I'm a 3rd year at Catz. I study Medicine and dabble in a variety of things including Taekwondo and Good Samaritan phone-lines. I also started my own guided meditation society in College, which alumni should, of course, feel free to drop in to any time they are around. The prospect of speaking to alumni and finding out what's happening with the Catz diaspora is very exciting, as is telling them all about the cool stuff we have going on in College and how you can support us!

I’m going into my 2nd year studying History at Catz. In my spare time, I am involved in the Jewish Society and play football for the Catz 3rd team. I’m really looking forward to talking to alumni about their time at the College, particularly with reference to what their perception of the student political situation in Oxford was like. Moreover, I would be fascinated to talk to any alumni who were in the early 1960s intake to hear what the atmosphere was like at the time of our founding as a College!

Lucy Roberts

I’m a 2nd year Geographer at Catz. I can usually be found either on the water rowing or in the water swimming. As well as being a keen sportsperson, I am also involved in a great deal of charity work and have recently trekked the Great Wall of China in aid of a children’s charity. I’m really looking forward to participating in the Telethon, which will give me the opportunity to discover more about the history of the College, discuss the experiences of alumni, and raise funds to support current and future Catz students.

I'm a second year student at Catz, reading Geography – so far, I’ve progressed to 17 different colouring pencils. Next year, I'm on the JCR Committee as Welfare Rep and I’m looking forward to providing lots of bagels and cups of tea.  I think it will be great to speak to Alumni during the Telethon to find out more about Catz history and whether its food has always been as great. I'm hoping next year to complete the six meal challenge of breakfast, buttery, lunch, buttery, scaf and hall!

Katherine Hickson

I'm a second year Geography student here at Catz. Aside from colouring in, I spend much of my spare time at the sports centres and I also compete for the University and College in Modern Pentathlon. I'm really looking forward to talking with Catz alumni and hopefully raising some funds to help current and future Catz students. 

Joe Cock

I’m a fourth year languages student, which makes me the token oldie of the Telethon team (and of Catz UGs as a whole!). I chose to study French out of a love for the country’s food, the wine and the cynicism. My interests include cooking, learning then forgetting new languages, and travelling to far-off corners of the globe where my unfortunate surname is not a social burden. I look forward to chatting with alumni and absorbing some of their hard-earned wisdom.

James Taylor

I’m a 3rd year Geographer at Catz, and this will be my second time doing the Telethon. Last year, I really enjoyed connecting with alumni and hearing about the different paths that people have taken since leaving College. I was the Catz rugby captain last season, and when I have the time, I also lend my services to the football and cricket teams. 

Holly Jackson

I am a 3rd year Geography student at Catz. In my free time, I play hockey for the Catz girls’ hockey team, I serve as Vice President of the Oxford Guild Business Society, and work as Business Executive for the Cherwell newspaper. I am really excited to participate in the Catz Telethon, to hear the stories of Catz Alumni, and of course, to raise much valued funds for the College.

Fleur Nash

I am now a third year Human Scientist, which I can't quite believe, as it seems only yesterday that I was arriving at Catz for the first time. I have tried to partake in Oxford life as much as possible,  from coxing the men's first boat for the College, to organising the 2014 Climate Forum and taking part in the university-wide drama and sports scenes. Yet, it is the unique Catz community which I love the most. Being a member of the JCR Committee has really made me appreciate the warmth and openness of our College. I look forward to speaking to alumni and finding out more about what Catz was like in the past! 

Clare Smedley

I am about to start my third year studying medicine at Catz (although sometimes it feels like I spend more time doing music than Medicine). I sing in the Catz choir and in another choir outside college, enjoy performing in shows, occasionally (and badly) play for the College girls football team, and I have perfected a handstand (if someone holds my feet) with the university gymnastics club. I'm looking forward to speaking to lots of Catz alumni whilst working on the Telethon. It will be great to hear about their time studying and living here and raise money to help others have the same experiences at Catz.
