It's inevitable that there are going to be people with two parents of the same sex, especially when some colleges have a 2:1 or bigger gender split.

On another topic, what Clubs and Socs are you interested in? I'm really looking forward to fresher's fair to see those hundreds of weird clubs and I'm planning to play badminton on either college or unversity level - if I can find a club on my not too advanced level
Does anyone know if university wide clubs in major sports are for top players only? Or do they have training sessions for intermediate players as well?
I think I'd quite like to learn a martial art- I looked at the societies list and there's a LOT to choose from. I quite like the look of trampolining too and I'd like to get involved in drama but I don't think there'll be time to do everything!

hope im not posting this in the wrong thread :/

i was just wondering if colleges give eu students starting a masters course the possibility to store some of their stuff in the college over the summer, before starting their degrees? I havent heard from the college I applied to yet so i dont want to email them asking about storage plus I would imagine it would vary from college to college, if possible at all. i need to know fairly soon though as im flying back to germany in 2 weeks time and need to get this sorted out.

I've had a look at companies that offer temporary summer storage but as I have absolutely no experience with these things, and know noone who does, im not really too keen on that solution

thanks!

I'd like to keep playing netball. Although I'm really not very good, so I hope there's a rubbish college team I could join I think Keble has a really good rugby team and a yearly ski trip (good god) which I am kind of scared means everyone is going to be super sporty, which I really am not!
I'd also like to join a debating society...not so much to regularly debate, but just to go and listen. Anyone know if it's worth joining the Oxford Union?

Probably the Inklings (if it still exists!), some literary and classical societies, and some random ones like fountain pen-lovers.

Despite having a reputation for avoiding sport/exercise at all costs, I have a strong and inexplicable urge to become heavily involved with climbing. :love:
I have quite the same reputation, unless you count piano-ing, which is very energy-consuming. I thought I might make the bold move and try rowing.

True actually, I was sweating after some Beethoven the other day, I felt like a concert pianist
I try to use that excuse with my mother, but it doesn't usually work ...
I use that excuse as well! And I played some Beethoven today. (It was the Pathetique - it was an absolute work out. And I could be playing the Tempest sonata in the middle of a blizzard and still end up drenched in sweat.) What were you playing?

This is your best bet, but you will have to pay for it:

once you're an official student I'm sure your college will give you a few boxes of storage space if you ask nicely

Most probably joining table tennis club and oxford business network. And probably gonna join some exotic sports like gliding or kempo and some other clubs where I can learn new things like maybe magic club or something. It would be very entertaining when I'm bored.

I think they should have training for intermediate and beginner level as well. Or at least they write that on many clubs' description http://oxforduni.groupspaces.com/gro...ts-recreation/

Yeah, I'm considering that. Not sure whether I'd go for OTC or URNU, though. Otherwise, the Union, maybe some musical/choir stuff; might even try some rowing for a bit.

You apply to join at the Freshers' Fair, then attend an evening talk, and then do a selection weekend.

I did the online application, so it got some details automatically from UCAS, and the address on mine is:

OXFORD UNIVERSITY
University Offices
Wellington Square
Oxford
OX1 2JD
