MCR Announcements

Here are several items that may be important to you.

1. The Small Grants Committee has met to go through received applications, and applicants should be receiving replies soon. Please bear in mind that you can only be awarded once per academic year. For those who require additional financial support for their sports expenses, consider applying to the Hawks’ Charitable Trust – the closing date is Feb 13, 2015 for the 2014-15 academic year ( If you are unsure or would like to know more about additional funding options available in college, please feel free to ask me.

2. Are you a captain/president of a college team/society? Churchill college clubs and societies are encouraged to update their college webpages using the online form here: This would then be sent off to college’s webmaster.

3. Surveys
a. For those who participated – or chose not to participate – in Freshers’ week events, please fill out the anonymous MCR Welfare Survey and let us know what you think! It’s the perfect opportunity for us to get feedback and to improve welfare services.

Link has been emailed out.

b. Please fill out the Student Satisfaction Survey (distributed by the Domestic Bursar) so that college can assess which areas of student services they should keep/need to improve on. Your feedback is extremely crucial and will remain confidential.

In the meantime, feel free to email the returning officers, Alexis (mcr-secretary@chu) or me (mcr-president@chu) if you have questions about the above positions.
