Molly Gibson-Mee, a fourth year Classics and English student at Oriel, is a vlogger with over 5K subscribers on YouTube. Her videos offer a unique student perspective on what studying at Oxford University is like, and have been a great source of information for prospective students. A Student Ambassador actively involved with outreach work for Oriel, Molly talks to us about how her own experience with applying to Oxford served as her inspiration to make videos to help others.
Summer Eights 2019 was a historic success for M1, who took back the Head of the River title, making this their second Headship of the year after the Torpids win in March. This year also saw the most women’s boats entered since 1992. All eight crews demonstrated incredible Oriel spirit and treated supporters to a spectacular display of rowing prowess.
Congratulations to Oriel Departmental Lecturer in Ancient History, Dr. Aneurin Ellis-Evans, on the publication of his first book, The Kingdom of Priam: Lesbos and the Troad between Anatolia and the Aegean.
