Samuel Weir“As a third-year economics student who juggles study, a job, and life, I understand the challenges that students face in day-to-day life. I'm passionate about addressing and discussing ways to improve the student experience and make the School of Economics more approachable, adaptable, and student-friendly. My experiences have made amplifying the voices of my peers a real passion of mine, and I am excited to engage with peers and staff within the School to ensure that all students can make the most of their time at university and have their voice heard.

As secretary of the SSLC, I will work to represent, uplift, and energise the student body throughout 2023. Don’t hesitate to send me an email if I can help in any way!”
