Presidential Epistle – Week 9 – The Beat goes on

Dear Cornflakes!

As a graduate college, we have a different connection with Oxford’s eight-week terms: our seminars may end but our work does not! With this in mind, the MCR will be continuing some of our regular events between Hilary and Trinity terms. We will also be having a number of special events, including a screening of the Boat Race on 24 March. Things are also heating up for the Garden of Earthly Delights Kellogg Ball on June 16. Stay tuned for ticket news.

Bookings for the first Guest Night Dinners of Trinity Term will open tomorrow on Tuesday, 13 March. Bookings for the remaining 4 dinners will open on Tuesday, 3 April. PLEASE NOTE: The booking procedure will be different this term, with bookings made through an online form.

A reminder that the last Informal Dinner will take place this Friday, 16 March. Lunches continue for another week until 23 March. College offices will be closed between 29 March to 2 April, inclusive.

Hope to see you at college soon!
Claire Macht
Your MCR President 2017/2018

External Events and opportunities
Psychology study: Predicting other people’s performance
We are looking to recruit participants aged 18-45 for our research study on factors influencing predictions about other people’s performance. The study involves a computer task that assesses your speed and accuracy. It takes under 30 minutes and you will be compensated for your time. Additionally, you will get a chance to win a chocolate bar.

The study involves completing a computer task, questionnaire and may involve mildly painful electric shocks. It takes 30 minutes and you will be compensated for your time.

To take part, you must be in good health and fluent in English. Because of the nature of the study, people with neurological or psychiatric history, including depression or anxiety (past or present) will NOT be able to take part. Testing takes place at Keble College, Oxford OX1 3PG.

If you wish to participate in this study or to receive further information, please contact Luka Katic at .
