Social Chair

Social Chair: Rachel Burgin

The Social Chair is responsible for the running of all small to medium sized events, excluding balls, in college. This includes all the events during freshers week and freshtival, as well as hounds, castle day and Bierfest. It is also the social chairman’s job to help facilitate all other events in college which include CCFS (castle charity fashion show), arts week and any events run by the CCA.

The Social chair leads a small team of around 8 people to help with the aesthetics, entertainment and administration of the events. Being part of the team is an opportunity to help organise some of the best events of the year.

Hi!
I’m Rachel, your Social Chair for 2021-22. I am a third year studying Chemistry.
As Social Chair I am responsible for organising most of the social events in College apart from our balls which are undertaken by our Ball Chair. These include all events during Freshers week, as well as Bierfest, Castle Day, and hounds (club nights in the Undie).
I have a small team of people to help organise these events called the Ents Committee. If you want to get involved with this just let me know.
If you have any questions feel free to email me at castle.socialchair@durham.ac.uk
