It's the end of the academic year, and we celebrated that with various events throughout the term!
Welcome Back Drinks, our termly drinks reception, was held at the start of term at Doctorow Hall in St Edmund Hall. Apart from the usual chips, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks, members were treated to seaweed packets, Mamee noodle snacks, and a kaya toast and teh tarik booth supplying hot Milo and teh tarik (complete with froth) throughout the evening! It was a great way for everyone to catch up after the Easter vac.
Our next big event for the term was Punts & Pints, where we took advantage of the lovely sunny weather to organise a leisurely afternoon picnic near Magdalen Bridge. Both seasoned and first-time punters had a great time enjoying the scenery, fresh air and snacks and sangria made lovingly by the committee members.
Our welfare rep Jefri also got busy this term helping to co-ordinate and organise the distribution of OUMSSA Welfare Packs! With most of our members having exams this term (Prelims and Finals), they certainly brought a smile to many faces. We also held OUMSSA Hangouts to cater to anyone who wanted a break from revision -- a Saturday morning Picnic in the Park alongside usual Saturday frisbee, and a chilled out movie night at St John's College, where we screened Get Smart.
We wrapped up the term with our Finalists' BBQ, where we said goodbye to and celebrated the hard work of our finalist friends, who will soon be leaving Oxford. The 2016-17 OUMSSA committee came out in full force and made everything from roast pork to sushi, much to the delight of everyone who attended!
As we usher in the summer months, we'd like to say goodbye to our friends who have finished their degrees or time at Oxford, and look forward to welcoming another batch of freshers. Thank you to all OUMSSA members who attended and supported our events; have a great summer and see you all next term!
