Female Assistant Welfare Officer – Louise Nicholson

Hi everyone! I’m Louise, a second year marketing and management student from the North East and I’m your Assistant Female Welfare Officer for this year. I’m available to you when you need me and will try my very best to help. I’m at home so I will be available to both students living in Durham and Stockton. I want you all to have an amazing university experience that is both fun and safe. As there are two assistants I’m in charge of keeping stock of all items in the welfare cupboard and will be open to taking suggestions for new items that we don’t currently offer if any of you have any ideas. I also attend regular welfare meetings where we will discuss and organise campaign weeks for you . I look forward to seeing you all!

Environment Officer – Evie Jones

Hi, I’m Evie and I’m the environments officer for the upcoming academic year. My job is to help make Stephenson as environmentally friendly as possible by reducing waste, lowering emissions and looking after our local environment. It is for that reason that I will be contacting you throughout the year using our amazing JCR website or social media sites in order to save using paper and care for our environment. Feel free to come talk to me at any point to share your ideas about how we can add a tinge of green to Stevo’s red. Alternatively, just find me for a chat about general university life! Stevo love x

Livers-Out Officer – Jeffrey Bryant

Hi, I’m Jeff from London, a second year Marketing & Management student, and your Livers Out Officer. I’ll be a liver out myself this year, and I want to ensure that the quality of your student experience isn’t determined by whether you’re living in or out of college. I aim to do this by making events as accessible as possible for everyone, ensuring we have events in Durham and in college, as well as creating social media groups so that those living out can meet people on their course living nearby so that they have someone to go to lectures with. If you have any personal recommendations or ideas please feel free to give me a shout on social media or come see me during my office hours. See you soon!

Rainbow Rep – Mae Lonsdale

Hi, I’m Mae, a 2nd year Psychology student and as your Rainbow Rep, I’m here to encourage you to be yourself and ensure you are accepted for that! For me, LGBT isn’t just about sexuality, it’s about each and every single person in Stevo feeling welcomed and safe, and ensuring that your university experience is continuously enhanced by being who you are. I’ve got so much planned for you guys this year (most of which I’ll try and keep a surprise but expect a load of rainbows!!) and can’t wait to meet all of the people who are going to carry on making Stevo the proud and accepting college that we are! I hope I get to see you around soon! x

Troughout the year I will be on campus in the Student Union Office (located in the Holliday Building) so feel free to pop by and find out what’s going on in the Union and what the Union can do for you. My role is fundamentally about representing you all which is super important with the transition approaching! I am hoping to set up a social media page especially devoted to reporting all the key bits and bobs to do with the Union and also to get your views on any Union activity and elections. As the voice of Stevo in the Union, I hope that you get involved and hold me accountable in the role. I look forward to seeing everyone soon and having an amazing year!
