More about Louise
What do you study?
I study Media, Communications and Social Media and I’m a third year.
What SU run events and activities have you been a part of?
I have been a part of Sound Radio for 2 years now. I have also been a StAR since first year.
What are your top Manifesto points?
- Making the SU more environmentally friendly.
- A student bus route/prices for students.
- More representation for non-sports societies.
What made you run in the Elections to become an officer?
After being a StAR for 2 years, I really wanted to be able to make a change to the university myself, and be able to represent students from all different backgrounds. I saw the brilliant work that SU officers had done and felt inspired to do the same. I am also very conscious that we could be doing a lot more as a university to be more environmentally friendly, and this is something I want to help implement.
What’s your favourite thing about Winchester?
My favourite thing about Winchester is the sense of community there, as we have such a small campus and quite a small number of students compared to some universities, you really get to know people. I know almost everyone on my course, and if you go to BOP, you are guaranteed to meet people you know. I also love how the lecturers really get to know you.
What has been your proudest moment during your student journey?
My proudest moment is achieving a First overall for second year, I have dropped out of university before and didn’t think I could every get a first, but I did. Hopefully I can keep it up for my final year!
What do you like doing when you aren’t being a Winchester SU Officer?
I absolutely love going to the cinema, it’s by far my favourite thing to do, it’s what my friends know me for! I also like shopping - a lot, and have an addiction to the ethical clothing company Lucy and Yak! Another thing I love to do is travel, and I can’t wait to hopefully be able to do that after third year has finished.
