Oriel College, Oxford
It was founded in 1326 by King Edward II, following an earlier foundation by Adam de Brome.
The college received a major legacy from Cecil Rhodes, whose statue appears prominently on the High Street frontage. During 2015 there was a campaign to have the statue removed, but the College after due consideration, decided to leave it in place, while seeking "to provide a clear historical context to explain why it is there".
