egarded as one of the most beautiful of the Oxford colleges, Magdalen is lucky enough to have a deer park and a breath-taking 44m high tower. The grounds are immaculate and the gardens ever-blossoming, but Magdalen has more to offer than just meets the eye.


Magdalen R


The first thing that strikes you at Magdalen is just how nice the inhabitants are. Though this is one of the larger colleges, there is a strong feeling of community and friendship throughout the traditional surroundings. The JCR welfare team work hard to put on events that allow everyone to come together: from the weekly welfare doughnuts event to the new baking and jogging sessions, the team ensure that there is something for everyone.


There are many big events in the Magdalen calendar. The transition into May is celebrated in style. The world-famous Magdalen College choir sing from the top of the tower at sunrise to an audience of thousands. This awe- inspiring sight is one of the College’s proudest moments and students stay up all night to watch the choir from the grand cloisters or ‘Great Quad’. The summer term brings not only punting and Pimm’s, but also Batwillow – a massive party where everyone can have a go at sumo wrestling or choose their song at

As for more day-to-day life, there are so many societies and clubs here; everyone can find something for themselves, and if they can’t? Well just set something up! The College is very supportive and so alongside the more tra- ditional aspects of college life such as rowing and the various debating groups, the college proudly boasts one of the best ultimate Fris- bee teams in the city.


All undergraduates are guaranteed College ac- commodation throughout their degree, and all accommodation is very close to the College. Every room here has a telephone, mini-fridge and internet access. The rooms are certainly varied, but the unique character of each room is what makes Magdalen so special; whether you are in the en-suite rooms of Grove, or the quite frankly massive two room sets in New buildings, finding an amazing place to live is not difficult here.


Magdalen is a top college academically - consistently high up in the Norrington table – with an extremely well-stocked, 24-hour li- brary. However, the consensus of the students is that they work hard, but play hard too.
