My name’s Ana, and I’m your JCR President for 2016-2017! I’m a second year Economics & Management student, originally from Bulgaria, though I’ve moved around Europe and I feel most at home at St Hugh’s with my second family. My job is to represent and support all members of the JCR so please let me know via Facebook message, email or by stopping me in the corridors of Hugh’s (I promise I won’t mind), whatever’s easiest to let me know if you have a JCR-related questions, concern or suggestion!

Below is a summary of my role:

JCR Committee Meetings
Every week, I chair the meeting of the (democratically elected by you!) JCR committee. We discuss the pressing issues facing our common room and report on the various initiatives being worked on by each officer. Please feel free to contact me if there is anything that you wish to be discussed in these meetings.

Every other week we also hold a general JCR meeting which we encourage everyone to attend. This is the forum where many of the real decisions are made; you can approve or reject the proposals of the committee as you see fit, as well as submitting motions yourself on any JCR-related matter. Please come to have your voice heard and also to enjoy the free food because who turns down free pizza?

JCR Emails
I receive emails from companies, Oxford societies and a huge host of others throughout the week. Twice a week (on Sundays and Wednesdays) I send out an email to the JCR body with details about these opportunities and information about the week ahead so do read through to see if there is anything that is relevant to you!

Every other week I go to Prescom, a meeting of all the JCR Presidents from across Oxford, where we discuss University-wide initiatives and exchange ideas about how best to run the JCR. This connects the college closely to university life and helps me discover ways we can improve our own JCR.

OUSU Council
This is basically an Oxford University-wide JCR meeting. The JCR Secretary and I attend this once every two weeks to exercise two of St Hugh’s’ three votes on the council. University wide student matters are discussed and voted upon. If you’re interested in being the 3rd vote from St Hugh’s, please do get in touch!

College Committee Meetings
As JCR president, I sit on a number of college committees such as Finance, Equality, Academic, IT and Governing Body. This means that decisions are always made with a JCR voice at hand and that the interests of the JCR are represented at the highest levels.

I also receive posters and other advertising in my pidge, which will then be transferred to the notice boards.

I’m very excited to hear from you so please don’t hesitate to contact me (or another member of the committee) if you need help/are angry about something/think something can be done better. There are lots of routes that the JCR can use to resolve problems and raise concerns – and we are dedicated to doing just that!
