My name is Paddy Duffy and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Dundalk IT and also to thank all returning students for electing me as your Vice President for the academic year 2016/2017. I feel honoured and privileged to be given the chance to represent you all again and will do so throughout the next year with honesty, hard work and great endeavour. I am committed to working hard to be the best I can be for all students across the campus. My role as Vice President breaks down into two categories, Welfare and Entertainment.
With Welfare, I shall be available everyday to help students with all issues they may encounter. If you may find yourself struggling to settle in, finding college or personal life tough or day to day problems no matter how big or small, please don’t hesitate to call into the Students’ Union office or pick up the phone day or night to contact me.
In addition, I will be promoting existing college and local services, such as continuing to promote the free STI screening clinic which is available at Louth County Hospital. I will be promoting positive mental health throughout the campus which will be seen in monthly Mental Health workshops and talks. We will continue to work with and support the Mature Student society.
On Entertainment I will continue to provide enjoyable college nights out, nights that are as affordable as possible for all students, both here in Dundalk and throughout surrounding areas with Balls and mystery bus tours. Both day and night there will be performances from a variety of entertainers, bands and DJ’s from within our campus and outside. We welcome students to use our Common Room upstairs in the Hospitality Building.
The Student Union is made on behalf of the students and I will ensure to look after each one and build on what the previous Student Union members have done. This is your Union, your Voice. We welcome all input and our doors will always be open.
Looking forward to seeing you around the College.
