Welcome to the first Nautilus of this academic year – our twelfth edition. We have expanded in size since our beginnings, but our aim remains the same: to bring you news of our Lucy alumnae, some of whom you may remember from your time at the College, other names that will be new to you. The theme this time is Education and here we bring you five different perspectives on this challenging topic. All of the writers have varied and interesting stories to share – remember, you don’t have to climb Everest, write a best-selling novel, or become a world-class academic or sportswoman for your life to be interesting to other alumnae. All our Lucy alums have their personal stories to tell, so keep sending them to us, please.
