Guides & Handbooks


This is a series of quick, colourful walkthroughs to introduce you to concepts such as the JCR, JCR meetings and things to be aware of for life in college. Recommended reading.

The Handbooks on this site are much more the "reference manuals" of life in John's. There's no need (and arguably no point) in reading most unless it's relevant to something you're trying to do.
