Student-Alumni Evening, Thursday, 15 December, 2016

Fine-Dining-Etiquette

As we were unable to arrange our usual Freshers’ Party in September, we are organising a stunning Student-Alumni Evening on Thursday, 15 December, 2016 at the Novotel, Kirchberg, in the Ermesinde Room. We will arrive around 19:30 for a gentle apératif, and when we are all present three of the students from Luxembourg currently studying in Cambridge will make brief presentations of their research. Three students with three very different subjects!!

  • A Theory of Shape-shifting Droplets” by Pierre Haas doing a PhD in Mathematics
  • “Politics in the Age of Populism and Referendum-mania” by Léonie de Jong, doing a PhD in International Relations and Politics. Very topical!
  • A subject in art history by Eléonore de Sterio, who is an undergraduate student.

10 minutes each, with 5 minutes for questions!

After which, we will enjoy a cold and hot buffet provided by the hotel. This will be an opportunity for the students and alumni, and some parents, to exchange their experiences of life in Cambridge.

We already have a good turnout, but if you are an alumnus and would like to attend, there is still time – until Monday, 12 December! Just drop me a line at secretary@cambridge.lu, and send €45 to the Society’s bank account at BCEELULL IBAN LU24 0019 3855 9528 0000 with the mention “Student/Alumni Evening 15-12-2016”.  Drinks are to be paid for on the night.

Should be a good evening!
