Philippa is our President, and as a BA/BCom student majors in History, Psychology, Management and International Business. Addicted to all things travel, when she’s not leading the team she’s documenting her stunning adventures and/or planning the next one (we’re low-key hoping she’ll take us along on the next trip).
As Educational Vice-President, Lisa’s time is often spent studying towards her BA/LLB (majoring in English and Politics, with a special interest in Chinese foreign policy) or helping others out with their academic endeavours. The self-professed meme queen is also a massive fan of highlighters and alcohol, and consuming all chocolate treats in sight.
Georgina makes sure everything runs (note how we don’t say smoothly, because nothing worth having is ever easy). An Arts student majoring in Criminology and Sociology, her role as Administrative Vice-President includes ensuring our stock of Mrs Higgins cookies is never severely depleted, and victimising people over email to get things done.
We didn’t actually know Uday was a real person until he showed up half-way through O-week to prove he wasn’t just a Facebook catfish, but lo and behold here we are! Majoring in Psychology, he loves football and golf (literally his Tinder bio), he’s the man to look for during all our sporting events this year (and maybe on Tinder).
Some say he’s half human, half legend; but mostly we think he’s full of it (<3) Majoring in roasting his peers and being a model, Mafoa also finds time in his busy schedule of being “the man” to study for his BA/Bcom conjoint in Politics, Management and Commercial Law, while also holding down the fort as Maori and Pasifika Officer.
One of our Events Officers – Natalie – loves cats, cooking and the fact that she’s a Capricorn, almost as much as she enjoys beefing up our bar tabs! A BA/Bcom student majoring in Geography, Marketing and Information Management, she’s one half of the reason why you won’t want to miss any of our events this year.
The other half of why you will attend every event possible takes the form of Andrew – a Philosophy and Politics major, he asks the important questions, like why can’t we have a real tiger at our stein ‘Rumble in the Jungle’? A show stopper on his own, he also likes to spend his time being simultaneously picky and having absolutely no standards for the food he consumes.
We are very highly suspicious that Emma is the human personification of all things sweet in this world, which is why she makes a great Equity Officer! Don’t let the accent throw you off – she left her native Chicago hometown to take advantage of our (relatively) reasonably priced tertiary education, which has meant she can (sort of) afford to study Politics and Logic & Computation. HER GREAT GRANDPA ALSO INVENTED CHOCOLATE FISH ISN’T THAT AMAZING she has chocolate appreciation in her blood folks.
An enthusiast of making as much noise as possible, Jimmy also helps to make sure our accounts can afford our frivolous spending as Vice Treasurer (and trust us when we say we don’t make that an easy task!) His BA/BCom conjoint in Economics, Education, Accounting and Commercial law don’t get in the way of the mad love he has for the Chiefs though, or his pride as a Tauranga boy.
Bryan is the reason our website looks flash and our graphics aren’t made on Microsoft Paint – but before his role as Media Officer, he spent 14 months working at Walt Disney World, Florida, where they almost let him be Anakin Skywalker. We’re not too sure why he even bothered coming home, but has since carried on his study in English, Classics and Ancient History.
The person behind all those cheesy Facebook posts is of course a Law student (because only they would think those puns were hilarious). Her majors in Sociology and Economics help to keep her sane whilst also competent enough to be trusted to send official emails as the Communications Officer.
Keep this on the down-low, but Anna doesn’t even go here anymore! An Accounting and Commercial law graduate, she’s killing time hanging with the cool kids before she heads off on an OE. We can’t blame her either; I mean, ONLY doing a Bcom? Why would you do that to yourself? As Treasurer, she’s the only reason why we can afford balloons at O-Week and print on AS colour shirts.
