Start of Michaelmas term

Dear MCR members,

Welcome back to the start of a new academic year. Your Michaelmas term cards will be distributed to your pigeon holes soon, and an electronic version has been emailed out. Check out the upcoming MCR events for the term, as well as the Freshers’ Week Schedule (http://mcr.chu.cam.ac.uk/activities/calendar-2/). Speaking of which, some new Freshers may have arrived already, so please join me in extending a warm welcome to them!

Thank you to those who provided feedback on MCR refurbishments earlier this year.  We now have a newly installed kitchenette, and some additional works are in plan as well. So, please bear with the MCR for the time being until everything is sorted out.

As always, feel free to get in touch with anyone on the committee should you have any queries or concerns about college life. Corresponding email addresses can be found on this MCR website.

College survey and council minutes

The academic year has come to an end, and the MCR committee would like to wish you a wonderful summer.

As part of an end-of-the-year student survey, could you please complete the following survey on college services and accommodation? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated, as it helps us bring your comments/concerns back to college’s governing committees. Please complete it before July 31st.

An action point resulting from last year’s accommodation survey was to increase transparency for students, and this is now done by making College Council minutes available on the internet. For further details, please visit https://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/internal/councilminutes/ – Raven login is required.

MCR Gazette / Easter Week 8

Hello everyone!

It’s hard to believe that the end of Easter term is upon us, but here we are. I hope you all have enjoyed this academic year – I know I sure have!

Around College this week, you can go cheer on our Boat Club in the May Bumps through to Saturday – we have four crews racing, in M1, W1, M2, and M3. Division times can be found at http://www.cucbc.org/mays/times.

In addition, this term’s MCR Guest Night is taking place this Sunday, June 15. As next week is May Week, there is a lot going on around Cambridge, including May Balls and garden parties, as well as some of the events below.

Hope it’s a good one, and have a lovely summer!

Alexis
