In March this year you elected four Student Officers – Adnan, Dylan, Jodie and Hannah.
This week, your Officers start in their new roles and we’ve been finding out more about them and what they hope to achieve over the next 12 months.
Why did you run to be a Student Officer: I ran to create a student community from the Guild to Greenbank and I’m looking forward to creating the #GuildConnection
Most used emoji: The side-smile smirk!
Priorities: As well as creating a #GuildConnection; building better communities with our local residents on Smithdown Road, changing our bus travel system and establishing better digital links between the Guild and students; I will be focusing on creating a safer, more enjoyable experience for students on a night out, bringing it back to the heart of campus – the Guild!
Studied: Politics and Ancient History
Why did you run to be a Student Officer: I feel that students carry quite a lot of political weight and I was really aware of the positive social change that can happen if enough students want it to!
Most used emoji: Solidarity fist.
Priorities: My main priorities will be establishing an alternative careers fair, considering the Guild and the University’s role in preventing climate change and furthering the work on supporting students accessing the Asylum Seekers’ Bursary.
Why did you run to be a Student Officer: My work with the Feminist Society really made me realise what I’m passionate about and what is really possible in student led activism. Becoming a Student Officer means I’m in a better position to continue to create change on campus!
Most used emoji: Stars in the eyes smile.
Priorities: I will be building on the work of the Call It Out campaign, rolling out disclosure training to student leaders and staff, as well as establishing links in the local community to ensure safer club spaces.
Why did you run to be a Student Officer: After being elected last year I loved my first term of being a Student Officer and re-ran to see my campaign work on Fossil Free through!
