LAW COLLEGE OFFICER
Míde Nic Fhionnlaoich
Heya, I’m Míde and I’m your Law College Officer. I am a third year Law with Social Justice student. I first got involved with the SU as Irish Language Officer and in the past two years I’ve seen the power behind the student voice.
As Law College Officer I want to ensure that voice is heard, and you get the most out of your time in UCD both socially and academically. If you're having trouble with your degree or anything that's happening in Sutherland, don't hesitate to get in touch.
Haigh a chairde, is mise Míde, bhur Oifigeach Dlí. Is Mac Léinn triú bliana mé ag déanamh staidéar ar Dlí le Ceartas Sóisialta. Thosaigh mé amach le Aontas na Mac Léinn mar Oifigeach na Gaeilge, agus le dhá bhlian anuas chonaic mé an cumhacht atá ag glór na Mac Léinn.
Mar Oifigeach dlí táim ag iarradh cinntiú go gcloistear glór na Mac Léinn, agus mbainfidh tú an méid is mó tairbhe as do chuid ama I UCD, go hacadúil agus go sóisialta. Má tá fadhb ar bith agat le do chéim nó tada bainteach leis an méid atá ar siúl i Sutherland, bí ag caint liom.
ARTS, HUMANITIES & SOCIAL SCIENCE COLLEGE OFFICER
I’m Lauren Maunsell and I’ve been elected as one of your College Officers for Arts, Humanities and Social Science! I’m heading into my 2nd year studying History and Politics so you’ll always see me in Newman - don’t be afraid to say hi if you pass me! (I promise I’m very approachable despite what my ‘walking to lectures face’ might suggest!!).
I’m an artist and I’m also involved in organisations such as SpunOut and ONE. I’m extremely friendly and always ready to help anybody, listen to people and provide a voice for the students.
Both myself and Sophie hope to continue the office hours introduced by your previous College Officers. This means we will have a specific place and time that either of us will be available to meet with students every week (updates coming soon!) I highly encourage you to pop in if you’re struggling with anything or even if you just want a chat don’t be shy! I’d love to hear from you guys! And if you can’t meet us during these hours you can contact us via email!

I am passionate about education, student representation, mental health and some of the current problems we are facing such as the rent protests and how to deal with the situation of Covid-19.
This year, office hours will be available once again so if you want to share your ideas, need advice or someone to talk to, I’ll be here if you want to reach out. As a former Class Rep, I would also be delighted to give advice to anyone who is interested in becoming a Class Rep or wants to organise class trips, nights out or hoodies.
If you have any queries or want to get in touch, you can reach out to me if you see me running around (probably drinking capri-suns and wearing pink headphones) or via instagram (ahsstagram) or email:. Thank you all so much for this great opportunity to represent our university.
