Hello, I’m Rowan Jackson-Stewart, a final year veterinary student.
I’ve been involved with the SRC for the past year; twice as a Fresher’s helper and as a member of their PR team. I also co-organised the small animal events at AVS congress 2015.
If elected I will:
• Ensure vet students are viewed as a part of the whole university; not just GUVMA. The Garscube campus sometimes means we’re inadvertently overlooked and I want to ensure you are getting the most out of your university and the University is getting the most out of you!
• Aim to get vet textbooks stocked in the main university library. Choosing to live in the West End shouldn’t make it difficult to access vital resources.
• Look into a better minibus service between West End and vet school.
• Promote the services the university has to offer. As part of the SRC I’ve learnt about a lot of really useful services – it shouldn’t take every vet student until fourth year to utilise them!
• Hold drop-in sessions before every GUVMA/SRC council meeting so you have many opportunities to let me know what you want from your university!
I am enthusiastic, approachable and open to all suggestions!
Who am I?
I’m currently a 5th year student with an interest in small animal medicine.
Do I have enough experience to represent our school successfully?
Throughout vet school I have been on various committees – I adore getting involved in the organisational side of charities and societies. Below are some of my previous roles:
• Secretary of Rodeo Committee
• Secretary and Publicity Convenor of Glasgow University Canoe Club
• 3rd year Class Representative
• Student Representative for XL Vets, Vetoquinol and SPVS
Most importantly, when the position for the Vet School Representative went unfilled in the Spring SRC elections, I offered to stand in over summer and carry out relevant duties. As such I have been sitting on board meetings for the likes of the GLaSS Building, already contributing the views of the vet school student body.
What will I do if I become elected?
I have listed my three main plans for the next year:
• Collection point at vet school for contributions to the Refugee Crisis
• Improve the student/staff mentor scheme
• Start a user friendly EMS database from current students’ previous placements
Vote for Claire!
