Hi I'm Pete and I'm a third year Politics Student. My main aim as a part-time officer this year is to try and make your life as a student easier and more enjoyable. As a result , a main focus of mine is to help students looking for and then living in second year accommodation. Finding and then moving into a house can be an intimidating thing and that's why I want to help make that process easier!
Also , in my opinion, a great thing about Surrey is the wide variety of sports and societies that we have here. That's why as a part-time officer I want to try and promote the successes of these clubs and societies, in order to try and create an even greater sense of community at the university.
Increase Awareness of the Students' Union
The Students' Union does a fantastic job and really enhances the student experience at Surrey.
I aim to increase awareness about the Union and make sure that students not only understand how it works but also make sure that they know what the Union can offer to support them.
Help Those Looking for Accommodation
As a second-year student, I am fully aware of how difficult looking for accommodation can be. Therefore, I intend to make sure that students are aware of the support that the Union can offer them. Furthermore, I will build on previous work done by the Union and assist in producing a more in-depth handbook, which would include more useful tips about living off-campus and information about tenants' rights.
Work to Create a More United Student Community
For me, going to university is not just about getting a degree, it's about the experiences you have as well. Therefore, in my opinion one of the best things about Surrey is the wide range of societies and sports available, which offer so many opportunities to students with different interests. I will work with the Activity Zone to promote the success of these clubs and societies, which would bring the student community closer together with a shared pride in university success.
Make Rubix Safer
Another great thing about Surrey is Rubix! It offers a place where students can escape from the stress of studying and just enjoy spending time with their friends. Therefore, it is vital to ensure that Rubix is a safe environment, where people can feel more comfortable and relaxed.
I aim to reduce the number of glass bottles in Rubix, which will make it even safer!
