Don’t fancy venturing outdoors? Then why not scare yourself silly by watching some of our favourite Halloween films?
1. Hocus Pocus
3. Sleepy Hollow
4. An American Werewolf in London
5. The Exorcist
Whatever you’re up to, we hope you have a spooktacular and safe Halloween!
Want to know who was chosen to help lead YOUR Students’ Union over the next year? Here are all the results from tonight’s incredible Michaelmas Term Election:
Postgraduate Students’ Officer:
Mahamid Ahmed is your newly elected Postgraduate Students’ Officer with 418 votes. This year’s race for Postgraduate Students’ Officer was a tough competition - every one of your votes counted! The Postgraduate Students’ Officer represents all LSE postgraduates in the Students’ Union and the School. He will campaign and work with the School on the issues affecting postgraduate students, plan events and projects for postgraduates, and is an active member of the Student Executive Committee.
Postgraduate Research Students’ Officer:
Salma Raheeem was elected to represent all research students at LSESU and the School. She will work to improve academic and social development for postgraduate research students.
Postgraduate Student Trustee:
Scott Gammon was elected your Postgraduate Student Trustee member. The Postgraduate Student Trustee represents the views of all students at the Trustee Board, which assumes ultimate legal and financial responsibility for LSESU and oversees its strategy and governance. He will help ensure that everything the Students’ Union does is for the benefit of its members – LSE students.
BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) Students’ Officer:
Samiha Begum is your BME Students’ Officer - a brand new position for Michaelmas Term 2014. The BME Students’ Officer represents members and campaigns on issues that relate to BME liberation. She will work to promote equality and inclusiveness within the Students’ Union, LSE and other levels.
Mature and Part-time Students’ Officer:
Laura Mertsching was re-elected to be your Mature and Part-time Students’ Officer. Laura will represent mature and part-time students at LSE and is an active member of Student Executive Committee.
James Wurr and Tooba Mushtaq are your Academic Board student members. The Academic Board is the highest academic committee in the School, and is the most important body with regards to your course and teaching, learning and academic standards. The committee is chaired by the School’s Director, Craig Calhoun, and, in theory, all permanent academic staff can attend and vote – it is the UGM of academia! It’s this committee that decides things like class sizes, admissions criteria and scholarships. Elected student members of the Academic Board are responsible for representing students’ views, raising concerns from across departments with the Board, and work with the School on the academic issues students care the most about.
Court of Governors:
Tom Glen Harry was elected with the most votes to the Court of Governors, along with Kabu Senapitak, Katie Budd, Mahatir Pasha and Megan Tretheway. The Court of Governors is where Governors of the School meet and discuss key strategic matters and policy areas, such as widening participation, the student experience and quality of research. These elected students represent the views of other LSE students at the Court.
Emily Haimeed and Jon Foster are your new NUS Delegates for 2014-15. NUS Delegates represent the views of all LSE students at the NUS National Conference in April. They are responsible for raising issues and motions at the conference and for feeding back to students what happened.
General Course President:
Lisa Han is your General Course President. She will be the lead representative for General Course students at LSESU and the School. He/she organises events and activities to help General Course students feel more involved at LSE.
A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR NEWLY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES, AND WELL DONE TO ALL THE CANDIDATES WHO TOOK PART.
