A great blog for DPhil scientists!

Category : Welfare

I came across this blog, and have found it really interesting. Here’s a link to one of the entries – a great discussion of the nutritional merits of beans and rice – both very affordable (which, as time goes by and money runs out, is critical) and very nutritious (you don’t want to waste away!) aimed at graduate students, in particular scientists.

Out of term meal times

Category : Notices , Welfare

In case you fancied some hall food, here are the current arrangements for dining durung the Easter vacation;

Remember, you need to sign up for lunch and dinner by 10am on the day, and it says that you get charged even if you dont turn up (!). This can be done on the intranet ‘Hall sign up’ page.

Breakfast may not be the full English sadly, but there should at least be cereals and toast. I think it varies.

Freshers – Get Acquanted!

Category : Sports , Welfare

Freshers, you are afraid. It’s like that movie Jurassic Park and the scene where all of the dinosaurs run over the hill and the people have to run away and hide behind a tree…. isn’t it? Oh. It’s just me who feels that way :-/

I wish I had had these to read before I came to Oxford! As boy scouts the world over know, BE PREPARED DIB DIB!!
