Dearest Freshers,

Welcome to the wonderful Oriel college, what is to be your home for the next few years! First things first, a MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS is in order, for getting into both Oxford and its greatest college, Oriel!. Well done for making it in one piece through the application process, interviews and the dreaded results day; you’ve finally made it! It’s now time to look forward to what are going to be some of the best years of your life where you’ll make lifelong friends, study hard and party harder.

We are Max, Miranda and Charlie, and collectively we make up the Entz (a really cringe ‘z’-ridden shortening of ‘Entertainments’) team at Oriel. For the next year we have been entrusted with the task of putting together the college’s social calendar, organising all in-college entertainment from bops and film nights to pub quizzes and themed socials, and we’ll most probably be some of the first members of the JCR Committee you’ll meet upon arrival, as one of our largest tasks is organising Freshers’ Week for you all! We’ve been busy all summer putting together an array of awesome activities for your first week in college.

There’ll be a lot going on throughout the day and well into the early hours, information about which you shall soon be receiving in the form of a neat timetable, along with lots more information about what’s in store, but rest assured that Freshers’ week will have something for everyone, no matter what your interests are! Just a sneak peak of the events include a JCR Social (where you get to meet the very best of the JCR Committee, us, and we provide FREE drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), smoothie making, club nights, pub quizzes, film nights, and (of course) a Bop…

Bops happen three times a term and are huge fancy dress parties for the whole college in the bar. We release the theme a week before the event and then it’s up to you to come up with the most extravagant outfit you can; think BIG, BOLD and COLOURFUL, and extra points for originality. Some of last year’s themes included Tarantino vs Scorcese, ABC (Anything But Clothes), LGBTQ Through the Ages, and 1984. Some of this may seem a little daunting, but you’ll be having way too much fun to be nervous. Also, you’ll have loads of people to help settle you in including subject reps, welfare reps staircase reps and your college parents, who should be in touch with you before your arrival (there’s a possibility that our parents-to-be are more excited about meeting you than you are them). Alternatively feel free to contact any of us at any time at all!

You can find us on the JCR Committee page, and make sure to add our ‘Oriel Entz’ Facebook page. We know it won’t be long before you’re shouting ‘OOOOORIEL’ at the top of your lungs to the backdrop of a bar full of topless men dancing to Jackson 5’s “I want you back”, and sipping on an ice cold Glenny’s. Have a fantastic rest of your holiday and get ready to be welcomed into the Oriel family via Freshers’ Week 2014 – it’s going to be huge!

Love,

ENTZ

Max, Miranda, and Charlie
