My name is Elias and I am your elected Student Union President for this year.
Having graduated Marjon with an Upper Second Class Honours in B.A Journalism, I wanted to stay on and help make a positive contribution to the student union experience. During my time at Marjon I was actively engaged with the Student Union, having been a member of the social team in my 2nd year and being the Entertainments Officer in my third year.
My job has many parts to it, ranging from academic representation to providing student opportunities and enhancing your student experience.
I currently sit on 14 different committee groups including board of governors and academic board , as the student representative.
This year I hope to boost student engagement with both university and union activities and events. What you do outside of your degree is just as important as your overall grade you will graduate with. Opportunities to enhance your employability include; volunteering, starting and/or running a society and becoming an officer within the union to name but a few.
I work for you, the students. If there is anything you aren’t happy about, or if there is something that isn’t offered that you think should be, then we are your first port of call.
Whether these are issues with your course or if there’s a party you want to host, we are here to help you.
The most important thing I can say to anyone is to get involved! It’s clichéd but it’s true. The amount of opportunities and friendships you will gain from taking part in something you wouldn’t usually do is not to be underestimated.
