The Other Place
The Bird and Baby

The High Street.
Rowing races which take place in February. The term ‘torpid’ originally referred to a college’s second VIII. The races, while still fiercely contended, are less prestigious than the Summer Eights.
Summer term, running from April to July. See also: Michaelmas term, Hilary term.
Tutorial. In Oxford, this refers to a small, weekly class of one to four students. Where possible, tutorials are held in a student's own College and taken by a lecturer or Fellow of that College, who is known as the student's Tutor and with whom the student will hopefully develop a close working relationship (for example, AJP Taylor was Tutor in History to several generations of students at Magdalen College). Exceptions are made in cases where a student is studying a subject in which no academics in his or her College teach.
