Hey! I'm Alicia, a third year studying Politics and Sociology and I'm Magdalene's JCR President for 2017. At home up north I am a lifeguard and swimming teacher, and at Cambridge my life seems to be split between the library and the pub. My role this year is to represent the JCR student body both within College and at CUSU. I will represent the undergraduate students at Magdalene within committees higher up the college, as well as to coordinate JCR social events and services. I aim to implement changes that will improve life for all the students at Magdalene, so if you have any issues or suggestions feel free to drop me an email or Facebook message and my door is open for a brew and a chat.
Hi, I'm Alex, a second year medic from Worcester (just south of Birmingham), and I'm your JCR vice president for 2018. My role will be working closely with the JCR President, organising open meetings and coordinating with Cambridge's Student Union (CUSU), as well as with the other elected officers here in Magdalene and their sub-committees. When I'm not busy pretending to remember all drugs on my pharmacology course - I can be found generally drinking tea or working on my next (as one fellow remarked - "obscene") bop outfit!
Feel free to get in touch with me if you've got any questions/suggestions, I can be reached by the above email or on facebook!

If you have any questions related to this, do not hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to answer them as well as I can.
Hey guys, I’m Kit, a second year NatSci from Sussex, and I’m gonna be your Green and Charities officer for 2018.

This year, I’ll be in charge of ensuring that college is as environmentally sustainable as possible, as well as raising money for the JCR’s three chosen charities in as many different and exciting ways as possible.

Hey everyone! I’m Alex and this year I’m the JCR Equal Opportunities Officer. I’m a second year medic, so enjoy all the things that are to do with that, as well as drinking tea and heading out to glitterbomb on Tuesdays! As equal ops officer, its my job to try and ensure that everyone at Magdalene can make the most of there time here, whether that be by individual support or by putting on events to try and make the college a more diverse and inclusive place. The largest part of this is managing the subcommittees: LGBT+, Womens, Internationals, BME & Disabilities. (Make sure to check out our page via the college life link at the top)!
Another part of the job is promoting the CUSU liberation campaigns in college and trying to bring Magdalene to the front of these issues to help foster a great environment for everyone here.

Hello everyone! My name is Lucy and I am a first year student studying Human, Social and Political Sciences. Access is all about prospective students with a particular focus on increasing representation among those from under- privileged backgrounds and those who are under- represented in the college and university community. As Access Officer I would like to draw upon the wide range of student experiences at Magdalene to dis- assemble the myths that surround Cambridge. Outside of studying I like to attend some of the many amazing talks around Cambridge particularly ones with a political or social focus, socialise with my friends, and sleep! Please do not contact me if you have any questions!

Hey, I’m Alex, a first year Geographer and I’m going to be your Male and non-binary Welfare Officer for 2017. The welfare role first and foremost involves being a confidential and friendly port of call for everyone in college who wants to chat about any welfare-related issues.

Hi! I'm a second year engineer from Birmingham, and your IT Officer for 2017. I manage the JCR website and can provide occasional tech support around College whenever the JCR (or its members) need it.
While I am available for tech support to JCR members, if you have an IT-related problem in College, your first port of call should usually be the Computer Office, who will probably be better suited to help you!
(See this page for further details)
Please don't hesitate to approach me in person, over Facebook or at the email address above if you have any suggestions for what can be done better with college IT (like WiFi, online services, etc.) or are having any tech difficulties.
Interested in this role? Elections are coming soon - Keep an eye on JCR emails/facebook group for further updates!
Until this position is filled, all emails are being forwarded to the vice-president.
Harry, 20, from Sheffield. First year Natural Sciences student and JCR officer for services, bar and buttery. I look after the spaces in college set aside for undergraduates, such as our combination room and the games room, and represent our interest in the facilities shared by all members of the college, such as the squash court and the two gyms. I also work with college staff to organise Halfway Hall, and to improve the food and drink that college provides us. These things are important to all of our daily lives in college, so I hope lots of you will email me your questions and recommendations.
Hi! I'm Hannah, a first year Physical Natural Scientist from Kent and I will be your Domestic and Academic officer for this year.

If you have any questions, issues, or ideas don't hesitate to email me!
Hi, I’m Matt a second-year Law student and I’m the Freshers Rep for 2017! When I’m not making headway through a lengthy reading list you can find me supporting the mighty lavender and navy on the rugby field or singing my lungs out on a Wednesday night in Cindies! Freshers Rep most importantly involves looking after the new Magdalenites before and after they arrive, and to ensure that they settle in as quickly as possible to the hectic Cambridge lifestyle by being a friendly and approachable face around college. I will be organising both Freshers and Refreshers Week this year, which I hope everyone is as keen as I am to get involved with! If anyone has any questions or concerns please drop me a message!
Hi there! I'm Giri, a second year medic fortunate enough to be your Ents Officer for the year ahead.

Of course, any ideas you have at all, be it a bop theme or wild new event, send it my way and we can try to make it happen. If you do see me around singing Lion King (not just in Cindies sadly) please do say hi!
