Manifesto

Hey guys, I’m Nikisha and I want to be your deputy president, I’m a first year, but don’t let this concern you, in my few months of being here I already feel a strong sense of loyalty to this university but above all our college. From the very first day here I noticed a strong sense of community within Digby. I want to enhance this, not only for you guys but also for the students yet to come. Your time here is arguably the best years of our lives, we have all heard this from parents, teachers and friends before, all I want to do really is make sure this rings true for each and every one of you. I love a bit of competition as anyone who knows me will surely tell you, I can undeniably be a fierce competitor (just watch me playing Beer Pong), this is why I believe that we must be the best college, and we are the Lions after all. The most important thing to me, is that you all know that we are a family in this college.

 

I will get straight to the point, I won’t make you any ridiculous promises that I can’t keep, I would be letting you down and embarrassing myself, I will however promise to try my hardest to achieve anything that is reasonable, I want to work with you, the RSU, the future college president and our senior management to make your time here as enjoyable as possible.

Although I will make no promises, I will tell you my plans as deputy president; I feel that we need more events that allow students to get out and explore the city that we live in. I propose monthly trips outside of the university to take part in exciting events, a wider variety of societies in the university, flat/building competitions and introducing a Saturday afternoon/evening activity (for those who survive Bop). I’m fully aware that a lot of you love a good Bop night out, but I feel that it could be better, I have a few ideas that I will work on in partnership with the Student Bar, just a little hint of my plans is to create different rooms, that will play different genres of music.

As I’m sure has been clichéd over years in past manifestos is the need to fully integrate off-campus students, I want to manage this situation by making some of these activities available during the day so that these students can take part in, this will mean that it is easier for these students to travel home after the events.

Lastly I just want to say that I believe you should vote for me, because I will work my hardest to make these next few years the best ones of your life, let me represent you all and I will ensure that Digby Stuart’s the best it can be, but also that you are proud to be a Digby Lion.
