Robbie himself has been proactive about this “major problem” and has got in contact with Nicola Leddy, the students union marketing and communications coordinator.

For Robbie this is all about finding out what students want and keeping up with them.

Not only is Robbie asking the students exactly what they want he also has a few ideas of his own.

Robbie thinks a text service will help student participation on campus but also voting numbers in elections and referenda. He mentioned the recent college view survey which noted the low level of information students seem to receive as regards voting.

Another thing Robbie wants to do as education officer is a “compensation guideline” to help students who don’t know how it works.

All the services the college provides are also something Robbie wants to hilglight. He feels that students need to get more out of them.
