Project Access is a non-profit
student-led organisation, that aims to widen access to Cambridge and other top
universities for the most talented students from your home countries by
offering free mentorship to prospective applicants. Volunteering as a mentor is
a chance to offer the support you wish you had had when you applied to
Cambridge. The commitment is minimal – a few hours per year – but it is
incredibly satisfying and a great asset to your CV.

Sign up here: http://www.projectaccess.co/become-a-mentor/
!

We’re also looking for members of
Country Teams – especially right now launching Team UK. If you’re interested in
joining or starting a new Project Access team in Cambridge, let us know here: access@projectaccess.co
or email amk92@cam.ac.uk

The Radio 4 quiz show, which pits
undergraduates against academic staff, will be recorded live at St John’s on
February 9th. Students and staff are welcome to come along for the
recording and stay for a Q&A after the show.

Radio 4’s The
3rd Degree
, a quiz show which pits undergraduates against
academic staff and tests them on both general knowledge and their specialist
subjects, is coming to St John’s College on February 9th. Students
and staff can come along to support the students’ or Fellows’ team, and can
also stay on for a live Q&A with programme’s makers after the main event.

The recording will take place in the
Palmerston Room, with doors opening at 17.40. It is expected to finish at
around 19.20, and there will then be a live question and answer session with
the production team.

The event is completely free and there is
no need to book tickets, but spaces in the recording will be limited so please
arrive in good time if you would like to attend. The event is also open to
other students at the University of Cambridge.

St. John\’s LGBT+ Secret Facebook Group

Just a heads up that there is a secret St. John’s LGBT+ facebook group, for anyone who identifies as LGBT+ or questioning! If you’re not already in it and would like to be, send an email or a facebook message to Yasmine Shafiq (yeas2), the JCR Equal Opportunities LGBT+ Rep.

The group is secret, so nobody outside the group will be able to see that you’ve joined, but members of the group can see who else is a member. It’s currently the main way of communicating with the LGBT+ community at St. John’s, so it’s where event information etc all gets posted.

John’s Pink Week Hall

CAMBRIDGE PINK WEEK is coming to St John’s! On February 9th 2017 we will be holding a special PINK WEEK FORMAL HALL to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer care and research. 

PINK food, PINK wine, PINK decor and PINK fun are all guaranteed. PINK attire is also encouraged, because there is no such thing as too much PINK. 

Tickets can be purchased by St John’s students normally, via your UPay account (https://www.upaychilli.com/), and are the same price as regular hall tickets. 
However, given that this is a charity event, a small donation to the cause should be made via https://www.tilt.com/tilts/johns-pink-week-formal or at the door on the night.
