Hi, I'm Hannah and I'm going into my 3rd year studying Classics at Trinity. This year I am excited to be taking on the role of JCR secretary and am looking forward to working with my peers to improve student life. I have been involved in college sport throughout the last two years, and also play the flute in the college orchestra. I am extremely passionate about Classics and about widening access to the subject by encouraging more state school applications. I am excited to talk to Old Members about their experiences studying at Trinity and also what they have been up to since!
I am studying Classics. I am a keen musician, having played the violin since I was seven, but my true love is the guitar, for which I love to write songs. I am passionate about the environmental and energy issues which the world is facing, and I’ve been pleased to see the steps the college is taking to reduce its footprint, such as the ‘Meat-free Thursdays’. I look forward to talking to Old Members about their lives after Trinity!
Hi, my name is Catriona and I am a second year student at Trinity. I am studying Spanish and Linguistics, a degree that combines my passion for languages and a love of reading. I have fallen in love with Trinity during my first year, primarily because of the welcoming students, tutors and staff, and am excited to have the opportunity to talk to Trinity Old Members during this campaign. I am involved in a range of activities in college such as the Trinity college chapel choir and the Trinity netball team, for which I am joint captain this year.
I am a final year student studying French and Spanish. During my time at Trinity so far I have been involved in college rowing and drama. In my second year, I was boat club secretary and won blades in both Torpids and Eights. My drama interests included a foray into college cuppers, performing in an improvisation troupe and—during my year abroad at a school in Mexico—choreographing a 100-strong production of Grease! I also enjoy creative writing in my spare time and won Trinity's Richard Hillary prize earlier this year.
I’m Owain James and I’m a 2nd year DPhil theology student. As the name suggests, I’m Welsh! I was raised and educated through the Welsh language until I ventured over the Severn Bridge to study History at the University of Exeter. I came to Oxford to study at post-graduate level in 2015, and I have been here ever since! My research focuses on early Christian ideas about magic, demons, death and the afterlife. I am an active member in the postgraduate community at Trinity College, and I am currently serving as the Vice-president and Welfare Officer for the MCR Committee.
My name is Nick Kenny, I am an undergraduate currently going into my fourth year studying Classics. I am a member of the chapel choir, and have performed with the Trinity orchestra. I have also played frequently at the termly President’s Concerts, performing mostly on the Trinity set of Northumbrian pipes, for which I’ve composed and performed several pieces of my own. In my second year I also took part in the Trinity Lawns Play, playing a minor role in Much Ado about Nothing. Outside of college, I help run the university ukulele band.
My name is Ves, I come from Belgrade, Serbia and I am a second year physics student at Trinity College. Apart from my degree I am interested in music, particularly metal and jazz sub-genres, and fiction literature, such as Tolkien's or Lovecraft's works. I am very excited to take part in this year's telephone campaign and thus contribute to the college as much as I can.
Hi I'm Tom and I study History and Politics and am about to go into my second year of study. Outside of academic work I really enjoy engaging in college sport and have just been elected Captain of Trinity College Boat Club. Rowing at Trinity is fantastic as people join at varying levels of experience and is an inclusive and friendly club. In my free time I also enjoy playing football and it has allowed me to make friends across year groups in college and make me feel very welcome.
I am from Cardiff and am entering my second year studying Economics & Management. At Trinity I have been able to take up mixed lacrosse and continue playing squash and rugby for the college teams. My favourite experience has been playing in the Old Boys rugby match.
Hi, my name is Henry Tan and I’m a third-year Mathematics student. I’m originally from Wimborne in Dorset and after coming to visit for an open day I knew Trinity’s beautiful buildings and welcoming feel were perfect for me. Throughout my time here I’ve been a member of the University tennis fourths and was Trinity’s tennis captain last year. I am also a member of College’s Orchestra - playing the French Horn - and have in the past played for the OU Philharmonia. After this year I hope to continue my studies and complete my Masters here also.
Hi, I’m Tobi. I’m from North London and I’m about to start my second year studying Philosophy and Theology here at Trinity. While at Oxford, I have been involved in student media - I’m currently a deputy editor of the ISIS magazine and the Profiles editor of The Oxford Student, covering politics, arts and culture. I am also a co-director of Common Ground, a student initiative which seeks to address Oxford’s present day inequalities through panels, talks, and workshops. In my spare time I enjoy going to gigs and film-screenings, and keeping up with UK, US, and South American politics.
My name is Ellie and I’m about to go into my second year studying History and German. My interests academically are predominantly focussed on 20th century history and modern literature. I am involved in college netball and rowing. Above all I am looking forward to being TCBC’s women’s rowing captain for the 2017-8 season, having started rowing as a novice this time last year. I am very interested in politics, film and contemporary literature. I also enjoy travelling so am excited about organising my third year abroad in the coming year.
I am Jamie, from Durham and am about to begin my third year reading chemistry. I’m an active member of the JCR and have devoted time to working on access and admissions events, such as showing prospective applicants our beautiful college and visiting schools to talk about the experience offered by the university. I help with logistical organisation at one of Oxford’s largest student volunteering groups working with the homeless, elderly and vulnerable. I am doing the telethon because I want to ensure that others can benefit from the experiences I have had at Trinity in the years to come.
