Freshers’ First Visit to College
Pembroke College has recently hosted tours for its 2021 undergraduate freshers. We are delighted that we were able to hold these one-off tours in person for 60 future Pembrokians. All the students in attendance were visiting college for the first time after experiencing Open Days and interviews virtually.
Celebrating Success: Chimdinma Okpalauko
Chimdinma Okpalauko (2020, Theology and Religion) has recently achieved high marks in her prelims exams and was appointed Vice-President of the Oxford Afro-Caribbean Society. We caught up with Chimdi, who shared her advice for prospective students as well as her plans for the future.
MCR Elects New Committee
As recently announced by former MCR president Hannah McIntyre, the Pembroke MCR have elected a new committee, in preparation for the 2021-22 academic year. The hustings for the new committee took place virtually in late May, and the new committee will begin with immediate effect, serving until Week 6 of Michaelmas Term 2021, and overseeing MCR Freshers Week and the welcoming of new MCR students.
New MCR President Benjamin Breant expressed gratitude to those who were leaving their roles, particularly to long serving members, saying; “On behalf of the new committee, I would like to thank everyone who served in the previous committee. Some of you were on committee since you started your degree well before we arrived, and now is the time for you to hand over this brilliant community you helped build and maintain. I want to promise you the MCR is in good hands, and we will all work together to ensure our community remains one of the best (if not the best) in Oxford.
We have quite a summer to come, lightened by the hope of a somewhat normal Michaelmas, and we are all looking forward to keeping our community warm and inclusive and to give you the best experience you can hope from an Oxford MCR.”
The Election results are as follows:
BENJAMIN BREANT - President
ROHAN WATT - Vice President
KATHRYN WHITE - Social Secretary, Access Officer
TSVETOMIRA DUMBALSKA - Welfare Officer, Web Officer
PANARAT ROHLEDER - Academic Officer, Women's Rep
