Hi I’m Tom, your elected Activities & Community Officer. I’m here to represent the students views to the university whilst also making sure you get the most out of your time here at Keele whether it be doing volunteering work out in the community or getting involved with all the societies we have at Keele.

I studied the Environment and Sustainability BSc at Keele University. During this time I involved myself mostly with Think:Green Society as President and Amnesty Society as Secretary. I was also last year's International Students' Officer at Keele SU. In my spare time I love to cook while listening to music (mostly the Beatles), play video games, and enjoy the environment through walks and gardening.

Talk to me about:

  • Our 150+ societies
  • RAG (Raise & Give) - our charity fundraising
  • Volunteering

My first week as an Officer

Before arriving at the student's union on the Thursday that was to be the new officers first day, I was extremely nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I was second guessing myself, but who isn't when starting a new job?

I arrived at the SU at 9 and we began our first day of training. I ended the day feeling calm, collected and excited for the future at the Students Union. I was relieved and enjoyed every single minute of it. The next couple days even got better, we had more time to get into our roles a bit more through having access to our accounts and beginning project ideas.

The work we have as individuals and as an officer team and SU is so exciting and I don’t think I’d want to be anywhere else. So far, our training has brought us knowledge about communications, marketing, campaigns, and much more. This has prepared myself to take on this role even more so and I’m delighted to be working as Activities and Community Officer this year. The fact that I’m able to make real tangible change based on student needs is exciting and that I can make those changes according to my 5 manifesto points which are societies, student voice, communication, events, and sustainability.

I cannot wait to be fully immersed into this position after training and can’t wait to be a representative for the student body, it really is an honour and I’m ready to work on what I promised to the student body.
