LIBRARY WELFARE SECTION
A Student Support collection in the Jesus College Library (section SS in the Lower Library) holds books on study skills and welfare is- sues, whether for your own use, or to help you support a friend. Borrowing is anonymous: neither staff nor students can see who has which books. Simply take the books you need from the shelves. When you have finished with them, place the books directly on the returns trolley.
The college parenting system is central in helping to promote student support within our college. When joining us, students may expect to be welcomed by their college parents. These are students from older years who have volunteered to ‘adopt’ a first year in order to help them to settle into Oxford and college life. Inter-year bonding is a key feature of the Jesus college student experience, and the passing-on of insider’s knowledge from older to incoming members also helps to foster a sense of college community.
