The Vice-President (Experience & Engagement) leads a portfolio that contributes to a range of activities and events that support a positive out-of-class experience and assist students to feel part of a community while studying at the University of Newcastle.
The VP (Experience & Engagement) has the opportunity to enhance the student experience through developing and supporting extra-curricular events and activities at the University, as well as supporting Student Media and the Clubs & Societies program.
In addition to the overarching functions of the Student Experience & Engagement Committee, it is the responsibility of the VP (Experience & Engagement) to lead the Committee representatives and support them in their activities to ensure they can, and are, serving the membership of their cohort.
The VP (Experience & Engagement) works closely with the President, UNSA Staff, and the other members of the Executive, particularly the Media Officer, to achieve these responsibilities.
Hi, I’m Georgie, the UNSA Vice-President of Experience & Engagement in 2021! I’m in my third year of a Bachelor of Law/Bachelor of Science. Studying at two campuses myself, I love to see events and activities happening for students across all University of Newcastle locations.
I enjoy taking part in lots of aspects of uni life, including as a PASS Leader, Cheerleading Club committee member (GO SEAHAWKS!) and in UNLSA (University of Newcastle Law Students’ Association) competitions and events (think Client Interviewing, Law Revue, and the much-anticipated Law Ball). There really is something for everyone to get involved with at the University and to feel part of a community, whether it’s to make friends, advocate for a cause, or build that resume.
In my role on the SRC, I’m excited to work with club reps on the Experience & Engagement committee to gather feedback and ideas to help make your out-of-class student experience the best it can be! I’m keen to work on bringing about more cross-club collaboration and on-campus events (COVID-safe, of course). If there’s anything you’d like to see more of, feel free to get in touch! I’d also love to encourage more students to get involved in clubs, volunteering, and writing for our student magazine, Opus!
Finally, some fun facts about me: I moved to Newy from Armidale (where my country kids at?!) so enjoy exploring the city, beaches, and bushwalks. I also love op shopping, listening to Triple J, looking after my houseplant babies, and cooking new vego meals.
