President

Diego Ramirez Alcalde
MCR President 2024-25

Hey! I’m Diego, from Chile, a lawyer by training, currently on the second year of my MPhil in Philosophical Theology. I’m mostly focused on topics in Ethics and Philosophy of Religion, particularly on neo-Stoicism and Virtue Ethics.

As the MCR President I want to offer you a friendly, fun and welcoming space in MCR and help you navigate life at Oxford. Please do reach out with any questions, concerns, difficulties or if you only wanna grab a coffee. I’m always happy to help. You can normally find me around the MCR/College or at: mcr.president@oriel.ox.ac.uk.

Vice-President

Anna Glieden
MCR Vice-President 2024-25

Hey everyone!
I’m Anna, a third-year DPhil student in Modern Languages working on how eighteenth-century French writings about sculpture tie into Enlightenment ideas.

When I’m not buried in my thesis, you might find me drawing or chatting in the MCR. I’m always up for a coffee, so feel free to reach out if you want to chat or have any questions!

Looking forward to meeting you!

P.S. If you can’t find me in the MCR, email me at mcr.vp@oriel.ox.ac.uk.

Secretary

Christine Freitas
MCR Secretary 2024-25

Hi there! Worhty of being part of Brazilian royalty, my full name is Christine Helise Rosa de Freitas – but you can call me Christine. I’m a first year DPhil student in Theology, whose favorite past time is to explain to people sitting next to her on the plane why is it she is reading Hebrew 42,000 feet above ground. Other passions include rowing for Oriel, baking for friends, making customized cards, flat whites, Scottish porridge, and scones (as per picture).

My role as the MCR Secretary involves taking care of administrative behind-the-scenes, madly taking minutes at GAs and making sure you feel welcomed to our lively community. Please reach out if you have any questions!

Treasurer

Ashby Neterer
MCR Treasurer 2024-25

I am the Thomas Torrance scholar of Theology at Oriel. Here at Oriel, I am also President of the Oriel College Metaphysical Society, and I have rowed for Oriel men’s second boat in Torpids and Summer Eights. In my free time, I hike, play music, and read. The Oriel MCR has been a home away from home to me, and I hope to make feel like home for our members, new and old, in the 2024–25 academic year.

Welfare Officer

Pia Regensburger
MCR Welfare Officer 2024-25

Hello! My name is Pia and I am delighted to be one of your welfare officers this year! We serve as a first point of contact for all MCR members in need, however I am looking forward to being around as a welcoming, friendly face most generally speaking! We will be organising a range of different welfare activities throughout the term, and it would be great to see you there – especially at our weekly afternoon teas!

Some brief words about myself: I am a 2nd year MPhil in Theology working at the crossroads of biblical studies and philosophy. Coming from Austria I love going on hikes, skiing and skating. In my free time I very much enjoy eating good food and (obviously) spending time with the MCR community. You can always reach me at: mcr.welfare@oriel.ox.ac.uk

Bar Manager

Rhienna Morar
Bar Manager 2024-25

Hi, I’m Rhienna. I’m in my fifth year studying Medicine so am an Oriel veteran at this point… I’m a cocktail (and mocktail) enthusiast who also enjoys whisky. In my very little free time you can find me trying to intimidate gym bros twice my size or in Peleton Espresso (banana bread 10/10). Our bar and space truly does make our MCR unique, so I hope to see you around!
