University Societies Opportunity

Nominations are sought for membership of the Technical Committee of the Societies Syndicate.

The Technical Committee meets twice a term and considers applications for financial support from Clubs and Societies. The Junior Proctor chairs the Committee. Membership includes twelve members of the University in statu pupillari, one appointed by each of twelve societies.

The person nominated by your society should, ideally, have some knowledge of the workings of clubs and societies, and particularly their financial arrangements, but neither is essential. The junior members on the Committee do not represent their society as such, but ensure that the composition of the Committee reflects the range of societies eligible for financial assistance from the Syndicate, and members generally find their year’s service enjoyable and interesting.

The first of next year’s meetings is due to take place on 30 October 2018. We therefore ask that nominations be sent to societiessyndicate@admin.cam.ac.uk by Monday 8 October 2018.

 

This is an opportunity for your members to gain experience of serving on a University committee, whilst also playing a useful role supporting the work of student clubs and societies.

A note from the University Basketball team:

College basketball offers the opportunity to play sport in a low pressure, sociable environment. Whether you’ve never touched a basketball before in your life, or you’ve played for years, we want to provide a space where you can come down, learn some new skills and meet some great women and non-binary people.

A new system of College league competition has been established for the 2018-19 season, which will provide opportunities for player development in the Michaelmas term, and a 3×3 or 5×5 league in Lent term (this will depend on player numbers).

We will be running training sessions every Saturday of Michaelmas term from 9:45-11am at the Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre, coached by players from the University Women’s teams. These are open to all women + non-binary students in Cambridge and we would like to encourage people who have never played before to come and give it a try. The sessions will have a small fee to cover the court rental, payable on site per session. We encourage all those coming down to play regularly to look into funding available in your college to support participation in sport.

and bake sales. If you’re interested please email yg321@cam.ac.uk no later than Wednesday 17th October

Inside Uni

Hey everyone!
This non-profit, student led project aims to make the Cambridge application more transparent for everyone. Ultimately, we want to make sure all prospective students can approach the application with the same information.
We’re building a free website (http://insideuni.org) to bring together crowd-sourced student advice on interviews, application preparation, colleges, scholarships and existing access schemes. There’s tons of great stuff out there so we want to help the students who need it find it (and make sure they don’t have to resort to unreliable online forums for advice).
The project is growingly rapidly every week – every student on this page is part of the journey so we’ll keep you posted on progress.
Any ideas? Want to learn more? Just fancy saying hello? Reach out anytime and drop us a message
