For people thinking of applying or wondering which college to choose...

http://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/oxfordtour/

gives you 360 degree photos from lots of different angles.
They have a lot of colleges up as well as several other places. You probably need a high-speed internet link though. Good for getting the "feel" of a place.

I love the one of Wolfson - I use it when I feel myself missing the place, and the river!

You can also see the Will&Lyra (of His Dark Materials fame) bench in the Botanical Gardens If you follow the description in the book, it's quite easy to get the right one, but to be honest, I found the Botanical Gardens quite disappointing when I visited it.

It's worse than that - he sells things like electric batons to dictatorial regimes (i.e. he sells torture equipment).

It just gets better - I'd thought he might have been a friendly arms dealer :rolleyes:

srcmit: the Said business school got significant funding (£20m out of £45m) from Wafiq Said, a Syrian whose fortune came from arms trading.

The Said who put up the money for the Said Business School has sold arms and riot control equipment to countries with poor human rights records. Don't know if he still does. There were some protests at the time it was opened, and I vaguely remember someone climbing up the spire outside it to unfurl a "Blood Money" banner or something like that.

There should be plenty of info in the student papers.

EDIT: Ah, you beat me to it. Just ignore this, then.

What can you do though? I'm sure if you look at the list of people who've donated to Oxford and Cambridge you'll see some interesting characters.

And Oxford's even been led by some - Cromwell was chancellor, wasn't he?

Having nothing better to do, I looked it up. Apparently he was chancellor from 1650-1657. But he imposed himself, rather than stood for election, so I guess you can't really blame Oxford. :rolleyes:
