The Isis is an Oxford University student magazine which was established in 1892 and is still in print. Traditionally, it was the rival of Cherwell, a student newspaper established in 1920.

The Isis is the name given to the River Thames as it flows through Oxford, above Iffley Lock;

The River Cherwell, which rises in the Midlands, is a tributary of the Thames and joins the larger river at Oxford (as marked on the map).
