Don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any issues or ideas or good Netflix series recommendations.

Hiya I’m Hetty and I’m the Entz Rep. Entz means entertainment and events, so essentially I organise what college events are going to happen each term and then put them on. Each term me and the team run 3 BOPs (fancy dress nights in the college bar), a ‘pink drinks’, and a black tie event among others. At the end of the year we also throw a big garden party with Pimm’s and inflatables like bungee runs. I also make sure you all know what other fun things are going on, in college and out of it. Worcester events are really fun and well attended so make sure to come along!
Hello friends, I’m Jack and I’m the Entz Sec. My role is fairly chill, mainly focusing around liaising with clubs; so securing wristbands and discounts for the college after events. I also deal with ticketing for the stuff put on by the Entz team. I have a role in trying to raise funds for the JCR Entz budget, this coming mainly from clubs sending money back to us when we send students their way. Worcester events are jokes, particularly bops and pink drinks (both of which get super loose), so get involved and we shall welcome you into our hearts.
Hi I’m Jess and I’m the Entz Treasurer. So my job is to manage the money for all of the college Entz events. I’ll be sorting out ticket prices and managing the budget so we can put on as much as possible for you throughout the year. I’ll also be generally running around supporting the Entz Team. There’s a great mix of events, so do get involved, we can’t wait to see you there!
Hey! I’m Reuben and am the JCR sports rep. My role involves managing the sports budget, organising sporting events throughout the year and giving as many people as possible the opportunity to participate in sport here.

Keep a look out during fresher’s week for lots of sporting events! If you have any questions about sport at Worcester or in the university don’t hesitate to get in contact. I look forward to seeing you all in October!
Hey! I’m Gabby, your JCR Arts Rep. My role is to organise creative events covering a wide range of arts to make sure there are plenty of opportunities to show off all the talent Worcester students have to offer. For example, in Trinity term I organised a big live music festival ‘Worc in the Park’ on Nuffield lawn, which included performances from wide range of Oxford based ensembles alongside lots of Pimms and cake. There will be plenty more arts related activities coming up this year, including open Mic nights, art exhibitions, creative sessions and showcases.

Oxford can be daunting, but I’ll always be available for a chat, no matter how big or small the issue.

For some of you it will be your first days in England and having studied here for a while now I’m really happy to share my knowledge and experience as well as help you sort out any issues arising from moving to a new country – from getting an English SIM card to cheering you up if you ever feel homesick. Throughout the year I’ll be organizing some fun events for both international and home students, which hopefully will allow us to learn more about each other’s countries and cultures. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about life as an international student in Oxford or maybe suggestions about events you’d love to see happening at Worcester.
