News and updates from Balliol College

June 2017


'Finals are wrapping up and I’m heading into my final weeks as a Balliol undergraduate, reflecting fondly on the last three years but excited about the next life steps too. Along with eleven other Balliolites, I'm preparing to bring Peer Gynt to the Edinburgh Fringe. I’m also keenly exploring the map of America, preparing for my first ever visit there as a Pathfinder. I look forward to seeing some of you in September!'
Conor Jordan, BA English Language and Literature
