We have a new Students’ Union Team for the Academic Year 2021/22 and they have already started working behind the scenes to put plans in place to make it a special year. Let’s get to know them a bit better shall we?

First up, we have the President Colin Kearney. Colin, who was last year’s Vice President for Welfare, had this to say about undertaking his new role;

“I’m so thankful for the opportunity to represent the students of GMIT! Hopefully the year ahead will be far more normal and we can be here to welcome you back to campus. Any student that is ever in need of assistance can give any of the team a quick email or call and we will do all we can to help.
Thank you..”

Next up, we have the Deputy President for Education, a former student on our Letterfrack Campus, Ricarda Bolle.

“I am delighted to have the chance to represent our students across all five campuses on all academic matters. If there is ever anything you are unsure about or need some help with, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can be sure that we, in the Students Union, will do everything we can to help you make the best out of your time at GMIT”

The Vice President for Welfare is next up, with Emily Walsh taking on the challenge.

College is a life experience that is unique to every student and as Welfare Officer, I want to do the absolute best I can to constantly improve the experience for you! I understand that not only is the transition into college life extremely hard, but that there are also challenges around every corner.”
“These challenges and issues faced are also unique to each student but I want you to know that you will not have to face these issues alone. Whether you need help with matters such as; finance, accommodation, mental health, and sexual health or whether you just really need someone to talk to, please don’t ever hesitate to contact me if there’s anything I can do to help. After all, I am here for YOU”

And finally, we have the Vice President for the Mayo Campus Emily McGrory

I am delighted to introduce myself, my name is Emily McGrory and I will be taking up the position of GMITSU VP for the Mayo Campus. I look forward to meeting you all hopefully on campus throughout the year and getting to know all of the students. I am passionate about making the GMIT college experience for students unforgettable. Each and every one of the students will be my number 1 priority! Please don’t ever be afraid to contact me with anything! Let’s make the college experience for everyone safe, fun and unforgettable”

The new team are working all Summer if you need anything in the meantime, you can email suoffice@gmit.ie and we will direct you to the right team member based on your query.
