2023 Telethon Campaign
We are tremendously excited to announce that this year’s Telethon Campaign will run 14-27 March and will be held on site for the first time in three years. Our students are keen to share College news with you, to gather your feedback on our events and activities, as well as talk to you about your experiences since leaving St Hugh’s. In addition, we ask that you consider making a donation towards the Area of Greatest Need. To find out more information and to support the College with a one-off or regular gift, please click here.
We hope that you enjoy hearing from one of our current students, as much as they will enjoy speaking with you.
Please note that in order to ensure that our team of student callers deliver the best experience possible, calls may be recorded for training and monitoring purposes.

Doris Vidas is a first-year DPhil student in Archaeological Science at St. Hugh’s College. She finished her undergraduate at the University of California – Los Angeles in Anthropology with a focus on digital archaeology and a minor in linguistics. She continued on to complete a Master of Archaeological Science at the University of Oxford, investigating early crop-growing regimes in Neolithic Bulgaria using stable isotope analysis. She has continued to build on her interest in studying ancient agricultural systems through her current research in Neolithic Greece, where she investigates crop cultivation and animal husbandry practices of some of Europe’s first farmers. She hopes her research will contribute to current discussions in sustainable agriculture, biodiversity, and biocultural heritage. She enjoys reading, writing short stories, doing yoga, and taking her dog on long walks in the countryside.
