Vote Elaina Benson for Mature
I am a third year History and Archaeology student and your previously elected Mature Students’ Representative. I am passionate about continuing to improve the Mature Students Group and I believe more could be done for Mature Students. I am committed to work towards the betterment of the group.
I pledge to:
- Continue to work towards expanding knowledge of the group and expanding member numbers.
- Continue the Mature Students booth during welcome week which I arranged last year.
- Arrange for the Mature Students banner to be present at the library twice a semester to aid in expanding members.
- Work towards expanding the budget available to the group.
- To work in close coordination with other group representatives (Parents, Post-Graduate, Part-Time) that might share concerns and age appropriate members.
- Continue to try and create another platform, besides Facebook, for group communication.
- Campaign for a designated space on campus for Mature Students to utilize for study space, offer support and as a social place for the group.
- Work with the Careers office to provide advice more appropriate for Mature Students who are changing careers versus starting one.
- Work towards providing options for UG Housing for Mature Students.
- Be readily available to members and always be open to suggestions for the group.
