All graduates of College automatically become members of Robinson College Alumni Association (Pegasus). In the early days, undergraduates paid a subscription to join the Pegasus Alumni Society which managed all events and publications.
Nowadays, the Development Office in College arranges many things such as the Annual Reunions in September, the Annual Reception in London each July and the production of both Bin Brook Magazine and the Robinson Record.
The Robinson College Alumni Association (RCAA) now complements these activities by liaison with groups and individuals and suggesting and contributing to further events. There is a Committee of College Fellows and alumni which acts a focus for suggestions and these are welcome from any alumnus.
Every year in March there is the Annual Alumni 'Open' Dinner. In contrast to the September reunions, where year groups gather on a rotational basis, the March Alumni Dinner is open to any and all alumni every year. Any individual from any year, a group of friends or sports team or a subject group within or across the years – in short any alumni who are interested in getting together and meeting others are welcome and encouraged to attend. Group Tables can be reserved in advance. We have an afternoon gathering of alumni where speakers have included founding Warden Lord Lewis, former Senior Tutor Chris Hughes, Emeritus Professor Trevor Page, Professor Emerita Morna Hooker and Emeritus Fellow Martin Brett offering their reminiscences of College. We now have an Alumni Forum where alumni contribute their memories and talk about their careers.

19.30 Annual Open Alumni Dinner
All welcome subject and other group tables possible.
Although the two weekends – September and March - remain the mainstay of the Robinson Alumni Calendar together with the Annual Reception in London, we are always open to suggestions from alumni for add-on events during the rest of the year.
Such Alumni-organized events can be away from Cambridge, though not necessarily so, and with help for publicity from the Development Office and financial support from The Pegasus Alumni Society Funds. These may range from a pub meeting in London to a gathering in Cambridge to a restaurant meal in Manchester – in fact you suggest it and run it and the RCAA and Development Office will back you up - the suggestions come entirely from alumni.
If you are interested in organizing a Robinson alumni event, have any queries, suggestions, feedback or comments please let us know.
