Corpus vac cut for royal wedding


Corpus students will have their Easter vacation curtailed by two days to make way for the royal wedding.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, whose engagement was announced in November last year, are due to be wed on Friday 29th April – the date earmarked for Trinity collections.

In an email to the JCR, Senior Tutor John Watts announced that the college had decided to re-schedule collections “to allow loyal subjects to celebrate the royal wedding.”

The collections will be held on the Wednesday and Thursday, meaning students are required to return to college on the Tuesday rather than the Thursday.
While some students may be glad to get their exams out of the way early, others have expressed anger at the decision.

“My work’s being disrupted by the wedding of a boy who was born with the privilege of not having to do any,” said one second year English student.
