In elections last week, the JCR (Junior Common Room, our undergraduate student body) voted for Will Mason to become their next President. Will is a second year studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics, who is French-American and was raised in Cannes and New York. He will take over the presidency from Amelia Gabaldoni at the start of next term.

Whilst at Oxford, Will has been involved in the Teddy Hall football and rugby clubs as well as with a University-wide drama society. “I decided to run for JCR President,” he explained, “because I was a big fan of all of the events and activities that go on at the Hall and I wanted to play a bigger role in organising and shaping them. The community spirit that is fostered at these events and more generally in the day-to-day interactions in college is what I like most about the Hall, and what I hope to encourage as much as possible in my role as president.”

“I want to make sure as many people as possible feel included in the Teddy Hall community,” he added, “because it truly is a wonderful place and everyone deserves to feel at home here.”

Other newly-elected members of the JCR Committee are:

  • Academic Affairs and Careers Officer – Lavanya Ganatra
  • Access Officers – Jacob Kearney and Esme Sanders
  • Charities Officer – Freddy Leo
  • Female Welfare Officer – Katie Dent
  • Gender and Sexual Diversity Officer – Simon Upton
  • Male Welfare Officer – Will Ainsworth
  • Social Secretary – Alex Swallow
  • Sports Officers – Emma Rosier and Dan Barley.
