Admission of Lord Williams of Oystermouth as Master of Magdalene College in the University of Cambridge today, Thursday, 17 January 2013 in College.
The President of the College admitted Lord Williams as Master of St Mary Magdalene College during a short ceremony witnessed by the Fellows, Junior Members and staff of the College.
Magdalene is keen to encourage young people with the academic potential to succeed at Cambridge to apply here, regardless of their background. With this in mind, we run events throughout the year:
College Open Days - 3-5 July
The best known of all the graduates of Magdalene is probably Samuel Pepys, who made his name immortal by his diary. He made a unique contribution to our national history by his work as a naval administrator, and he bequeathed to the College its greatest treasure - his library, a unique collection of 3,000 books and manuscripts, still preserved as he left it.
