Hello, I am Guopeng from China, your MCR Welfare Officer for the 2020/2021 academic year. I am a second-year MPhil student in Archaeology
As my first-year experience proved, Oxford is a fantastic and yet sometimes a bit stressful place. You will have a wonderful time here, though you may also experience a lot of difficulties, especially during week 5 of each term (we call that Week Five Blues). I am always here for a nice chat or a cup of tea if you have any problems or you need any welfare supplies. If necessary, I can guide you to professional help both at the college level and the university level.
You can find me easily via email. Or, you can drop in the welfare tea events every fortnight in the MCR tea room, where you can enjoy the company of many friends and of course, nice tea, biscuits, cakes and snacks from different countries! You may also find me in various badminton events, and it will be great if you can join the Hertford Badminton Team or other sports activities, as exercising regularly is a powerful way to prevent and fight against depression and low moods. Feel free to come to any of our welfare events and talk to me if you need any help!
I look forward to meeting all of you in Michaelmas!
