Is this for me?

Yes! Any student can nominate themselves for one of these positions. We want Brookes Union to be as representative of the student body as possible, and for that we need you. It doesn't matter whether you love what we do, or whether you think it could be improved, this is your chance to make your mark. As an Officer you will gain invaluable new experiences and skills. 

Being the Vice President provided me with opportunities that I could never have gained in any other graduate level role.
