Alex Urquhart, Theatre: Directing, Writing and Performance 3rd year
What are your three main policies? 1. Create a digital system of feedback, allowing students to have a say in the planning of YUSU and University policy. 2. Invest in Hes East, such as by introducing a Hes East Council to encourage collaboration between its colleges. 3. Empower events led by students, such as through free advertising for all student-led club nights.
Could you describe yourself in two-three sentences? I’m driven, passionate and decisive. I like keeping busy, I’ve been a part of a lot of big events held at York and that’s where I’ve had the most fun. I like a beer, and Weetabix.
What makes you well suited for the role? From my first term at York, my life has been centred around enhancing the student experience. From events, to chairing Derwent, I’ve been able to acclimatise to the professional and personal demands of student leadership.
How are you planning to conduct your campaign? I’m going to be appearing all over! Lectures, nights out and catered dinners. Please feel free to stop me for a chat. My manifesto has been built of feedback from students, and I’d love to keep hearing what people think about my policies! Also, look out for my video…
