Welcome to the Trevelyan SCR web site. These pages provide useful information for both current and prospective members of the Senior Common Room.
Welcome back to College for the start of the new academic year. It is
a very important year for Trevelyan because we will be celebrating the
College's 50th birthday, throughout 2016. All sorts of events are being planned, and I
will let you know about them as they are announced.
Meanwhile, term starts again on Monday 12th October (although our
freshers and International students will have arrived the previous
week) so our calendar of formals, talks, music and other events begins
again. I will be sending out Dates For Your Diary emails as usual, but
please also remember to keep an eye on the website for announcements,
particularly about shared events between the three common rooms.
We have several new visiting fellows joining us this term, and I hope
they all enjoy their stay with us and get into college life and SCR
As ever, we wecome new members, so if you're an SCR member please
introduce your friends and colleagues to Trevs, and if you're not a
member yet but are browsing college websites because you're new to
Durham, please get in touch with one of the committee members to find
out more. We dine together reguarly, not only at formal dinners, but
also in a more relaxed way over lunch, and we also have a cosy common
room where SCR members can relax, have a coffee, and now we're fully
wired, check their email and do a bit of work if they are so inclined!
I hope to see many old and new friends in College over the next term,
Sally (SCR President)
