Tom Phillips

Physics and Philosophy
Tom came to Manor Hall in 2014 to read Physics and Philosophy. Since his arrival he has been constantly involved in the life of the Hall. In his first year, he was elected as Entertainments Rep for the JCR and subsequently was appointed JCR Co-President in the Easter Term, becoming one of the first holders of this office to live outside of the Hall. It is in this role that has led to praise from his peers and ultimately this award for an ambitious and varied JCR calendar, increasing its influence in the Hall and laying the foundation for a strong JCR in years to come. He introduced the Debating Society, supported the new Manor Hall Choir and, at the end of his tenure, secured funding for a new electric organ in the Great Hall.
