Become a CHOP college rep!

One thing that many people are struck by when they arrive in Cambridge is how prevalent homelessness is
here. Cambridge Homeless Outreach Programme (CHOP) is a student society which works to provide
students with opportunities to fundraise, volunteer and support the homeless community in the city. CHOP is
recruiting college reps to promote events in each college and run their own mini events, such as collections
and bake sales. If you’re interested please email yg321@cam.ac.uk no later than Wednesday 17th October
briefly explaining why you’d like to be a rep for St John’s. You may also like to come to our Freshers Squash on Tuesday 9th October, Pembroke College New Common Room, 7-8pm where representatives from five local homeless charities will be talking about what they do and how you can get involved!

Inside Uni

Hey everyone!
This non-profit, student led project aims to make the Cambridge application more transparent for everyone. Ultimately, we want to make sure all prospective students can approach the application with the same information.
We’re building a free website (http://insideuni.org) to bring together crowd-sourced student advice on interviews, application preparation, colleges, scholarships and existing access schemes. There’s tons of great stuff out there so we want to help the students who need it find it (and make sure they don’t have to resort to unreliable online forums for advice).
The project is growingly rapidly every week – every student on this page is part of the journey so we’ll keep you posted on progress.
Any ideas? Want to learn more? Just fancy saying hello? Reach out anytime and drop us a message

University Societies Opportunity

Nominations are sought for membership of the Technical Committee of the Societies Syndicate.

The Technical Committee meets twice a term and considers applications for financial support from Clubs and Societies. The Junior Proctor chairs the Committee. Membership includes twelve members of the University in statu pupillari, one appointed by each of twelve societies.

The person nominated by your society should, ideally, have some knowledge of the workings of clubs and societies, and particularly their financial arrangements, but neither is essential. The junior members on the Committee do not represent their society as such, but ensure that the composition of the Committee reflects the range of societies eligible for financial assistance from the Syndicate, and members generally find their year’s service enjoyable and interesting.

The first of next year’s meetings is due to take place on 30 October 2018. We therefore ask that nominations be sent to societiessyndicate@admin.cam.ac.uk by Monday 8 October 2018.

 

This is an opportunity for your members to gain experience of serving on a University committee, whilst also playing a useful role supporting the work of student clubs and societies.

Cambridge Hands On Science

CHaOS (Cambridge Hands-On Science) will once again be demonstrating at Strawberry Fair (on Midsummer Common) on Saturday 2nd June to families, children and occasionally a few enthusiastic fair goers! The event will run 12-6pm with set-up/clear-up time either side (approx 10.30am-7.30pm) and will include a FREE LUNCH!
Demonstrating at Strawberry fair is a great way to get some hands-on science demonstrating experience before our summer tour, or a compact alternative if you can’t make it. Whether you need a break leading up to exams (which could still leniently be called revision) or a fun wind down after finishing this is the event for you!
Please sign up by Wednesday 23rd with the link below:

Lady Margaret Players

Fed up of highlighting? Weeping over essay plans? 
NO MORE. Come to Clickbait and laugh an evening away. 
Alfred Leigh takes a deep dive into the rabbit holes of the internet in his comedy Powerpoint, following a trail of Clickbait. Through this, he’ll reveal to the public the weird, the wonderful, and the things he really regrets clicking on.
From a history of Clickbait to an examination of the bottom feeders who inhabit the unknown realms of the web, Alfred uncovers the inhuman forces that govern the underbelly of the modern world.
A surreal web-comedy that combines a lecture with procrastinating.
What a way to spend an evening. 
1st – 3rd June. 9pm. Palmerston Room. Fisher Building.
Ticketing:

Sports Results

The College Basketball team defeated Darwin 50-41 in the Cuppers Final to take the trophy back to Johnsbridge.

In cricket, the season started with the team beating touring team Hetorai by 73 runs (Selway, 100*). In Cuppers, the team beat Clare by 9 wickets before their match against Christ’s was abandoned due to rain (with John’s set to win by Duckworth Lewis by 25 runs). The team then lost to Emma by 10 runs, meaning progression in the competition is in the balance.
