Jenny O’Connor

Hi everyone,

My name is Jenny O’Connor and I am your Events and Engagement officer for 2021/2022 and I am really looking forward to it and will make the most of the year that we have! 

I would like to welcome all the new students attending W.I.T and may your time in W.I.T be the best days of your life. To our returning students, welcome back and I hope that you are ready for another great year. It will be so nice to see friendly faces around campus again. To all our new students attending W.I.T, I would say get involved in as much as you possibly can as I’m the events and engagement officer and I will be trying my best to make it a year not to forget. I am setting up an ents and media crew to help with all the  big events and campaigns that WITSU provides to you throughout the year. Here there is an opportunity to make friends and meet people from all over the country, plus free pizza will make it worth your while!

In my role I will be informing students on what activities and campaigns that are running throughout the year. I will also be the one organising or helping in organising a lot of the events that will be happening on campus. My two main projects are Fresher’s week and Raise and Give week (RAG Week) these are the two biggest campaigns I will be working on but there will be plenty more smaller events that will happen also. My role is to get out and talk to students and see what ye the students want for events within the college.  Another part of my role is to try to get as many companies as I can to sponsor WITSU so we can offer as much as possible to our students.

I am really looking forward to seeing you all over the campuses and hopefully getting to work with some of you within the ents and media crew. If you have anything you would like to ask me don’t hesitate to give me a shout at eventsandengagement@witsu.ie.

Best wishes,

Jenny O’Connor.
