Following a competitive campaign, Student Union (SU) representatives for the year 2022 have been elected by the student body at Southwark College, and the results are now in. The College is pleased to announce the following new appointees:
Mary Ogundairo, Student Union President
Tia Darling-Moore, Health and Safety Officer
Fabio Sebaduka, Vice President and Welfare Officer
The run-up to the election included participants writing a manifesto, sharing posters around the College, and speeches from the candidates and candidates personally reaching out to students to gain votes. Southwark students had up to a week following the speeches from candidates to vote, and new appointees were revealed later in the week.
Mary Ogundauno, SU President, said: "I am delighted to have been appointed to this role and would like to thank everyone who voted for me. I look forward to being a voice for all students and making the student journey at Southwark College a memorable and enriched experience. "

I have always wanted to get involved in supporting students and will now be able to work with the Student Services team to promote wellbeing and raise awareness of the support available to all students at the College."
The candidates who have been elected will now join their fellow students as members of the NUS National Conference and Student Union Council. In addition, the newly elected members will work closely with course representatives to put students' voices forward to the faculty members and the governing body.
