Hi everyone,

I’m Izzie, your Development Officer for this year. I’m a 3rd year geography student and involved with numerous extra-curricular activities, both in and out of college.

Interests: I love everything castle – from lacrosse and stash, to the Porters and the Undie (our college bar). I also love watching films and sports, food and laughing with pals. Favourite Castle Memory: My favourite Castle memories mainly come from our college events, e.g. Castle Day, June Ball and Hounds (Castle-only discos in the Undie). However, nothing beats the Castle Sports Day we had when I was a fresher. The weather was amazing, and all years turned up for a day filled with friendly games and excessive laughing. It was awesome!
