Candidate for the position of President (Communication & Democracy)



Hi, my name is Cameron and I am running for the position of President of Communication and Democracy. I’m currently in my 5th year of MEng Mechanical Engineering.

My manifesto points:

  • Aim to BRING BACK THE UNION – more social space on campus for students to relax and use the university for more than just studying!
  • Create stronger connections with the sports clubs across the university and work with the elected president of sport to allow more voices to be heard in the sporting sector
  • Aim to lobby the university on improving transport links for the university, especially around exam time
  • Improve the social media representation around the union
  • Aim for more recognition for student volunteers 
  • My past experience is I’ve been active in sport throughout my university life. I’ve been a member of the tennis club for 5 years, where I have been president for two of those years. 
  • I am currently a member of the Sport and Physical Activity Team (SPAT), where I work closely with the sports president in promoting sport throughout the university and organise events for all sports clubs (such as Baby Blues, Oktoberfest, Blues Ball).
  • I’ve gained lots of experience in these roles throughout my time at RGU – which has given me insight into how the union runs and appreciate the hard work that is required to reach goals and fulfil student satisfaction.
  • I can assure if I’m elected that I will work hard to implement my manifesto points and make sure voices and ideas are heard all across university to improve the student life and satisfaction around RGU. Thank you.
