Newcomers and Visiting Scholars



NVS stands for Newcomers and Visiting Scholars. 

People are coming and leaving all the time. The faces are changing; some of them stay for years and others only for a week. But, there is a small team who are always there. Often invisible fairies, on tiny shoulders of whom lay all the responsibility of well-being, creating interesting times for all who are new to Cambridge.  

They are always smiling, welcoming and supportive, they take care of us and create a safe and inspiring atmosphere. They know the answers to so many questions and are always in a good mood, with open hearts.   

But, who is standing behind?  Each is unique and has a story to tell.  Please meet the NVS volunteers and hear their stories.
