My name is Pauraic Renaghan and I am the DkIT Students’ Union President for the coming year. To all the students that are returning to DkIT, I would like to welcome you back and also thank you for voting me your SU President for the year. To all the incoming students, I would firstly like to congratulate you on making it to DkIT. Having completed 3 unbelievable years in DkIT I can tell you that you are in for an incredibly fun but rewarding time here. I am looking forward to working alongside you all over the year.
The President and the Vice-President here in the Students’ Union are your elected representatives. We are here to look after your needs throughout the year. Our office is located in the student services corridor near the MPC (sports hall) and we welcome you to call in at any time. If you have an issue with any academic, financial or other needs, feel free to contact us in person, by phone or e-mail.
As well as representing the members of our Union at a personal level, it is our duty to represent you nationally also. DkITSU are members of the Union of Students in Ireland (USI). Through working with USI we will be looking to lobby the government and local politicians to support 3rd level education and stop putting barriers between us and our education. The 2017/18 academic year is going to be of significant importance in both DkIT and in Ireland. We are going to hold referendums on both the issue of a United Ireland and on the 8th amendment here in the college and we look forward to hearing all your opinions on two vitally important topics.
Finally I would just like to remind students that we the DkITSU are here for you. This is your SU and we want you to have your say in what happens throughout the year. We encourage students to get involved with the SU as much as possible. I would also strongly advise all students to be as active as possible in our many clubs and societies here at DkIT. The clubs and societies are great for a student’s social life as well as developing numerous skills and talents. Your time here in DkIT will fly by before you know it, so get out there and try something new.
I’m looking forward to working with you all this year.
