Hello and welcome to the Student Guide 2012! Whether you’re fresh to this city or a seasoned pro returning to Brookes or Oxford Uni for another merry Michaelmas term, we hope this magazine will provide you with helpful eats (p4), beats (p20) and cheats (p15) for your student life. Whatever your budget, we also bring you a peek of sinless style at a snip from our friends at Reign (p10-11) and words of wisdom from recent graduates. On a more serious note, help is at hand if the Black Dog is biting (p13). Don’t forget to check out the Oxford Mail every Thursday for The Guide and visit www.oxfordmail.co.uk for all your local news and features. Email liz.nicholls@oxfordmail.co.uk if you’d like to be involved with future features.
