Vice Senior Student

Vice Senior Student: Grace Calder

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)

Hi Everyone!

I’m Grace, this year’s Vice Senior Student. Usually ignoring my Geography degree, you can find me playing lacrosse badly, getting into my overdraft at Cafédral or leading Castle to victory for an unbeaten season of rounders. I’m also really involved in Castle Community Action – it’s one of the best things we offer as a college and I’d really recommend getting involved! Feel free to quiz me on the JCR standing orders or my world renowned quantitative system that gets you from Moatside to the science site for a 9am after an 8:55 alarm – pro tip, they actually start at 9:05. I can’t wait for this year and to be your VSS. We’ve got a lot of lost time to make up for in college, cheers Covid, and I’m really excited for everything ahead.
