Hello Freshers' 2015

image2Undergraduate First Years officially became part the Brasenose community at the beginning of October when they came up to Oxford to experience Freshers’ Week. They were welcomed by another self-professed fresher, our new Principal,  John Bowers QC.

The week featured a Jazz afternoon in Chapel, historical tours of Brasenose, a BBQ down the Boat House and multiple performances by Oxford’s own acapella groups and comedy troupes. Freshers also experienced a Ghost Tour of Oxford, the traditional Brasenose-themed ‘bop’ and a Ceilidh to round out the week.

Jess Freedman, the student Access and Admissions rep and lead organiser of Freshers’ Week, had this to say: “It was a week full of activities, enthusiasm and excitement, showcasing all Brasenose has to offer, and a delight to be a part of. The Freshers settled into college life as older years went out of their way to welcome them.”

Siddarth Shrikanth, student President, said “It’s remarkable that even though a third of all undergraduates leave and a new cohort joins us every year, Brasenose feels much the same as it did when I first came up- warm, welcoming and incredibly friendly. I’m proud of the work our team did this year in putting on a great Freshers’ Week, and excited for the coming year.”
