I first became a part of John Snow College as an Undergraduate and was immediately struck by the friendly, supportive, and encouraging nature of staff and students alike. When I decided to undertake postgraduate study, there was never any doubt that I would remain a member of the John Snow ‘family’. As the first Postgraduate Representative of John Snow College, I have had the opportunity to provide an additional level of support to our Postgraduate students through weekly ‘drop-in’ sessions, where minor issues or concerns may be discussed in an informal context. Our regular Scholars’ Suppers, which often feature guest speakers, are highly popular and enjoyable events, which are attended by postgraduates of both John Snow and Stephenson College. Our postgraduates also have the opportunity to attend Inter-MCR formals at colleges located in Durham, most recently at St Chad’s, Grey, and University College. Not only is this a great way to meet fellow Postgraduate students from other colleges, but these events are a lot of fun! My time in John Snow College, particularly as their Postgraduate Representative, has been a thoroughly enjoyable and enriching experience for which I am truly grateful; I will be genuinely sorry to leave when I complete my degree.
