Matriculation matters

Wearing their ‘Trinity blue’ gowns, 192 Freshers gathered in Nevile’s Court for the rite-of-passage Matriculation photograph on 2 October.

Expertly managed by photographer John Thompson and his team, this year’s Freshers lined up in the cloisters and had their individual portrait taken in little more than a blink of the eye.

Then it was clambering in alphabetical order onto the framework that manages magically to accommodate all Trinity’s Freshers.

Matriculation marks the formal admission of a student to the University of Cambridge. As part of Admission to Trinity, each Fresher signs the Admissions Book in the Wren Library, a practice that dates back hundreds of years.

In a few weeks, students will be able to view and if they wish buy the Matriculation group photo and/or their individual portrait, which are framed and mounted with the College crest.
