Hi, I’m Phoebe! I study Human Sciences and I am the JCR President for the 18/19 academic year. My role is to lead the JCR committee and oversee all JCR projects – encouraging participation in college life and ensuring your voice is heard. I sit on lots of committees with the fellows and employees of the college who decide on how college is run. This covers academic affairs, the facilities of the college and welfare support for students. I also get to negotiate accommodation and food charges for the year, as well as regulate the JCR Clubs and Societies budget. It’s also my job to carry out the ideas brought to JCR open meetings. These are fortnightly meetings which I chair, with decisions in the meetings directly affecting your life in college. We cover everything from spending of JCR funds, lobbying to college and decisions on university-wide issues. I encourage all JCR members to come down to open meetings – whether it’s to just attend, eat the free pizza or by getting involved through a motion to improve college life. The meetings are also a great way to get to know people in college and how the student body is run; you never know, you might end up applying for one of our roles!
However, most importantly my job is to represent you and your views! You can contact my email at any time with any questions, queries or suggestions you might have related to college. I’m happy to help!

Hi everyone, I’m Emil, a second year Physics student, and your JCR Treasurer. I will be in charge of handling all of the finances for our wonderful JCR. This entails managing our accounts, paying for events and subscriptions, buying cool new stuff, and sorting out the budget. Most importantly, I’ll be the one ordering all the pizza’s you could possibly want for the JCR open meetings; so be sure to come down for some free pizza. Basically, I ensure that our money is spent wisely so we can get the most out of it.
If you want to know more about my role or have any treasurer-related questions, feel free to contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org or if you see me around the JCR (most likely playing pool), come up and have a chat.

International Students Rep
But Freshers aren’t just for Freshers’ week, and my other jobs are making the Freshers’ Guide, overseeing the stash order, and organising events specifically for the Freshers throughout the year, but with a huge focus on integrating the years and generally making sure everyone has a good time. Basically, I want to help the Freshers’ feel part of the Catz community as soon as possible! I’m hoping to have AT LEAST one conversation with every single Fresher, so please do feel free to chat with me if you see me about (unless you’re not a Fresher – go talk to the Welfare Reps or something).
