Freshers’ guide 2014

Posted October 1st, 2014 by SBR Committee

Dear incoming Freshers,

Welcome to John’s and the SBR!  We’re really looking forward to meeting you over the next few weeks, and we hope you’re just as excited to be joining us!

To help you get here and settle in, we’ve compiled a guide (2014 SBR Freshers’ Guide) with information on everything from getting to John’s to life in your new college and city.  To those of you staying on after an undergrad, you’ll still find some useful information about making the transition from the JCR to SBR.  You can also check our previous posts with the fresher’s fortnight timetable and new termcard to learn about the upcoming SBR events.

And like our Facebook page to get notifications!

See you all soon!

Freshers fortnight timetable!

Posted September 29th, 2014 by SBR Committee

Hi everybody,

The freshers fortnight timetable is here:

For new and old graduates – changes/updates will be posted on our new Facebook page, so do ‘like’:

Finally – the SBR got some TLC over summer… As well as updating the kitchen (coffee machine a personal fav), we have a new cinema system (soon to include Netflix), re-kitted the Wii, got bluetooth for the pool room speakers, bought new board games, and started subscriptions to the following mags (for the new wall-mounted cases):

Sight and Sound
National Geographic
…Old favourites like LRB, New Yorker, McSweeney’s, Paris Review, Granta are still here :)

Drop by, have a coffee and biscuit, and check it all out.

Looking forward to seeing you in freshers fortnight.

With best sbr-presidential wishes,
