permalink: http://www.dur.ac.uk/grey.jcr/blogs/viewBlog.php?id=12&pId=234 Alternative Handbook Representatives
This coming Sunday at the JCR meeting there are going to be elections for Alternative Handbook Representatives.
This is a great chance to get involved with the writing, editing and formatting of the Alternative Handbook which is sent out in the summer to all Freshers’ before they come to Grey. Here is the link to last year’s handbook (http://www.dur.ac.uk/grey.jcr/applicants/handbook.php).
It includes information and articles about college life, food, accommodation, social life, nights out, information about other colleges, sports, societies and committees. There is also a chance to write about other things such as what to bring to uni, a guide to fancy dress, a guide to Durham slang, FAQs, do’s and don’t’s of Freshers week, things we wish we knew before we arrived. Any new ideas would also be welcome!!!
Being an Alternative Handbook Representative won’t take up too much of your time and you can choose the extent to which you are involved.
If you are interested in writing, photography, design or editing and want to get involved all you will need to do is come to the JCR meeting, stand up and say why you want to do it. There is going to be no limit as to how many Representatives we have so bring your friends along as the more we have the better it will be!
If anyone has any questions or wants to know more just get in touch!
