Hello! 

I’m Tippy and I will be the Ball Chair this year. I act as President of the Ents and June Ball committees to ensure that Castle’s three largest events run smoothly.

I study English and Philosophy. I joined the Ents and JB committees in my first year, and it has been an incredible opportunity to meet people and contribute to Castle life. I also rowed for the women’s novice team in first year and am now on the Security Committee. I’m from Tennessee, and I live in NY.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email or knock on my door! I’m castle.ballchair@durham.ac.uk and my room is N21.
