"Living at New College for the past two years has been an incredible experience and I am so grateful I have had the opportunity to interact with so many people from different backgrounds."
VERA FROM FLYNN, ACT - STUDIES ARTS - BALL COMMITTEE
The social life at New College is really active, and between university work and college, I am never bored. The friends I have made at my time here are among the closest I have had in my life, and it is great to be able to share everything with them. I don’t think the transition to university would have been as easy if I were not living at college. From the first day, my Oldies made sure that I was having fun and that I could get involved in the community.
The annual New College Ball is one of my favourite nights of the year, because everyone from College dresses up and has a nice meal together. I had the honour of planning it this year, and it’s like throwing a huge party for 250 of my friends! I was exciting to see how everything worked out, and it was a spectacular evening.
I also love playing in the inter-college sport competitions, because it is a great way to keep fit whilst living on campus. Our teams are very friendly, everyone gets a go, and it is a great way to take a break from study and university life. The atmosphere at sporting events is great, with college coming to the games to cheer on our teams and enjoy a night of sport. I also enjoy winning against the other colleges!
