Hey, we’re Ollie & Anusha your JCR Co-Presidents for 2019. We’re second years studying Engineering and Maths. As Co-Presidents we lead the JCR Committee and act as the key link between students and College. We sit on committees such as CUSU Council and College Council to ensure that your opinions are conveyed to the right people to improve your John’s experience. Alongside our fantastic committee we’re working to make John’s the most exciting, most supportive and most enjoyable it can be for us as students, so if you have any suggestions please feel free to get in touch by email, or even just chat to us if you see us around college or in the buttery!

Hey, I’m Nina, second year Geographer and your Vice Pres for this year!

Being VP means I’m in charge of the JCR constitution, chair the open meetings we hold and more generally support the Presidents in what they do. I’m also in charge of Fresher’s Week, so if you ever feel a bit lost or confused during Fresher’s Week, or at any point during the year, I’m your first call. In the meantime, if you’ve got any questions or suggestions, please feel free to email me!

Hello! I’m David (he/him), a first-year medical student, member of the St. John’s rugby team and now, the Equal Opportunities Officer for 2019. I’m greatly looking forward to continuing the hard work of last year’s Equal Opportunities Officer and her sub-committee, ensuring St. John’s is an equal, inclusive and friendly community, that is proud to celebrate the diversity of its student body. This could not be achieved without the help of the BME, LGBT+, International, Women’s, Mental Health and Disabilities officers and the rest of the JCR committee, as well as the potential for collaboration with other colleges to organise speaker events, casual meet ups and Halls for minority groups. Ultimately, we would like you to be rest assured that we will work hard to ensure that everyone really feels like St. John’s truly is a home away from home. However, for this to truly be achieved I’d like to welcome anyone with any concerns or new and interesting ideas to get in touch with me either by email (dq220), or feel free to have a chat if you see me around.
