Microsoft Office (and new committee members)

by Bruce Collie

New build

In my role as Webmaster I feel somewhat obligated to remind you all that you are all entitled to a copy of Microsoft Office for free now – the uptake so far has been somewhat low, but this is a useful opportunity that I’m sure at least some of you will take advantage of. Instructions are here, and if you have any issues please submit a service request to IT at http://service.trinhall.cam.ac.uk/.

In other less exciting, non computer-related news, we enter a new presidential era as we welcome new committee members:

  • PRESIDENT: Sam Pulman-Slater
  • MALE WELFARE: Dominic O’Neill
  • ENTS: David Powell & Sam Slattery
  • TREASURER: Veer Goiporia

Thanks to all the committee members leaving us – you’ve all been great.

Finally, thanks to some great work by our access officer Mary, we now have some brand new student profiles online – if you’re a prospective student be sure to check them out here.

New Freps

Today is the debut committee meeting for our three new freps – we’d like to welcome James, Eric and Tian to the fold. If any freshers have any concerns / questions / comments etc. please get in touch with them. You can reach them at:

  • JAMES COE (jjc71)
  • ERIC DALE (ed462)
  • TIAN CHAN (tc471)

We’d also like to thank Jennie, Dom and Catriona for their year of fantastic work on the committee.

You can find the updated committee page here.

Welcome Freshers!

Master's Lodge

 

In my role as Webmaster I’d like to welcome you all to Trinity Hall on behalf of the whole JCR committee. Freshers’ Week can be a pretty hectic time, but the committee is there to help you settle in and enjoy yourselves as much as possible. You can find out about us on the committee page.

I try to keep the website as up to date as possible, and a good place to start is the Freshers section – you’ll find lots of useful information about college life here. Another important page is the immortal guide to college IT, How To Internet Really Good. This guide should be your first point of call if you have problems with computers or the internet. Failing that, I’ll be around in Freshers Week to help with computer issues.

See you soon!

You can find contact details for all the committee members on our handy page here.

So much democracy

by Oli Lane

CUSU election pagebanner 2015

We weren’t content with the 12 JCR Committee positions currently up for grabs, so we’ve arranged for CUSU to open nominations for their 2015 roles too! Just for you. Honest.

It’s a great opportunity to get involved, so have a look if any of the roles look right for you. Voting opens on March 2nd.

More info here.

New committee members

Wychfield model

Congratulations to our new (and recycled) committee members, James Troup, Kate Jones and Martin Dunne, who’ll be joining as the new President and Ents Presidents respectively! Charlie O’Neill was elected as the new treasurer, and will start his new post in 6 weeks after a changeover period.

A fond farewell and many thanks to Ellen, Hux and Lizzie for a great year — it’s been real.

Voting re-opens tomorrow

by Oli Lane

CUSU have fixed the issues which caused Monday’s election to be postponed, and the vote will restart tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9am. This link will take you to the secure voting page, and you can visit before the vote opens to check you’re on the electoral roll and eligible to vote.

Unfortunately votes from Monday will not be counted, so if you’ve voted already, please VOTE AGAIN tomorrow. Vote counts will be released at 6pm, and subsequently verified by the Vice President before the official result is announced.

Thanks for bearing with us :)
