About the Ruskin Fellowship

The Ruskin Fellowship is a fellowship of past students, academic and non-academic staff, and associate members who support the aims and objectives of this unique College.

The Fellowship offers annual reunion weekends, at which there are speakers, discussions and social events; a chance to revisit and relive your times at Ruskin for a weekend, and a chance to meet old friends and to make new ones.
