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.

Woosta Sauce Editor
Greetings to one and all, I’m Oli and I edit the College newspaper, which is called the Woosta Source (g00d chat amirite). It’s essentially a vehicle for people to take the piss out of themselves, their friends and life at Worcester and Oxford generally, so if you back yourself as being quite jokes then please don’t hesitate to send over whatever you can come up with! Also if you hear about some good college gossip then do lob it over to the Peeking Duck so it features in the informative and innovative gossip column. The more stuff I get sent the more often I can publish the Source (hopefully 3-4 times a term) and the less full of my rather risqué drivel it will be. LeT’s GeT sOuRcEy
