UG College Convenor Social Sciences

Autumn Elections 2019

Patrick Aasen

I’m Patrick, a 3rd year Sociology & Politics student, and I want to be your next undergraduate college convenor for Social Sciences. I have been involved in university life both inside and outside the SRC, and I am very eager to do well as the convenor for Social Sciences.

My past experiences as an SRC 1st year representative and as a class rep for two different courses have familiarised me with how the SRC operates. Additionally, occupying the positions of Fresher’s Week deputy team leader and treasurer of the University’s Malt Whisky Society has helped me gain further experience in teamwork and communication.

If elected, I strive to:

  • create a sense of community between schools by organising college-wide events to encourage cross-school communication.
  • finalise the rollout of Peer support across the college, so that everyone can profit from it.
  • address problems effectively by working closely and encouraging communication between myself, the VP Education, School Reps, and class reps.
  • further press the issue of lecture recordings, as some courses still refuse to utilise them.
  • work with the Interdisciplinary Studies Rep in particular to make the voices of the students in Dumfries

For an experienced and credible candidate, vote Patrick!

Ao Tong

Hi, I am Ao, a second year student from China, whose degree is business economics and politics. From January to July this year, as a student representative in Glasgow International College, I learnt quite a lot. I learnt how to communicate with students effectively and gave some suggestions to college. It was quite fun and I met some friends there. I have been the president of school studio and street dance club for two years in my high school. Basically it just taught me things like how to be a good leader. Well, I have to say that I am still trying to be a good leader. Furthermore, I have also been the Vice Chairman of Student Union for two year in my senior high school. It helped me to socialise and broaden my horizon. Based on this point, I organised numerous events such as New Year Night Talent Show and the Best Singer in my school. By the way, I am an opera singer and a hiphop street dancer. Now, I joined some brilliant societies like Adam Smith Economics Society, European Law Students’ Association, Student Theatre at Glasgow and so on. May I count on you? Thank you!
