Welcome all! :) My name is Marc Owen Jones, and I am doing my PhD on political Repression in Bahrain. I've also been in Durham for longer than you can shake a stick at. Hobbies include drinking tea, irreverence and misusing common idioms, such as 'shake a stick at'. Other hobbies include Ustinov. It's a wonderful place see. I find the friendly, diverse and engaging community unique, and I am sure this year will be one that will etch itself into your memories, so long as we both shall live. At least I hope so. Make sure to make the most of it, and please swing by the office for a chinwag. My other habitat includes the cafe, so do pop in and say hello! Really can't wait to meet you all!
This website is the core repository of information for the GCR, here you can find information about the GCR Committee, advice about Welfare, browse the DVD Library and so much more. You can even find out about our Clubs & Societies, including information about starting your own society. If you're not sure where to find what you're looking for, why not have a look under Frequently Asked Questions?
The quality of life at Ustinov relies heavily upon student participation and involvement.So why not get involved: look out for coming elections where you could run for a vacant committee position or join a society/club or just keep updated and come along to the GCR events and activities. Whether you run for a GCR position, join a sports team, or frequent the bar and coffee shop, you're contributing to the Ustinov experience!
