As the autumn gathers pace students will be returning to Oxford from all over the world, many of whom will be coming to Oxford for their first term of study. To help our students settle in to life at Kellogg College, we are running a programme of events called Welcome Weeks. Starting on Wednesday 24th September these events are for all new and returning students, and run until Sunday 12th October.
On Saturday 13th September we opened our doors as part of Oxford Open Doors, the annual event organised by Oxford Preservation Trust. Nearly 70 members of the public came to look around College and we were serenaded by our Junior Dean, Maximilian Buston (DPhil Archaeology), who gave us an impromptu concert playing the grand piano in the Dining Hall.
Dr Carlos Vargas-Silva, a Research Member of Common Room at Kellogg College and senior researcher at Oxford University's Migration Observatory, has commented on the UK’s net migration figures in the national press.
He says in The Huffington Post: "Net migration has increased again, and is now close to the levels when the current Government took office, suggesting that the Government's net migration target of under 100,000 is now effectively impossible to hit.
Once again Kellogg is participating in Macmillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 26th September 2014. Come along to College and for a small donation, enjoy a hot or cold drink and some delicious baked treats.
All monies raised go to Macmillan to support their cancer services.
