We spoke to our brand new SU President, Dan, to find out all about him and his plans for the year.
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Hi my name is Dan Ball. I’m 19 years old. In my spare time I like to meet up with friends and take my dogs out for a walk. My favorite sport is Rugby. I support Bath and England Rugby club.
What did you study at Bath College?
I studied Uniformed Public Services for three years. I started at level two and finished level 3 year two.
Why did you apply to be the SU President?
I applied for the Student Union President Job role because I would like a future career in pastoral care and applying for this role can give me an insight what it is like.
Why do you think the SU is important?
The SU is important as this gives the chance for all students to put forward their suggestions on how the college can improve based on their needs. I also think the SU is important as this students can work as a team.
What would you like to achieve during your Presidency?
I would like to achieve in my year as president is to raise money to a chosen charity by the majority of students getting involved into different kinds of fundraising. I would also like to achieve a good outcome towards the campaigns I have created for this year.
What vision do you have for the SU at Bath College?
The vison I have for the SU is that the Student Union will be there to support students throughout the year so they can also get involved with us and learn more about what the Student Union does.
Where can you be found on campus?
I can be found in the Student Union and Participation office on the bottom floor of the Macaulay building in the new Student Union area.
Do you have any words of wisdom or advice for new and returning students?
The words of wisdom I would say to students is to keep a positive mind set to your studies. Have fun and a laugh with friends and staff members and always smile.
