- Two St Hugh's freshers had blacked up to a bop
- Illegal immigrants had been arrested at the Alternative Tuck Shop
The Comment section has a well respected tradition of printing cutting-edge opinion pieces from students on a range of Oxford and national issues. Our best debates and opinion pieces are read around the university and online, regularly attracting several thousand hits.
Joining the Comment team also allows you to interview the great and the good of national and world politics. This year Cherwell Comment interviewed George Galloway, Peter Mandelson and Nancy Pelosi - to name but a few.

The Lifestyle section is famed for Fit College, one of Oxford’s more superficial institutions. There’s space for pretty much anything as long as it’s entertaining and thought provoking. Sharp features and interviews are our forte. See our recent interview with the Ann Summers CEO Jacqueline Gold, for instance.
Culture is one of our largest sections, with pages dedicated to Film, Stage, Music and Arts and Books. We’re one of the first ports of call for reviews of all the student plays, as well as all the other cultural delights that Oxford offers.
If you'd like to edit the whole Culture section, fill in the Section Editor form. If you'd like to be in charge of one of the individual Film, Stage, Music or Arts and Books pages, please fill in the Deputy Section Editor form. If you would just like to contribute to Culture occasionally, there's no need to fill in a form - please just email firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest.
