Unions and Societies Officer: Henry Miller (He/Him)
The USO is primarily responsible for the day to day running of the clubs and societies within Castle, including financing and promoting teams and events that they put on, and running student-led events such as Castle-Hatfield Day, Give it a Go week and the College Festival of Sport. The USO is also the link between Castle and university-wide institutions, such as Team Durham, Experience Durham and the Durham Students’ Union (DSU).

I’m Henry, I’m a 3rd year Maths student and I’m the Unions and Societies Officer for this academic year. Whilst not struggling over maths problems I enjoy rowing for college and playing the cello in Castle Chamber Orchestra and in Music Durham ensembles. My favourite memories in Castle have been competing in rowing regattas against other colleges, cheering on my Castle team mates, and coming together for an amazing social afterwards! We have a wide variety of opportunities within college and I really encourage everyone to get involved, whether you have prior experience or are a complete beginner in a sport, or you would like to join a close-knit community through one of many other societies we have to offer with Castle JCR.
If you have any questions about any of the above, or anything at all, feel free to get in touch via Facebook, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
