Liv Heininger

President - Liv Heininger (och23)

My role as President is simply to make CUGS even better than it's ever been before - and I fully intend to do so! We've got loads of plans for new events as well as keeping the old ones going strong! I'll be directing our efforts and coordinating between roles, although this year we're really trying to work as a team. You'll be hearing lots from me over the next year but I'd love to hear from you as well. Any comments or ideas you have are always welcome :)

Alex Jackman

Green - Alex Jackman (ajj47)

Hi,I'm Alex, a third-year geographer at Fitz. I'll be nagging other committee members to consider the ethical and environmental implications of their events, trying to persuade cynics (and even non-geographers) that such considerations are worthwhile, and hopefully running some engaging and entertaining green events. Outside of geography, my hobbies include rowing, cycling to rowing, cycling from rowing, and thinking about rowing.
