Julia and Jan for International Officer 2011/12 Hi internationals, We are Julia and Jan from Germany and jointly run for the position of international officer. We are both 2nd years reading Natural Sciences and Mathematics respectively. After enjoying Sidney for one and a half years, we would like to give something back to the community by committing ourselves to the position of international officer.

What we will do Fresher’s week  Contact internationals before arrival at Sidney: explaining specifics of Cambridge culture (Black tie, gown and the university system) and giving advice on mobile phone contracts and setting up bank accounts  organise social activities before fresher’s week: e.g. watching a movie, going out for dinner  pick up people from the train/bus station  help internationals during fresher’s week: form filling, acting as advisory contacts  arrange drop-in sessions: we offer first-aid cookies and tea for homesickness! International Storage room  Improve accessibility of the international storage room, i.e. more time slots to store your boxes, access on weekends Swaps  organising college swaps: you want to attend formal at every single college before graduating, don’t you?  iCUSU formals: we want to advertise the iCUSU formals among Sidney internationals

Why we are the right people for this position  Since we run for a shared position we will have more time for our job than a single person  Since we have different personalities and study different subjects we can cover a broad scope of different tasks. We both have experience as successful organisers of events from our positions as SciSoc publicity officer, Allen Society president and Wilson society secretary

We are approachable and enthusiastic

Julia & Jan
