Hi, I’m Steff and I’m a fresher doing law but I’m also secretary of the JCR. My job is mainly to take the minutes in JCR meetings (open meetings and committee meetings) and send them out to make sure everyone can keep up to date. I also manage the JCR website and am in charge of the termcard, which gets released at the start of each term, so if you have any events you’d like to be put on there, I’m your gal. Thats pretty much everything I do, but if you have any questions about the role/about minutes or events you can email me at stephanie.hodgetts@oriel.ox.ac.uk or just stop me around college.

Finally, I’m here to represent suspended students or point those who want to explore suspension in the right direction. Do message me at benedict.morillo@oriel.ox.ac.uk with any questions x

Greetings! My name is Alexander (although I have been known to go by ‘Big Al’); I am a second year Music student and your facilities officer for this year, here to facilitate your every need. My responsibilities include the upkeep of all JCR facilities, including those in the JCR itself and the bar, so if there is a problem please do not hesitate to contact me and I will strive to rectify it swiftly. I am also very eager to hear your suggestions for new items and facilities with which to equip the JCR; if you would like anything, simply get in touch and I will look into acquiring it. The other main aspect of my role is the organisation and supervision of the JCR room ballot in 2nd week of Trinity term. If you have any questions about how this works (or suggested improvements) I am happy to listen; the room ballot can seem somewhat daunting at times, especially to freshers, so I will try my best to alleviate any concerns. Please feel free to contact me over Facebook, by email (alexander.walls@oriel.ox.ac.uk), or in person (Staircase 23, Room 2). My door is always open, so do pop round for a cup of tea or a glass of port and we can discuss facilities (or music, politics, Ken Clarke, the North – whatever you like).
