    Catz's one is always 'The Name Game' - dress as something beginning with the first letter of your name. It's great to get to know people, it's so much easier to remember "Rachael the Rainbow" or "Nick the Ninja" or "Stephen the Surgeon"!

    Apparently Somerville's is just the letter S!

    The choices for the Hugh's one were back to school or dress as your subject if that helps? I imagine the bops will have rather similar themes across the university . . . Then again I don't know

    Back to school tends to be school-uniformesque things, I think. White shirt, school (or other schoolish) tie?

    Is anyone else finding all this WebLearn stuff and all the things that are associated with it (Mobile Oxford etc) overwhelming? How often do students actually use these services on a day-to-day basis?

    Nexus is your lifeline - you'll need to check it numerous times a day to keep up to date. Emails from tutors, college, uni, JCR etc

    Weblearn - depends on your tutor/subject. For example some tutors ask you to submit essays through it, plus post any information you need (specific reading lists and so on). Most subjects will have general reading lists on it, lecture notes and so on.

    So for the time being, don't panic! It'll all fall into place, and you'll be told where to look for what.

    Ah, right. Exeter College are also having bouncy castles, so I was just wondering if the world's particularly small and we were at the same college.

    WTF? No fair! I hope that we do have cool stuff but that its being hidden away on the totally-evil-social-networking-site-that-shall-not-be-named, which I don't have. Anybody wanna go sneak around for me and bring it back and post it on here? Cmon, be my net-ninja! Pleeeeeeeeease??

    Ditto with getting the e-mail address. On that note:

    http://ox.ac.uk/applications/contact...find_email.y=8

    Yea...the third-last contact should give you full assurance of your new college-mate. For all those who already got their e-mail addresses, try searching your names on that search function.

    I feel your pain on the Weblearn/Nexus front; you don't get it until they process your contract and stuff, and since I'm out of the country my parents were only able to post it today, so I'll get it like Friday, then have to post it back to Oxford...

    The Internet's full of Bible, you'll be fine. :p:

    Merton get ice skating. I note that of the several social timetables posted so far the stereotyped 'only work' college seems to have the fullest. :awesome:
