Get Involved

There are so many different ways to get involved with college life, especially with CSAC events. We hold regular pub quizzes and Live lounge performances across the campus bars, in addition to a number of one off and yearly events, like Fresher’s Week, Refreshers, Winter Ball, Event X and our Summer BBQ.

We hold our committee meetings every Tuesday at 6:30pm in the JCR, and have regular open meetings where the whole college are welcome.

A big part of the committee is focused on well being and RAG (Raising and Giving). Well being and support is a key area that the college really focuses on and excels in, raising awareness for a number of different issues, including mental health, and providing support through activities like exam refuge.

Our RAG charity until January 2019 is The Island, who provide mentoring services in York for children and young people. We also hold a number of RAG events, including a popular Valentines Blind Dates with Vanbrugh. The CSAC also arrange and help support and promote one off volunteering opportunities for students within the college.

If you’d like to know any more about these, please contact Morgan, our VP for Ethical Engagement - mes545@york.ac.uk.

Sports are another big part of college life in Alcuin, and both the CSAC and college staff invest in our sports teams. Currently teams include: Netball, Darts, Rugby, Hockey, Football, Womens Football, Pool, Badminton, Squash and Rounders. We’ve had huge successes over the past years with our Netball and Darts teams, with Netball playing in Roses 2018 and Darts playing Durham in College Varsity.
