Vice President Activities 

lauren bell

I am the lead on Student Activities and Employability. In today’s workplace, a degree is not enough, to make you stand out from the crowd.

I am responsible for making sure that you graduate with the experience and skills you need to enhance your student experience and your future!

I support societies, through which you can meet people with the same interests as you, and even lead one - we have over 130 societies so why not Get Involved!

I lead on Freshers week with your Freshers Welcome Team and make sure that new students feel happy, safe and part of Northumbria.

I work with staff in the Union and the University to develop events, support research and lobby for things that will benefit your experience and make sure we are delivering what YOU want to see and what will help YOU with your future plans.
