First Year Representative


Temisan Atsegoh

Hello! My name is Temisan ,

The first time I visited the University, I was amazed by the student life it offered and knew right away that I wanted to get involved. Since my arrival I have learned something new every day, and there hasn’t been a time where I regretted my decision of going to University of Glasgow.

I know since we are just starting being a Fresher is scary! Considering I am doing the same I understand what you are going through  and we can go through it together!

Being a first year student is both exciting and overwhelming. On the one hand, we are fascinated by our new environment, but on the other hand there are situations when we feel alone or misunderstood.

I will be more than happy to raise any topic or concern that we are facing.

What I’ve learned in my first few weeks in Glasgow is that everyone is so friendly and warm. And it would be an honour to be your First Year Rep.

Vote for Temisan!

Seven Jacobs

Hey everyone! My name is Seven (like the number!), and I’m looking to represent as a First Year Representative.

Over the last two years, I have spent time working with young people and clients from all over the world, through work like consulting, education, and youth advocacy.

Now that I have finally started university, I want to bring that experience forward and turn it into something constructive. I believe that creating such environments is important to growth, and so now that I am in a new place, I want to create that for current and future first year students.

My core values are opportunity and empathy, and so I will actively seek out ways to create creative and flexible opportunities for all students to get involved in, and want to create an open space across campus to learn and reflect from one another.  I want to do this by trying to establish links and set up events to enhance our campus’s community and take part in chances to listen to other students; for example, with a comprehensive mentoring programme.

Thank you for taking your time, and I hope you’re as excited about this year as I am!
