Hi everyone, I’m Lyndsay and I’m your class president for Film Studies for 2018/19!
I’m delighted to take on this role, and really hope that my enthusiasm for the department and subject shines through. Currently in my 4th year, I have previously stood as a Class Rep and co-ordinated the Buddy Scheme, therefore feel I have great experience and knowledge about the Film Department itself. Despite being one of the smallest departments at the university, we are the most tight-knit and the passion and dedication from the staff makes it a truly warm and exciting community to be involved with. From hosting the 60 Hour Film Blitz to coffee mornings at The Byre, the Film department is a truly unique one and I really hope to continue this vibe throughout the year.
One of my main aims as Film President will be to increase the amount of social events, from film screenings with free pizza, to tricky quizzes with cinema ticket prizes. I really want to take advantage of how small our department is, and will really work at creating a friendlier environment where everyone feels welcome. I also want to work on more career-related events, and utilise the Class Rep system more, to gather more feedback and really listen to what students have to say. If you have any questions, or just want to say hi and chat about films, then please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and I look forward to meeting everyone when the time comes!
