Senior Fellow Luncheon is a college tradition that dates back to 1984. All Senior Fellows are invited to meet in the Junior Common Room for drinks at 12:00 pm followed by lunch in the Upper Library. A chosen Senior Fellow delivers a talk on the subject of their choice. A discussion and Q&A follow if time permits. Lunch wraps up at 2 pm sharp. An invite for each luncheon will be sent out by the Principal’s office generally a week in advance. Make sure to RSVP, as spots fill up quickly.
