Maria Rotaru

International Students Officer/Fresher's Committee

Hey guys! I’m Maria (she/her), a second year Philosophy, Politics and Economics student.

I’m Romanian and have lived in Bucharest all my life. I will be your International Officer for this year! I will be running events for international students (or anyone else that wants to join) so join the Somerville Internationals Facebook group so as not to miss out on anything! I am here to make your transition into Somerville as seamless as possible so feel free to ask me any questions at all, from college life and traditions to fitting your whole life into a couple of suitcases. I’m also here if you just need someone to talk to if you ever feel a bit homesick or just want to see a friendly face. Contact me via e-mail (, Facebook (Maria Rotaru), or come up to me when you see me around college. Somerville truly is an amazing, welcome community and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Where Next?
