VP Activity - Alexa Hughes
I’m Alexa, your VP Activity for 2018/19. I have a Masters in Civil Engineering and have been a member of the Squash club, Debating Society and CivSoc. This year I am focussing on the role of the Union in improving your employability, breaking down barriers to participation and promoting the benefit to your wellbeing through activity. Any problems/questions or just for a chat come and see me in the Sabb office at the SU.
There is a huge range of Sports and Societies on offer at Surrey. Take our quiz to find the right one for you!
What is the Activity Zone?
It’s the VP's job to lead the Activity Zone. During the year, the Activity Zone deliver a number of campaigns to help promote student involvement with Activities, as well as help organise events such as Varsity, Colours Ball and Student & Society Awards. The Activity Zone is here to help students get involved in as many things as possible! Check out what sports clubs and societies are on offer at the side bar under 'Sports & Societies'.

Team Surrey Chair
Hello, I'm Alex your Team Surrey Chair for 2018-19. I have just completed a degree in Aerospace Engineering and now continuing at Surrey to do a MSc in Renewable Energy. I have played on the University Basketball First team for 3 years and have held various committee positions within the Basketball Club. My aims for the coming year are to; help active students understand the skills they have gained from engaging in University activity for improving their employability, increase student participation through awareness of student activity options, and improve the relationship we have with our kit provider PlayerLayer to help Surrey students get the most out of their student experience. I am also Dyslexic (an ALS student) and hope to help minorities feel they can and should get involved in student activity at Surrey.
Namaste, I am Riddhish, your Societies Chair for the 2018-19. I am a Final year, BMus. Creative Music Technology, Student Ambassador and Course Rep. For the past 3 years, I have been the President of the Bollywood Dance Society along with my various committee role in Indian Student Association. I have also been Captain to our University's 2nd Table Tennis team for the year 2016 -17. As Societies Chair, I intend to help committee members build a stronger foundation of running societies together and provide opportunities to enhance website engagement as well as member engagement throughout the year. I aspire to push forward the idea of Societies to be a singular entity like the Team Surrey to elevate the significance of what Societies offer to the development of student experience and their university life altogether.
