Hi, My Name is Max;

I am currently a student representative and a student council member. I have a high presence on campus and will always try to make time to listen to you.

 

I am running for 2 positions:

1) A Part-Time officer in Computing and Digital Media.

2) An NUS Conference delegate.

I am running for these positions because I believe that I can dedicate myself to improving your life at the university.

 

If I am elected, we can hopefully look forward to:

1) Better Timetabling.

My plan is to try and compress your timetables into fewer days, and more consistent times. This will help to benefit your work hours and ease your weekly scheduling.

2) Stopping mid-year construction.

I will try to have the construction on campus fixed to holiday times so that it no longer disturbs us during lessons or exams.

3) New labs on the 3rd floor.

I will aim to have the 3rd-floor labs in Holloway tower improved as the labs look aesthetically outdated. The desks are old and wooden and can become a health and safety hazard.

The windows aren’t well insulated, and in the winter, this makes heating the labs harder and wastes money from the heating budget. This also means in the summer the university won’t be able to afford to run the air conditioning.

4) Larger/ fluid budgets.

I will try to increase the size of the budgets by creating a chain of command for expenses and having departments working together to save resources and money for a greener environment.

5) Better communication.

It has come to my attention that there is a lack of communication between staff, student and other departments. This has had some unfortunate consequences, such as students not getting their additional exam arrangements. I will do my best to prevent this from happening in the future.
