Presidential Epistle – Week 9

Dear Special K-sters,

Term maybe be over but one of the joys of being a grad student is that term is never really over. And so, this week continues to offer sports, academics, and socials galore! Some good things do come to an end however. Informal dinners are finished for 2017. Lunches continue until December 14. Thanks to the wonderful kitchen and dining staff again for the wonderful dishes we have been delighted with this term.

Don’t miss out on the dinner delights of Hilary Term though! Bookings for Guest Night Dinners opens tomorrow, December 4.

It was a pleasure to meet some of the MSt in Historical Studies students tonight at Rewley House: best of luck with the upcoming submissions!

Your MCR President,

Claire
