Introducing Jack and the Students' Union

30 October 2023
Jack introduces himself as Students' Union President and tell us how the SU can benefit students.

Hi, my name’s Jack and I am the Students’ Union President this year.

What do you do as Students’ Union President?

In my role, I help students around the College where I can, whether it be with their wellbeing or just if they want to provide feedback as an example.

I also run the Students’ Union, and help to put on events throughout the year, such as Freshers Fayres, Celebration of Culture and our Remembrance Day to name a few. I want to make sure these events run smoothly as well as involve students at all times.

Why did you run for Students’ Union President?

I ran for President as I want to give students a voice and I want to make sure they have someone to turn to whilst they are at College.

I was in the Students’ Union last year as the Marketing and Communications Officer. Through my time in this role, I feel I have developed significantly and now am able to help push the College forward.
