Matriculation 2016

Hats in the air - matriculation 2016

This year’s matriculation ceremony welcomed over 300 new Kellogg students into the University of Oxford. Saturday 15th October started ominously with dark skies and a light drizzle, but by the afternoon we were basking in a brief return of summer sunshine, perfect to welcome our newest members. Once suitably attired in subfusc, the students processed through Oxford to the Sheldonian Camera, where they were formally admitted to the University. They then returned to the College for the even more serious process of being organised into height order. That achieved, they were ready to have their photo taken then to retire to the dining hall and marquee to enjoy a lunchtime reception together with proud family and friends.

Photos of the day can be viewed on the College’s Facebook account –
