Junior Common Room (Students’ Club) Activities
The House Committee
The House Committee is democratically elected by members of the Students’ Club at the end of the preceding academic year.
In October 2020, the Students’ Club Annual Elections were held to determine the 2021 House Committee. This is the 118th year in which College has hosted a Student Committee election.
The first instance of online voting took place in 2019. Voting had also previously changed in 2018, with nominations to allow a 40/40/20 split in elections. This split was to represent 40% women/40% men/20% leadership roles (gender indiscriminate).
Where previously, individuals were elected for specific positions, they are now voted onto the committee and then placed into roles in consultation with their fellow House Committee members.
This system worked as expected; College was pleased to welcome a group of fine young women and men in equal numbers to leadership positions in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
