Each college has a JCR (except Graduate College which has a Postgrad Board). This is the Junior Common Room and it basically means each and every member of the college, ultimately YOU! The JCR is represented by the JCR Exec who are an elected body of students who organise events and look after the welfare of its students.

Here at Fylde, the student voice is of the highest importance. That is why the JCR Exec will represent the college in the best way they can at all times!
