Hi everyone! I am Jieyi, your social officer. My main role is to arrange formal swaps with other colleges so you can break out of the Sidney bubble and get to know people across the university. I am part of the team responsible for organising social events for the MCR and I hope to make your Cambridge experience as fun as possible. Feel free to drop me an email (jk655@cam.ac.uk) with any questions you have about swaps or any general information about the college!

Filip is a student in the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit and Günther is undertaking Part III mathematics.
As gym officers, their role includes liaising with college staff on gym issues such as: repairs to the gym equipment,
ordering new gym equipment, & mediating any gym related problems.

The second major role the gym officer is required to do is induct any new Sidney Sussex gym member. Before you can use the gym at Sidney Sussex, the college requires you to go through an induction; this is where Filip and Günther come in.
All throughout Freshers, Filip and Günther will be conducting gym induction for anyone who wishes to use the gym during their stay at Cambridge.

A few basic pointers to start off with: the Sidney Gym is only for College members, you need a clean pair of trainers every time you enter the gym, & you will need to exchange your room key for a gym key from the porters lodge every time.
Gym is on college site and everyone is super friendly!
