About Erin

Hey! I’m Erin, your Women’s Officer for 2020/21. I am a third-year Business and Sport student trying to make a positive difference to student experience at UON. I am honestly so excited to get to work for the SU and I’m looking forward to working with students on their suggestions to make uni a better place for everyone. I’ve dabbled in many sports teams but have settled down in Snowsports and have been part of the committee for two years. Somehow I managed to win an outstanding student award in my first year (#proud), and I am now manifesting a 1st for my degree. Outside of uni I love going to see live music and can often be found squished at the front of a festival or event! I’m also a fan of the Saints rugby club so if your ever in need of a friend to watch a game with, I’m your girl! Please help me to help you by giving me any suggestions/feedback/issues you have regarding my role, I can't fix what I don't know is broken. You can contact me on [email protected] or if you'd prefer to remain anonymous you can fill out my form here - look forward to hearing from you!
