Message from Alan Bookbinder, Master of Downing College


"I’m delighted to welcome new students to Downing for the first time and to welcome back returning students. I wish you all a productive and enjoyable year. Returning students will know that Downing is a friendly community that prizes academic excellence as our core purpose but also encourages involvement in the cultural and sporting life of the College and supports the JCR and MCR across its own broad range of activities. The Fellows and the College staff are here to help make your time here happy and successful. Freshers will soon receive an invitation from me to drinks in the Master’s Lodge, so I look forward to meeting you then."
