Max 

Hi everyone, my name's Max (he/him), I’m an Accounting and Finance graduate having spent my three years as a student getting fully involved with University life here at LSBU. I began my LSBU journey back in September 2018. I'd moved to London from North Wales and was excited for the journey that lay ahead. I never expected that I could be President of our Students’ Union three years later. I’ve had a truly life changing experience here at LSBU and hope to spend my year as President helping to pass on the transformational experience that I’ve had, to as many of our students as possible.

I've been here for three years, and I feel that I've seen both the good and the bad side of LSBU. I've been fully involved with university life and understand first-hand the problems we all face as students. The last academic year has been really tough for so many of us and I want to work with university teams and departments to improve the parts of our experience that are lacking. So that as we emerge from this pandemic, we can create a far greater university than it ever was before.

How I got involved in the SU

I've held several roles throughout my time at university and have a great flavour of what is already underway and what could make things even better.

My experience at LSBU includes the following:

  • Student Ambassador
  • Residential Life Ambassador (McLaren House)
  • Business Solution Centre, Student Advisor
  • Accounting and Finance Course Rep
  • President of the Men's Football Team
  • University Student Governor
  • Chair of Union Council

These roles have given me a far greater insight into student life at LSBU. I've worked with various teams across the campus. I know what we're doing right and what can be improved. I want to use my experience so far to push for a more inclusive and more diverse university, a university that gives us all a life-changing experience and a university that allows us to reach our full potential. I've had a life-changing experience during my three years here and want to show you that even though times are tough now, together, we can get through this and achieve more.

    What's the big idea?

    Whilst we have all lost out on that crucial university experience during the pandemic, I'm sure many of us (especially 2nd years onwards) recognise the good things that have come out of this experience. Recording all our classes has been immensely useful for all students, whether or not you watch the live class, watch them later, watch them again or use them for revision. Having 24/7 access to all our classes has been a game-changer and is essential for studying in the modern-day.

    How will it benefit students?

    In terms of on-campus lectures: The university has been promising for years that lectures will be recorded and are still saying that now. We need to at least start taking concrete steps toward this happening. There is no better time than now when the campus is closed, and the lecture halls aren't being used. Even if this is expensive, the university needs to ensure this happens now. Enough is enough! As soon as lectures start taking place on campus again, they must be recorded. This is an absolute must and is required if we're going to keep up with modern universities.

    Updates

    Following early conversations around lecture capture on campus, I'm seeing many problems and no solutions. There does seem to be resistance to this kind of infrastructure on multiple levels within the group.
