A Welcoming Message From Zara Finn - JCR President 2019/20
Welcome to Trinity Halls! You guys have worked incredibly hard to get here, so a congratulations is most certainly in order. You can say goodbye to those days of sraith pictiúrs and project maths, and hello to your new life as a student in Trinity College.
This year will be the start of the new chapter in all of your lives, and hopefully it will be an unforgettable start to an amazing few years you all have ahead of you. It can be tough at the start, living away from home, learning new life skills and becoming independent but look around you – you’re doing it in one of the greatest cities in the world!
Here in Trinity Halls we have an amazing team of 11 students who will help you make the most of this year – we are your JCR!
We all lived in Halls last year, and loved it so much that we are back again! Basically our job is to make sure you get the most out of this year, and maintain a balance between social life and your academics – because ultimately, you all worked incredibly hard to study the course of your dreams. The JCR – Junior Common Room – is one of the most active societies in Trinity, and we are delighted to welcome you all as members. We organise massive events throughout the year, from Fresher’s Weekend, Hall(s)oween, Hall Ball, Deck The Halls, The International Trip and many more.
The first few weeks of college can be the toughest but the most important too, so we’ll help you kick start settling into college life by organising events such as Life Skills Workshops, Consent Workshops and Speed Friending.
And so I introduce to you, your JCR for 2019/2020 (click on their luvly faces to find out more about them!)
So sin é lads, we are your JCR for 2019/2020. The main purpose of the JCR is to be here for you, the residents of Halls. You’re entering one of the most exciting times of your lives. At first it can be daunting, but I can assure you, that you will make friends for life and memories to last a lifetime here in Trinity Halls. My advice would be to make the most of it, take absolutely nothing for granted and really immerse yourself into college life – there’s more to Trinity than just the sesh… although that’s part of it too! Your time here in Trinity Halls will fly, so enjoy every bit of it while it lasts. There are no “do-overs” when it comes to experience, but only you can decide to exert every opportunity that comes to the fore this year. If you need advice, help or just a chat, come find any JCR member – we won’t bite! I’m always around and will never say no to a cuppa so don’t forget that!
And so let your journey begin – welcome to Trinity Hall.
Your JCR loves you x x
