Digby Deputy President
Recent Blog Posts
Hi, I’m Fizz and I’m running to be your Digby deputy president.
I’m a second year Classics student, and so far my time at Roehampton has been nothing but rewarding, so if given the chance, I would love the opportunity to give back to both the college and the university. My main aim as deputy president is to improve student welfare – we have a great support team here on Digby, so I’ll work with them to ensure that every student knows they are welcome in the college and have people to talk to if they’re struggling with university life. I will also work with the new Mental Health Officer to promote awareness of mental health problems, a growing issue, and to support initiatives such as the Mental Health Network to provide all students with the support and space they need.
In terms of social events, I plan to get a projector installed in the Digby Den, and to put on events like film nights and sports evenings, showing sports like boxing and the Superbowl for the college and university. I will work with the rest of the Digby team to organise a bigger and better welcome event in Fresher’s Week to introduce and welcome every new fresher to Digby Stuart, showing them what the best college at Roehampton looks like and how we work together. This also applies to all off-campus students – working with the new off-campus reps, I would like to get as many off-campus students involved in both Fresher’s Weekand college life as possible.
Another change I will implement into the college is to put benches on the space between Lee and Elm to create a more social area to be used by students. Bridging the gap between all of our accommodation – especially with all the building works – will allow for a better community and will utilise the space we do have in a positive way.
If you vote for me for your new Digby Stuart deputy president, I will work with the new president to continue to make Digby a welcoming place that can work for everyone. I have nothing but pride for this college and would love to giveback and use my experiences to give others an even better Uni experience than I have had over the last two years.
Lots of love, Fizz
