My name is Ben Gunnip and I am delighted to let you all know that I am your Education Officer for this coming Academic Year 2019/2020. I am absolutely over the moon be able to represent all of you this year.
So! How do I represent you? My job as Education Officer is to represent all students on all things academic related. This could be anything from a query relating to an exam to something like…. SUSI!! No matter how big or how small an issue may be, don’t ever hesitate to contact me or any of the other officers! We are here for you!
Starting college is such a stressful time but also very exciting at the same time!! Enjoy your nights out, have fun and socialise! If you feel like you would like to get involved with a club or a society, then join some of them!
One of my main goals this year is to increase Class Rep engagement. Being a class rep is an invaluable experience and I would highly recommend anyone who has an interest to run for the position. As a class rep, you are the chosen representative for your class. You are the link between your class and WITSU. Running for the role of class rep was by far the best decision I have ever made! The number of friends you meet is unbelievable and the skills you develop and learn are of huge benefit to your personal self.
College is amazing but it can be very stressful from time to time. Remember, WITSU are here for you. Utilize the resources WITSU has to offer, from talking to your School Convenors to popping in to chat to one of the Full-time Sabbats.
Everything that is said in my office is strictly confidential! No issue is too big nor too small. I want you to feel comfortable to be able to chat about anything on your mind. I am here for you, WITSU are here for you!
So, in summary, enjoy the year, get out and about! Go out and enjoy the nightlife and just have fun. I hope you will feel comfortable this year in college and enjoy what WIT and WITSU has to offer you!
I look forward to meeting you all throughout the coming year!
