Freshers’ Week

The Day

During the day there are various important events organised by college which are compulsory. These include various admissions ceremonies, information and admin sessions and two FREE DINNERS, which are both really fun.

There are also loads of JCR events going on. These are all optional but are great for meeting people and helping you settle in. These include:

  • Drinks with subject groups (including older years)
  • A tour around Oxford by knowledgeable second-years
  • Speed meeting
  • Games
  • Rowing taster sessions
  • Lots of opportunities for coffee and cake
The Night

Most nights we’ve got two events running so you’ve got some choice about what you’d like to do. On Friday and Saturday there is one thing all night, but they are both Jesus college classics. Feel free to go to as much or as little as you like, but don’t be afraid to explore outside your comfort zone this week, as you’ll be likely to really enjoy it! Try and make sure you’re not tired when you arrive, as it is going to be one of the craziest weeks you’ve ever had.
