Social and Cultural committee (SCC)
Social and Cultural Committee (SCC) allocates and approves money for all the College’s clubs, societies and social functions.
Its sub-committees encompass most of the life of the Wolfson community. SCC's Sub-committees are: Ball, Bar Committee (BarCo), Entertainments (“Entz”), Arts, Music, Romulus, Sports, Families.
Provided you can draw up a credible budget and a good case for expenditure, practically any worthy endeavor can be supported by the Common Room Fund, which is overseen by the Social and Cultural Committee.
Every year, a committee of students is invited to organise a Christmas Ball on a theme of their choice, and a summer event to cater for the whole community. This is a great opportunity to get to know people and to work as a team to put together an exciting programme of entertainment.
The Cellar Bar and Games Room is run by a student committee known as 'Barco'. Learn more.
