Hello Reading University members, my name is Alex Rose and I am currently running for Full Time Activities Officer in RUSU. If I am elected activities officer my aims and goals are:
I am aiming to improve the Inclusivity of the Freshers and Re-Freshers Fayre by finding the perfect quiet hour times so that those who find the crush of the crowd daunting can still meet the societies both sports and activities on campus.
I am aiming to also include Postgraduate students (e.g. Masters and PhD students) increasingly with activities at RUSU by making events more accessible to those with families, those who commute and those who might have difficulties reaching events by holding more evening based events and more quiet sociable nights aimed at mature students.
I am further aiming to follow the work of previous RUSU officers by reducing the stigma associated with joining societies and that increasing the work of the Buddy System and the joint society events between sports and activities in order to promote better relationships between the societies.
I believe that I would make a good Activities Officer as this is my fourth year on campus, I have been a committee member in all roles in societies, taken part in a sports society, multiple RUSU socials, been a Course Rep in my Undergraduate and am currently a School Rep as well.
