January 2013: Our new committee are in the process of taking over at the start of this term, and we will shortly update our website. In the mean time, we have put up a temporary list of the new officers and how you can contact them here.
The JCR Committee are the people who are elected to represent you in all aspects of College life. You will get to know them all in your first week here, and they will be available to help you find your feet and settle in. Once you’re a student here, feel free to contact any of them at any time to discuss any issues you have with College life. So, who are these people and what do they do? Here’s the 2012-13 committee.

Hi everyone! I’m Simon and I’m your Vice-President. That means I’m in
charge of chairing our JCR open meetings, supporting the President at
College meetings and being in charge of the JCR Constitution. Most
importantly for you, I’m in charge of organising and running this year’s
Freshers’ Week! That means for all you Freshers, I’m the person to contact
if you get hopelessly lost, have any questions etc. There’s tonnes of
information on this website about college life so make sure to have a good
route around to see what life will be like here! There’s also a
John’s Fresher Facebook group to join, where you can get in contact with other
John’s Freshers and the JCR Committee. Congratulations on getting into St
John’s and I look forward to getting to know you all over the next few
months! No doubt you’ll be seeing my face a lot during Freshers’ Week so
feel free to grab me if you need anything.
There’s a separate section of our site where you can find out more about the Access work at St John’s.
Don’t forget to check out the other Ethical Affairs information as you explore our site!
We have loads of extra information around the site which explains all the facilities you have at your disposal in our wonderful College. Be sure to take a look!
Hi, I’m Sarah and I’m the Secretary and External Officer of the JCR. This
means I am responsible for assisting the JCR’s work with admin, taking
meeting minutes and booking rooms. As External Officer, I represent your
views at CUSU (Cambridge University Students’ Union) alongside the
President every week. I am keen to encourage greater participation in both
internal JCR work and University-wide CUSU activities, and I feel my
greatest achievement in the role so far was introducing pizza to our
college open meetings – which resulted in record attendance! Please feel
free to email me via hermes (sghw2) to raise any issues or suggestions that
I can take to college or CUSU.
Hi everyone, I’m Bhupinder and I’m the Treasurer of the JCR Committee for 2013. I’m in charge of the budget and decide what we spend our money on. This means supporting the rest of the committee in their work and helping the JCR to better represent you. If you have any queries or any suggestions on what we can do, feel free to get in touch.
There’s plenty of other information on our site about our Welfare provisions, useful contact details for services and plenty of other details. Be sure to check it out as you explore!]
