I'm Rachel Hadley, Student Voice Coordinator. It's my job to work with the elected officers to coordinate the academic representative system at Keele, the campaigns we run throughout the year, student elections and student decision-making forums.

 200x200 SU 2018 I'm Liam, the Student Voice Intern here at KeeleSU. I support all the work that Student Voice do to represent students, by helping with elections, meetings and making sure the University hears what students have to say.

Opportunities covers Activities and Volunteering. Here are some of the team members...

 

I'm Tom Langley, Activities Coordinator. I'm your first point of call if you want to discuss anything to do with societies - from setting up a new society, to getting expenses signed off.

The Activities team can be found on the top floor of the SU; just follow the dark green floor arrows towards the Student Opportunities office between 9am-5pm.

 Maria SU 200x200

Hi, my name's Maria and I am one of the Activities Coordinators. I work with all 36 sports clubs that are part of the Athletic Union, help them with any queries and organise their competitive fixtures. I also help organise the AU's annual events, such as Past Vs Present, Christmas and Presentation Balls and Varsity. Feel free to get in touch with any questions on [email protected]

 Megan SU 200x200

My name is Megan and I work in the Volunteering Department. Volunteering was really important to me during my degree, and now I get to help other students see its value. I work closely with local charities finding ways students can volunteer in the community and make a difference. The department runs on and off campus volunteering, so if you want to stay close to halls or explore beyond Keele whilst making a difference, we can help you do that.

 Olena SU 200x200 My name is Olena and I work in the Volunteering Department. I'm from Ukraine and understand what it's like to move away from home. KeeleSU Volunteering can help you integrate into the local community through volunteering, and it's a great way to get involved with something alongside your degree, gain career skills, and have fun.
