ROCHESTER CLUBS & SOCIETIES OFFICER CANDIDATES
JOSHUA BRAND[VIEW CANDIDATE PAGE]
My name’s Joshua, I’m FE Student Officer for UCA Rochester and a first year student working in the CMPT course. Since the By-Election in October, I’ve tried to make the student experience better, and need your help to do so again.
IF ELECTED, HOW WOULD YOU CREATE MORE OF A COMMUNITY?
As an active member of the Student Union, I believe in taking every opportunity available to me. The trouble with that, though, is the incredibly limited number of opportunities available to us students. I want to change that. For the last academic year, I’ve been trying to make changes for the student experience but haven’t had the right opportunity to really make those changes. This is my chance, true, but it is most of all a chance for life at UCA Rochester to get so much better. I am organising a set of free events available to all students, gathering information about your interests and using that information to incorporate what you love, into daily life at UCA. I am also organising a website to make questions and comments easier to make, and to help you with the somewhat daunting process of starting societies. There is a real chance here for progression and growth, will you take it?
WHAT OPPORTUNITIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS?
What I love most about students at UCA Rochester is their variety and individuality, never afraid to be different and to express themselves. Therefore, we students need enough opportunities to reflect who we are. Not only that, but also to forge friendships around common interests – truly building a community within the university.
HOW WOULD YOU INSPIRE STUDENTS TO HAVE A VOICE?
With communication between students and the university being minimal, most people can’t get their voice heard. Believe me when I say that I can – not only that, I can build the relationship between students and the university, making improvement and growth even easier for students. We need someone to speak for the students, and, although there are a couple of candidates, you need to vote for the one you can rely on. Someone with experience and the tenacity to see things through… If you’re going to vote, do so wisely.
