UK launch of the Pembroke College Circle

by Rachel Smith

Saturday 27th September 2014 will see the official UK launch of the Pembroke College Circle.

This exciting new society brings together friends of Pembroke from all over the world and welcomes them into the life of the College. The Circle particularly wishes to involve those who have attended International Programmes at the College, family of alumni, and those who – through other connections – might be called ‘friends’ of Pembroke.

In addition to becoming part of a wider Pembroke network, members will receive regular College news updates and enjoy a number of attractive benefits including the opportunity to attend special events both in Cambridge and overseas.

The Master Sir Richard Dearlove, in his role as Chair of the Circle’s Board of Overseers, says: ‘The Pembroke Circle, recently established, is a wonderful way for all members of the extended and scattered Pembroke community who are not technically alumni to strengthen their association with the College.  It will link them effectively and efficiently to Pembroke’s wide and growing international network.’
