Executive Committee

RICHARD FREEMAN- PRESIDENT   Welcome to John Snow!  Congratulations for receiving a place at Durham University! You have all worked extremely hard to get here and I am sure that you are looking forward to making the most of the next three or four years you will spend here. I graduated in the summer of 2019 and was elected by the students within John Snow college to be the president of the Junior Common Room (JCR). My job is to oversee everything the JCR does, which includes 13 students also elected by their peers to run specific aspects of the JCR (that you'll see on this page!). My job is to express your views to the wider university and make sure that you're all happy and having the best student experience. If you have any questions at any point anyone (including myself) in the JCR will be happy to help!  University will be over before you know it. Remember to enjoy yourself, sign up for as many events, sports and societies as possible! Make the most of your time in John Snow and Durham University as possible - the next three or four years will fly by so get involved!
