From the 11th to the 19th of May, the college will be out of the first Quiet Period of Easter Term. The second Quiet Period will commence on the 20th of May until 14th of June, midday.
Please be aware that from now on until the final exams on the 14th of June, many students will be studying and working hard so please keep the noise levels to a minimum and be respectful of others.
The JCR Committee will be holding an Open Meeting on Monday 25th February at 18:45 in the Bar, which will be open to all members of the JCR. The JCR Committee would like to carry out reform of QEnts in order to improve transparency, accessibility and accountability, in addition to seeking to reassure college that bops will be well-managed going forwards.
The official agenda contains one motion, and can be found here.
If you are interested in the future of bops and QEnts, we would urge you to attend. The constitution gives full details of procedure and can be found here.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Under Will Oram’s express sanction, I have started a VP External blog where I will post my summaries of the goings-on of CUSU and other aspects of student politics outside of Queens’.
This will be a supplement to my email list, which you can subscribe to by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The blog is called ‘There is more to Cambridge than Queens’. Long, I know, but it sums up what I want its message to be.
It is on Blogger. Apparently that is not the blog-publishing medium of choice according to my roomie.
The link is here -> thereismoretocambridgethanqueens.blogspot.co.uk
In due course I will upload my first two CUSU ‘low-downs’
Hope you enjoy,
