President – Benjamin Hellings

My name is Ben and this is my third year at St. Hugh’s. I am about to start the first year of my DPhil in Ancient History and I specialize in Roman numismatics and economics. I am a football (soccer) fanatic and currently I am also the President of the MCR’s football club (SHMCRFC). In the past I have served on the MCR committee as a Social Secretary and Secretary. 

My job as MCR President is to represent the graduate community of St. Hugh’s to College and the University. In order to do so, I sit on various committees to ensure the MCR’s needs are heard and to report back to the MCR committee.
My primary aim is to ensure things run as smoothly as they can and to ensure that you get the most out of your time here at St. Hugh’s.

Please do get in touch with any suggestions/questions/comments you may have.

Playing and musing on improvised piano, jazz, cricket, football and mono no aware are my tangled pastimes.
