Societies Officer

Hi! My name’s Olly and I’m your Societies Officer. It’s my job to support and guide our 200+ societies in delivering exciting and enriching opportunities to the whole Warwick community.

Fun fact about me:
I also teach Aerial Skills and Pole Dance !

My role and what I hope to achieve this year:
Societies are a huge part of the SU’s offering to students, and are an excellent way to try something new and meet loads of new friends whilst doing so. Whether you want to join your academic society, join a campaign group, learn a new skill or just meet like-minded people, with over 200 societies there will be something for you. Not only can societies add so much to your experience at Warwick, all our societies are student-run and led, so you’ll also have the opportunity to run for committee positions to help guide the direction of societies in the future, which is an experience I can’t recommend highly enough!

It’s my role to ensure that all of these societies are well-supported by the SU so they can do what they do best. Whether it's through promotion of societies’ events, support with planning or funding, or championing their issues at a University level, I’m here to help.

Throughout this year, I hope to build on welfare and inclusivity training for exec members, streamline room bookings and improve the SU website to make information more readily available and easier to find. I will also be giving support on virtual and socially distant events to keep everything running smoothly during these difficult times.

If you have any questions, suggestions, comments or just want a chat about what your society is getting up to, please do get in touch. Also, be sure to get involved and enjoy all the great things our societies have to offer!
