Hi, I'm Sophia, and I'm your Philosophy School President for 2018/19!
Hello! My name is Sophia and I am entering my third year as an International Relations and Philosophy student. Over the past two years, I have engaged with the philosophy department through Class Rep and PhilSoc roles. These roles have allowed me to notice the strong ties between staff and students. I would like to strengthen these ties, as well as improve the relations and the system of support between the students themselves. Thus, I hope to recruit some philosophy students and your Class Reps to work with me to run The Philosophy Buddy Scheme, a new non-academic mentoring scheme for incoming first year undergraduate students.
My role is to represent your voice within the School of Philosophy, including all your ideas, concerns and plans that have to do with philosophy and the department! You can share these with me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or, if you would like to meet in person during term time, you can come to my office hours which take place once a week at Rector’s (4-5pm every Thursday).
Your opinion is incredibly important to me and will influence which events I run for you throughout the semester, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with me! Aside from the support I hope to give you, you can also contact your Class Reps, who will be working very hard alongside me to represent your voices to the best extent that we can within the department.
I hope that you all have a very lovely year and I am looking forward to meeting you all!
