Hi everyone, I’m Priya and I’m running to be your new RUMS Events VP! From making our first friends in Freshers to enjoying a curry with your team at Come Dine with Me, RUMS events are a huge part of our life at medical school, and I would love to help make these times as exciting and as memorable as possible.

Being on the subcommittee this year has given me an insight into what goes on behind the scenes, for example in liaising with venues and promoting events. Next year, I would build on these past experiences to bring about some fantastic events with a particular emphasis on inter-year mixing to further strengthen our RUMS community. The students themselves, for me, are the highlight of any night, and so I would do my best to encourage everyone to get involved by keeping prices within our student budgets. Moreover, as a big fan of ‘organised fun’, my priority would be to ensure that events run smoothly and are well coordinated, without taking away from any of the enjoyment!

With your help, I hope that we can create and share some special RUMS moments. Please reach out if you have any questions!

Having been part of RUMS for almost 2 years now, I have taken an active part in all aspects of it. I think the most important part of becoming an events VP is attending events. By being part of the Events Committee I have done that, both the good and the bad. I’ve seen what makes an event successful and what doesn’t. Hence, I pledge to maintain the current flagship RUMS events that have brought us together but also improve them, increasing affordability by pushing for increased sponsorship.

If elected, I have three other objectives. Firstly, to many the end of the university year is underwhelming. I would solve this by hosting a final Summer Ball that would aim to give students closure for the year.

Secondly, one aspect I think missing from RUMS is charity. The creation of a “Charity Week” and fundraising events would work wonders to bring together our medical school. For example, we would have a homeless drive or an auction.

Finally, I want to give the student body a choice as to what events we put on - it makes sense for those who attend, to have a say in what, where and when they attend.

-With my experience on the RUMS Events committee, as VP I will maintain the quality and quantity of events for students across the medical school, such as the multitude of Freshers' Fortnight events, Refreshers Rave, Take me Out, iBSc Boat Ball and RUMS Dine With Me.

-I hope to make events as affordable as possible, whilst maximising drinks tokens - ensuring value for money.

-Since the Fresher's Fortnight events might be the first for many, I want to create open and friendly events, and will encourage my committee to act as another helpful point of contact for incoming first years. This will involve a meet-and-greet of the committee at the Freshers' Fair to make events more inviting.

-I would like to introduce optional feedback forms after events too, so that we can keep improving events and making sure your opinions are heard.

-I hope to strengthen communication with other RUMS VPs, for example by integrating more welfare components into Fresher's events and working closely with Finance VP to help get you the most out of your student loan!
