I’m Jake Verity and I’m your President for the year and I just wanted to say what an absolute privilege it is to be in charge of such a fantastic society, with such a great committee and amazing members.
As a Society, we seek to do more than just make events for students. We believe that a good, quality student experience has a massive impact on student performance, on students futures and most importantly their mental health and well-being.
We have a great team ethos as a committee to raise unprecedented amounts of money for local charities, to ensure our sports teams are accessible for all but also some of the most successful at the University.
Put simply, we want to enrich and enhance students experience at University and provide support networks for them to extend and challenge themselves as both Geographers and individuals.
I personally know that my student experience so far has been shaped by GeogSoc and with us having a fantastic, exciting and hard-working committee, this year is going to be highly successful.
Thanks for reading, and here’s to a successful year!
