AngharadAs I look back on my first term at Brasenose, I can’t believe freshers’ week was only a few months ago. It feels like I’ve been at Brasenose forever, but in the best possible way – it’s amazing how quickly college began to feel like home.

At the age of 21 the festive season seems to have lost some of the magic it once held for me, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get excited when I start to hear the Christmas classics on the radio. Today’s unusual blanketing of snow also helped to somewhat reignite the spark.

IMG 0768The Oxford open day I attended was quite a blur. It was my first time in Oxford and wherever I walked I was given brochures, pens and was told how great each college was. I don’t really remember which colleges I walked around in. All colleges melted into one. All except Brasenose.

IMG 0127Brasenose, like most colleges, has a student committee member (or two) in charge of organising fun college events for students to enjoy when they are not studying. These students are called Entz (entertainment) reps and this year they are Joey Fisher (2nd year Biochem) and Maria Ryan (2nd year Chemistry).

paulF copyThis summer I completed my final year exams in Law. Summing up three years at Brasenose is pretty difficult; Brasenose has been my home for what feels like a lifetime.

TomMacdonaldMy first year at Oxford was amazing. I have so many great memories and I’ve made so many new friends (unsurprisingly as I’m at Brasenose – the friendliest college).

LeanGI left Brasenose in 2016 with a BA in German and Russian. Apart from the incredible tuition I got during the time I spent in Oxford itself, the Year Abroad is what makes any degree in Modern Languages stand out.

BethPickfordLast month I finished my final year exams and in just a few short days I will be leaving Oxford and Brasenose. It seems to have gone by so quickly, yet I’ve experienced so much here at Oxford.

AdamRightHow to sum up my time at Brasenose? After 4 years at Oxford, countless lectures and tutorials, and a whole array of academic and social experiences, this is no easy task!
