Vice Senior Student: Conor McIvor (He/Him)
The Vice Senior Student is the deputy for the Senior Student, responsible for communication between the Executive committee and the JCR, and for the smooth administrative running of much of the JCR’s business. This includes the Standing Orders Committee, the JCR’s sports and societies funding committee, running the room ballot, and ensuring the election and selection of the following year’s executive committee. I also write a weekly newsletter to keep you updated with everything going on around college.
(More information can be found in the Standing Orders, VI.7, p.10-11)
I’m Conor, this year’s Vice Senior Student. Outside of my exec role, I play Castle lacrosse and football, and also do Durham triathlon, so feel free to ask me about any sports. I’ve also been involved a lot in Castle Community Action which I thoroughly recommend as a great way to give back to Castle and the local community. You’ll probably find me just about anywhere in college trying to dodge the engineering department and filling my time with other things, so if you have any questions about time management and work-life balance then please ask! Likewise ask me about anything college related like elections and the standing orders.
Favourite Castle Memory: Castle Lacrosse York Varsity. There’s nothing better than trekking down to York on a sunny day and cracking open a few cans by the side of the pitch with your best mates, before smashing the other team 17-0 away from home. A pub lunch, a very merry coach ride home and an evening well spent in Spags topped off the day beautifully (for those that made it).
