
As the world responds to COVID-19, this photo taken in March during our 2020 Welcome Week reminds us that, with hope, we will return to the energy and activity of a normal College year in 2021. Until then, our best wishes are with everyone who is grappling with the impact of the virus beyond the College, including those studying for university entry.
