University College has a large range of societies, most of them run by members of the J.C.R.. Whether you are interested in sports, music or anything in between there should be something available for you; if not, create it! Details for some of the societies are available over on the J.C.R. web pages.
In addition to the societies run by the J.C.R., the M.C.R. offers some up and coming societies of its own, details for which can be found below.
M.C.R. Croquet Club
The M.C.R. Croquet team is in need of a new Captain this year, to utilise our Jacques croquet set. Regular games against other common rooms and colleges will be held throughout the year, culminating in a summer tournament. In addition, casual and practice sessions will be run on a regular basis, in which people of any skill level are welcome to participate. If interested, contact email@example.com to join, request more details, or even offer your services as Captain!
University College Read and Weed (UCRAW)
Not what it sounds like! This is the historic name for Castle M.C.R.'s cultural and academic society, which dates back to the '50s (when the weed in question was pipe tobacco). Throughout the year, this society will host poetry readings, academic talks from members of the S.C.R. and M.C.R., visits from local and national authors, and visits to the Gala cinema and theatre. There should also be regular cultural salons, along with wine, port and sherry tastings. The Modern Read & Weed is a Castle-wide society, and members from all common rooms may attend any events they so wish. To find out more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
University College Inter-Common Room Society (UCIRS)
This society exists to promote good inter-common room relations through port (on occasion vintage) and locally-sourced cheese at receptions after Thursday formals. The intention is for these to be held every fortnight, although they may be more or less frequent depending on circumstances. All members of the M.C.R. who dine on a Thursday, when these receptions occur, are entitled to attend and mingle with a number of J.C.R. and S.C.R. members for no extra cost.
For more information, contact Andrew Chambers-Barratt (email@example.com) The M.C.R. will also be looking for a new Postgraduate representative this year. To enquire about the role, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
M.C.R. Supper Club
This is an informal club that exists to arrange supper and dinner parties at M.C.R. members' homes throughout the year. If anyone is interested in overseeing this society, they would be most welcome to do so - simply email Greg Carter.
