For those of you who do not already know me, I am Jessie Downs, and am campaigning to be your next VP College. During my two years at university I have dedicated all my free time to getting involved with LSU. I have been a programme rep, an active member of my hall committee, a committed member of action, raising £3,000 for Loughborough rag, and am also a member of numerous societies. My involvement in this diverse range of union sections has given me an essential insight into the union as a whole, and the knowledge I have acquired from my experiences equips me with the skills to represent Loughborough College in the best possible way. If elected I aim to:
– Increase participation of college students in all union sections.
Increase correspondence with the college in order to determine their interests.
Create events specifically for college students in action/rag/media. Advertise events to all college students through newsletters and social media.
– Place greater emphasis on key employability skills.
Include a list of employability skills gained from each event alongside the event details to assist with job and university application processes.
– Increase media coverage of college events.
Encourage college students to take responsibility in the media production process.
– Increase recognition of college students’ achievements.
Create awards for involvement within LSU. Furthermore, I will promote college students’ work within the local community, such as having a college showcase involving as many students as possible.
Vote Jessie for VP College!
