When I came up here as a very green lad (said I to myself - said I), I’ll cleave to what’s good and eschew what is bad (said I to myself – said I); All sin and excess I’ll steadfastly shun, Take breakfast at eight, and luncheon at one, And couch me at ten with eight hour’s work done (said I to myself- said I).
The Fresher’s resolve (The Sex, 1908, Michaelmas Term vol. 35)
Peterhouse Freshmen, October 1886

Exhibitions

Current exhibitions

Students old, students new

The ‘Students old, students new’ exhibition is located in the Front Hall and features images and literature from the Peterhouse archives that help create a sense of the experiences of past freshers.  It is hoped that our newest Petreans may find something to relate to in this material.

 

Past exhibitions

Details of recent past exhibitions, exhibitions of Peterhouse materials mounted in the University Library, and of displays elsewhere in the College may be found on the Perne and Ward Libraries blog.

Printed catalogues of many past exhibitions are available on request from the Ward Librarian.
