MEET FATMA, YOUR 2020 FACULTY OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING REP


I got involved with the Guild in 2017, joining as a member of the First Year Committee in my first year at uni because I was looking for opportunities to get involved at Curtin.

I wanted to engage with students and meet heaps of new people, while learning more about the Guild and enjoying my time as a student.

MEET CONNIE, YOUR 2020 FACULTY OF HUMANITIES REP


I am able to make a difference through my role as 2020 Humanities Representative by reminding myself of my goals, having a plan to achieve those goals and remaining dedicated to that plan.

MEET CHRIS, YOUR 2020 VICE PRESIDENT - EDUCATION
