The JCR Committee
PRESIDENT - RORY GAVINjcremail@example.com
Hello Magdalenites! I'm Rory, a HisPol student from the heavenly hometown of Stockport, and unfortunately for you all I'm President of the JCR. My role is to coordinate the brilliance within the committee and act as your chief representative to college. I'll be open to suggestions about how to improve Magdalene and be a listening ear to any problems which you'd like me to help out with. Think of me as a bureaucratic version of Bob the Builder, when anyone asks "Can we fix it?" my answer will always be "Yes we can!" (or "if the JCR budget can afford it").
VICE-PRESIDENT - NIKHIL BAIDjcrfirstname.lastname@example.org
Hey, I'm Nikhil, a second year Natsci and your vice-president. I’ll be working closely with the president and committee to make the JCR the best place for you!

LGBT+ REP - TOM MORRISjcrfirstname.lastname@example.org
Guten Tag, I go by the name of "Tom" and I am 2023's finest LGBT+ rep (at least in my mind).

The future students, doing thier dissertations on major moments in LGBT+ history, will look to 2023 as the year when leaps and bounds were made within the Magdalene JCR!
