Current exec members introduce themselves:
President, Ellie Milne-Brown
Vice-President, Rachel Robinson
Hi, I’m Rachel, a second year Lawyer and current JCR Vice-President. This is a new role that has been introduced this year, so I’m excited to develop it into one which aids the smooth running of the JCR. As well as assisting the other members of the Exec, one of my main roles will be to look at continuing to provide a platform for student voices within Exeter. If you have any problems or queries please do get in touch- I’d love to hear from you.
Treasurer, Edward Robertson
Hi, I’m Edward Robertson, I’m a first-year English lit student and Exeter’s current JCR Treasurer.
My most common job as treasurer is looking after the JCR accounts, by making sure the JCR stays on top of its finances and is keeping up with its payments. I also liaise with college on matters that affect Exeter’s undergraduates. This could be a large range of things, from rent price negotiations to the cost of the vending machines.
For my tenure as treasurer, I’ll be focussing on ensuring that all of our budgets are effectively spent, as well as improving the transparency of what the money we spend goes towards and how that benefits Exeter students. I’ll also be looking at how we support students from less fortunate backgrounds, ensuring that they get the most helpful and effective aid we can give.
Secretary, Celeste McGinley
Hello, I’m Celeste and I am the current JCR Secretary. As a first year lawyer (who is having the absolute best time studying constitutional law, and just loves a good constitution) it is my duty to uphold and interpret the JCR Constitution. My goal is to ensure the smooth running of the JCR and help with anything the exec needs assistance on. I am also responsible for all the admin stuff within the JCR and if you ever need to contact us as a unit, it will probably be me you liaise with.
If any JCR members have motions for upcoming meetings then please feel free to send them over to me. Similarly, if you are looking to include an event or notification in our weekly bulletin, then hit me up! There is nothing I love like the sound of an email dropping in my JCR inbox, so please get in touch x

Women’s Officer, Bea Alabaster
Hi, I’m Bea, a second year English student, and I’m your Women’s Rep. My primary responsibility is to represent the views and experiences of women in college, as well as providing feminine hygiene products for the JCR toilets and reimbursing the cost of emergency contraception. On top of that, I’m really keen to organise Turl Street women’s welfare teas and other social events in order to create a greater sense of community. I’s also like to expand the provision of feminine hygiene products for JCR members and work more closely with other JCR reps to make the role more intersectional. I’m always available to chat about any ideas or concerns you may have (regardless of your gender identity), so feel free to drop me a message or come up to me in college any time!

My role comprises of 2 main aims: that students of Exeter are supported academically and that Exeter College is a welcoming community for current and future students, irregardless of background. I’m hoping to improve the Access schemes in college and create a page on the JCR website dedicated to access, hopefully providing you with all the info and support you need regarding both applications to and studying at Exeter. I’ll also be running academic feedback sessions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about applying to or living and studying at Exeter- I’d love to hear from you!
Catering Officer, Ryan Ellison
Disabilities Rep, Grace Tully
This space to be updated soon.
Domestic and Accommodation, Avanish Parmessur
Hi, I’m Avanish, an Engineering Fresher and your current Domestic & Accommodation Officer. My role is (i)to ensure that everyone can get all the information and advice needed regarding housing arrangements for the next terms (ii) to minimise if not remove, any factors within the college that impede your comfort, ease, hygiene, or health at Exeter. Since we students have a big list of (important??) stuff to worry about, my role is to write ‘accommodation’ off that list or at least try my best to do so. Also, as promised before being elected, I will try to conduct more talks for various reasons (better communication, efficiency if many people have the same questions etc). Of course, this will depend on the availability of students. Hence, I will try a Doodle poll or some survey to know how often and when really it will be best to conduct any talk. Expect a lot of emails as well. My advice is to have separate folders in your uni mail and set up all the rules to keep your stuff organised.
International Student Rep, Chaitanya Kediyal
Hi, I’m Chaitanya Kediyal (KD), a first year lawyer and the current International Students Officer. I live in Hyderabad, India.
My role as International Rep is to voice the concerns of the international student body in the JCR. I also try to help solve problems faced uniquely by international students, such as storage over vacations.
This year, I plan on expanding the reach of this role by creating an International Food Corner during Welfare Tea. I also plan on continuing International Film Night.
Hi! I’m Natacha, second year linguist and your Music, Art, Dance and Drama Rep! My role is to organize and assist you in any arts-related events and workshops in college as well as provide any information on college or university societies and events on the Oxford music, art, dance and drama scene. Whether you have or haven’t picked up an instrument, paintbrush, playscript or a pair of dancing shoes before, there’s something arty for everyone here at Exeter: arts and crafts, life drawing, open-mic nights, recital evenings, photography walks, theatre trips, you name it! I also help co-ordinate the Turl Street Arts Society and the annual Turl Street Arts Festival with the other Turl street colleges, Jesus and Lincoln.

I’m excited to work with everyone to ensure that Exeter is as welcoming and inclusive as possible, both for new and returning students.
