It’s been a busy weekend here in Oxford. Our first seminar finished with a delicious three-course formal dinner in Corpus Christi College Hall, followed by a party in the auditorium complete with a photo-booth, Casino Royale themed games, and a chance for the students to show off their moves on the dance floor.
At the end of the dinner, Luke Berryman gave a rousing speech wishing our students luck with their exciting future endeavours and thanking them for being such a brilliant community and throwing themselves in to all the opportunities on offer. Nathan and Catherine had the impossible task of selecting two students to receive Deans’ awards. Jenna Garcia and Tin King Tai were recognised for their bubbly personalities and enthusiasm inside and outside the classroom.
It was a testament to the firm friendships that were made over the week that so many students woke up bright and early at 4 am to say goodbye to their friends who were leaving for early flights. Friends for life!
On Saturday we said goodbye to our single major first week students and welcomed a new group. A walking tour guided by our founder, Professor James Basker, through the Sunday evening Oxford streets set week two off to a brilliant start!
