I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but i am and have been for three years a student representative for Criminology. The role of a student rep is to be a voice for the students on your course. In first year I introduced myself in the first lecture so everybody knew who I was. Students approach you for all different kins of reasons either, problems with the course, tutors, funding, jobs, or even personal reasons. As a student rep it is your job to be there for students and to help them with any issues or concerns.
Today is my last ever student rep meeting at the Students Union 1-3pm 🙁 I have loved my role as a rep and it has helped me develop my communication skills, meet new people, help others, be involved with Criminology and it is great for my CV. I would encourage anyone coming to Edge Hill to put themselves up as a student rep as it is very rewarding and makes your experience at university that little bit more special.
Take every opportunity at university because the rewards are endless 🙂
