I am a first year student in Latin American Studies, studying political regimes, populism, and elections in the Andes. I hail from the great state of Vermont in the USA.
I’m a first-year student reading for an MPhil in International Relations and am interested in security in the Middle East. I seek to have you forget about your essays every once in a while over a lovely dinner. In the meantime, yoga keeps me sane.

Taking photos is a great way of being mindful of precious moments as they go by. We invite you to take photos this week and to put them up on the noticeboard in the Lodge. Feel free to add your name and a caption, or to leave your picture anonymous. By the end of the week, we will have created a collective photo exhibition for everyone to enjoy.

The College Registry welcomes anyone who would like to join us for a short walk to Port Meadow. We will try and walk mindfully, noticing the sounds around us and feeling our feet on the ground. Bring your camera with you to take photos for the collective exhibition!

Join the GCR for a game of rounders in the University Parks. Rounders is a team bat-and-ball game a little like baseball. No experience is needed to enjoy this opportunity to get together and have fun in a beautiful setting.
Outdoor activities (wellbeing walk, yoga and rounders) are weather dependent and will not run if the weather is bad.
Formal Dinners have a special place in academic and social life at Oxford taking on lots of different forms across colleges. Our Formal Hall is student-run and we try to make it a fun and fancy night out several times a term. It is a fantastic chance to dress up and enjoy the company of fellow Antonians, your guests and members from visiting colleges over an exquisite dinner with wine, music and a whole new air to the Hall. The evening usually begins with a champagne reception in the CCR and ends in our beloved Late Bar.
Exchange dinners with other Colleges have a long tradition at Oxford that we foster by inviting other Colleges to our Formal Halls and visiting them for a dinner in return. It is a great way to meet members of other Colleges in a more intimate setting, visit their dining halls and spend a lovely evening together.

The Global South Film Society is how St Antony’s would be in cinema: cosmopolitan, politically engaged, independent and collective.

Established in Michaelmas term 2011, the GSFS is more and more involved in inter-disciplinary events, such as organising lectures and discussion roundtables.
Everyone is welcome to join. To find out more, please visit our Facebook page.
