New Alumni Email July 2020

Preparing to leave St Cross


Dear Student,

Preparing to leave St Cross College and the University of Oxford - Visit the ‘St Cross New Alumni’ webpage for all the information you need!

Congratulations! We believe that you are coming to the end of your studies at St Cross, so before you embark on your next steps, we'd like to share some important information with you. Studying at Oxford was never going to be easy, but few could have predicted that your time with us would coincide with a global pandemic. Although it has been a challenging, concerning and unsettling term for everyone, I am proud of the way that you have all responded so resiliently.  

Like you, we are so disappointed not to have shared lunches and dinners with you in recent months. We know that you've missed conversations over coffee, BOPS, Balls, Summer Eights and so much more. We'd love to see you back at St Cross next year, particularly for our '2021 Alumni Gaudy'. This special event taking place over 2nd - 4th July 2021, will be an opportunity to welcome all alumni back to College, but part of the weekend will focus on you: our Summer 2020 Leavers. To make sure that we can stay in touch with you and keep you up-to-date about this and many other events, please do fill in the ‘St Cross New Alumni’ form.

The end of your studies does not mark the end of your relationship with College, merely the beginning of an exciting new chapter as a member of our St Cross alumni community. Please take a few moments to read the message below from your Alumni Relations team, to make sure you know what you need to do over the coming weeks.

I look forward to welcoming you back to College when you are able to return and in the meantime wish you all the very best for whatever comes next.

With best wishes,

Carole Souter, CBE
