UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
The Oxford University Greek Society aims to bring students from both Greece and Cyprus together for
cultural, social and academic gatherings - providing both support for students and an opportunity to
network with both fellow students and society guests from both Greece and further afield.
The society aims to:
Foster awareness and appreciation of Greece within the University of Oxford.
Create a support network for students from Greece, and those with Greek connections
Promote the cultures of Greece including language, literature, visual arts, music, the performing
arts, and sport, in the spirit of inclusivity and with the goal of mutual understanding.
The society was founded in 1968, and ever since has been extremely active within the University. Events
related to Greece are more accessible than ever before to students and staff. The society allows us to
share our rich culture and heritage with those around us.
To make the society more responsive to the University’s large Greek population, the society has close
ties with SEESOX. SEESOX provides students with the opportunity to discuss contemporary and
contentious issues which affect Greece and south east Europe, such as politics, education, economics
and health, in a constructive and stimulating way.
