On the Times Higher Education Student Twitter feed (@THEUniAdvice, if you aren’t already a follower), we have spells where we ask students to look after the account for a week to share their university experiences. 

Our latest student takeover was by Cherelle Malongo, a first year student at the University of Oxford, who has blogged for Times Higher Education Student about her foundation year at Lady Margaret Hall and finding her place at the institution as a black, working-class woman.

Now on starting her first year, she shares her experiences of fresher's week at the world's number one university, talking about social activities, exploring the university and finding her place. 

Read some of her tweets below and follow the rest of her week at #UniAdviceWeek.

As a part time student at Oxford, I did not do much of the freshers activities, but probably the most striking memory (and there are many from Oxford) was Matriculation in early October. It had been a bright and mild October so I could not understand why so many people had coughs! Freshers flu :) I'm now at Cambridge and matriculation is a very dull compared to Oxford, you matriculate in your college.

Have your say
