Hey! I'm Alicia, a second 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 Aidan, a second-year music student from Colchester, and I'm your JCR vice president for 2017. 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 playing the bassoon, I love procrastinating work with reality TV and a G&T. If you need to contact me, use the email above or message me on Facebook.
Hi! I’m Sarah, a second year studying French and Spanish, and your JCR treasurer. As treasurer my main role is to plan the JCR budget, to ensure that the committee has enough money to function smoothly throughout the year. Apart from this I am in charge of maintaining JCR accounts and keeping all the finances in order. 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.
Hi, I'm Heather and I'm a 2nd year geographer. You'll usually find me smashing it on the volleyball court, organising talks for the Cambridge University Geographical Society, or playing a bit of liquid netball. As Green & Charities officer, I am in charge of both the environmental sustainability of college as well as overseeing the fundraising for the JCR's three chosen charities. For green this year, I hope to get Magdalene to the bronze level of the Green Impact initiative. This will involve working with college to reduce energy, improve recycling and waste management, and provide more vegetarian/ vegan/ locally sourced foods amongst other things. For charities this year, I hope to raise as much as possible for the three charities, as well as encouraging volunteering around Cambridge, and working with Cambridge RAG. If you have ideas or want to help out in any way then do get in touch!
Hey everyone! I’m Alex and this year I’m the JCR Equal Opportunities Officer. I’m a first 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.
If you have any questions or if this stuff interests you and you want to get involved, please get in touch via the email above or send me a facebook message!
Hello everyone! My name is Jools and I am a second 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 hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Hi, I'm Jemima, a first year HSPS student and Magdalene's female and non-binary Welfare Officer this year. As well as organising week five packs, some really fun events to promote positive welfare and working with the college to improve welfare provisions, I will be around as a confidential port of call should anyone have anything they want to talk about.

Happy new year x
Hey, I’m Kit, a first year NatSci from Sussex 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. Jemima and I will be organising week five packs and various welfare events throughout the term, as well as supplying free sexual health supplies such as condoms and pregnancy tests which we can leave in your pigeon hole or can be found in ours if needed immediately. If you need this or anything else just drop us an email, Facebook message or leave us a note in our pigeon holes. Hope you all have a great 2017!
Hi! I'm a first 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.
Hello there, I'm Lexie, a first year Phys NatSci from Vietnam. I'm going to be your Communications Officer this year. You have probably received a couple of MagdIN/OUT emails from me. Besides sending out emails/spamming everyone's inbox, I'm also responsible for all communications to societies, taking minutes at all JCR meetings and keep the noticeboard up-to-date. This year I'd like to keep everyone in college as informed as possible about what the JCR is doing and any events going on, by using Facebook and emails mainly, so look out for communications and have a great 2017!
Hi I'm Sam, a 1st year English Literature student from Surrey. This coming year, I'll be the Services and Buttery Officer, which involves looking after and improving the college bar, gym, JCR room and dining facilities. If you have any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact me by Facebook, email, or around college!
Hi, I'm Emily, a second year HSPSer with a love for all things Magdalene! I will be your Domestic and Academic officer for this year, which involves organising the room ballot, making sure that the library is running how we all want, as well as ensuring that you're all informed about storage, and all other housekeeping matters. If you have any questions, issues, or ideas don't hesitate to email me!
Hi, I’m Matt a first-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! I'm Eve and I'm your Ents rep for the next year. Like Robbie Williams, I'm here to entertain you, and I'm basically in charge of all your fun in college. So, if its a bar crawl, a movie night or an infamous bop, I'm your girl. In my spare time, I'm either DJing, eating stir fry or in the club smoking area. I'm always open to ideas, so email me or FB message me if you have anything that you think would go down well in college. I'll be working this year to ensure that everyone can have a good time.
