Who can I talk to?
My name is Niamh Halpenny and I am your old and new Vice President for Education and Deputy President of MSU. Yes, you may have guessed this is my second year in the job representing the students of Maynooth and do you know what, I F**kin love it
First of all welcome back to the oldies, I am sure you are all gagging to get back to Maynooth in September and of course congratulations to the newbies or FRESHERS on getting into college, the hardest part is complete and all that is left is fun, exams and procrastination.
So back to me, 23 years old and I am an Arts graduate of English and Geography from thelittle village of Nobber ( YES it’s a place) in Contae na Mhi and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing my time as a student was here and it was a lot to do with the students union which you will get to know very well over the next couple of weeks. If you do not know what I am about well I am pretty much the less sexy side of the Maynooth experience I deal with mainly exams, assignments, and class representatives and so on but after 5pm, I swear I am good craic.
GET INVOLVED! Represent your class and be part of our student Senate. If you are on the student senate then you are pretty much my boss, I am answerable to all the students here in Maynooth but our senators are the ones that keep all the officers and me on our toes and make sure we are doing our job to the best of our abilities. So if you are into politics and you think you can stand up for the students of Maynooth then JOIN IT, keep an eye out because nominations will be opening very soon or just pop into the SU and I can give you all the information you need
Therefore, if you are worried about exams, or are thinking in your head ‘what in god’s name is compensation’ I am your woman, I know all the suss so don’t be afraid to pop into me anything throughout the year, college can be a scary time but we are here to help you through it even if I am just a friendly face to talk to I don’t mind, whatever your need I am here.
Always remember that we the students union are here always and the only reason we are here is because of you as a student body, never feel alone and never EVER feel confused.
I am so excited to meet all of you very soon during fresher’s fortnight (GET YOUR TICKETS) so stay safe, have fun and I have no doubt you will not regret choosing Maynooth
