Adeline Gabriel, current Chair of the Ormond College Students’ Club
The Ormond College Students’ Club (OCSC) is the conduit for turning the ideas of 500 students into action and the driving force behind an Ormondian’s experience.
The OCSC aims to serve the cultural, academic, pastoral, and social interests of the Club and its members. This is achieved through providing Ormondians with year-round social events and activities, an avenue to participate in intercollegiate competitions, leadership and personal development opportunities and countless other benefits.
The Club is led by all of its members; anyone can take part in its development and shape the direction it takes for the better. The student community’s ethos instills both a sense of belonging and uniqueness.
Ormond will perhaps most importantly provide you with the opportunity to challenge your ideas and create lasting memories. Over lunch in the Dining Hall or anywhere in the College, you’ll discuss life’s intricacies and debate everything from provocative philosophical conundrums to last night’s football match. In this informal context, you’ll also learn about yourself, your peers and the world in which you live.
This is the purpose of the Ormond experience: being surrounded by your mates, while at the same time figuring out how you are going to make a different world.
