Hi my name is Benjamin Nguyen, I am entering my second year of my double in commerce/law and will be your VP Finance for 2021. As VP Finance my job is to ensure the UOWLSS runs as efficiently as possible while maximizing profits. I am a student and the SWS Campus and will be acting as a first-year mentor this year. My hobbies include football and going to the gym, so if you ever see me on campus and need help or just want to talk about football, don’t be afraid and reach out. I am always happy to hear feedback and suggestions from other students as to how the UOWLSS can better support students through their studies and broader lives. I look forward to working with you to help make our uni lives as memorable as possible.

Hi, my name is Jacob May, and I am the UOW LSS Vice President for Education for the 2021 term. My pronouns are he/him.

I am currently completing my fourth year of a Law/Arts double degree, majoring in Japanese. My interests include linguistics and the way language shapes the law. I am also currently studying Norwegian, and wish to go on exchange in order to improve my proficiency.

Recently, I have been involved in administrative operations at Port Kembla Hospital, tutored Japanese, attended leadership bootcamps, and conducted research and related tasks within the Law Faculty.

As your VP (Education) for 2021, and in celebration of the LSS’ 30th anniversary, I wish to bring you all a variety of new skill-building opportunities to complement the knowledge gained in class. We have some crash-courses in the works, as well as some collaborations with the Competitions Portfolio.
As the leader of the LSS’ Wellbeing and Equity initiatives, I also hope to open up the many avenues of support available at UOW, through First Year Mentoring, the First Year Guide, Wellbeing Wednesday and Wellbeing Brunches. As a society, we have also renewed our commitment to diversity and inclusion, through modifying our procedures, and becoming listed under ACON’s Welcome Here Project.

If anyone has any questions about the Education portfolio or just want to chat, please do not hesitate to reach out. I wish everyone a year full of productivity and success!

I am your mature age student representative I am currently in my third year of Bachelor of laws. My interest are family and corporate law. I came back to University as a mature age student and so I understand the challenges that students may face returning to University after so many years away from any type of educational institution.
Mature age students may feel like they may not fit, being a lot older than most student, however speaking from my experience here at UOW, everyone has been fantastic. Us oldies can learn a thing or two from the young students and vice versa.
My role Is to represent mature age students,  raise any concerns students may have , bring ideas to the table to improve study life for students who make be juggling between study and life commitments.
