My name is Mikey Ennis and I am your Entertainments Officer this year. First of all, I want to give a big welcome to all students, new and old, to WIT. I hope everyone had a great Summer and is ready for an even better nine months in college. It’s definitely going to be a big year in terms of events and activities so I hope ye are all ready! As your Entertainments Officer I want to make this year the biggest and best year that WIT has yet seen, but this is definitely only possible with your help! I want you to feel free to come and talk to me about some event or activity you would like to bring/see go on around the college, this way I can make sure students get what they want and that everybody enjoys the year ahead! Also, I will always be there to help organise class parties, mystery tours, day trips etc.. if my help is needed, no problem at all, give me a shout, it’s my job!
I have the pleasure of organising Fresher’s week and Raise and Give (RAG) week but there will be many more events that a huge hype will surround! The college experience can be daunting, especially for first years but it’s also an experience that you will never forget, so make the most of it and go out and socialise with people when you have the chance because you definitely will not regret it, trust me! Every year there is an Entertainments crew made for people to join if it interests them. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the union, with events around all campuses and a great chance to get experience working with many different people! Make sure to let me know if you’re interested in helping out, it will be an unreal experience!
On another note, if you have got any issues that I or any of the other Student Union officers can help you with throughout the year please don’t hesitate to get in contact or call into the Students’ Union offices on both campuses, we are always there to help with any issue no matter how big or small it may be. I wish you all the best for the year ahead be it in exams, with assignments or any other college related activities. Make sure that you make the best of your college experience, you’ve only got one shot (in most cases), but also don’t forget, it’s never too late to improve it! Lastly, I’m looking forward to the year ahead, I hope it will be a great year for everyone and I hope I can help to improve it.
