MEET THE CLO'S A N T H O N Y

J O F F E

Having been involved in student groups for much of my undergraduate degree, I thought I’d take the opportunity to see how student groups function from an administrative perspective. Getting to meet the executives and members of the student groups makes everything worthwhile. I’m looking forward to working with each of you in this role and if you ever see me around MAZE, please come and say hello! Anthony's Office Hours: Monday to Wednesday: 9am - 5pm Thursday: 1pm - 5pm

M U S A

I am so honoured to be looking after some of you this year. I have been involved in student groups since my first year at MQU. I decided that I really wanted to work on the other side of student groups, and be able to help groups as much as student groups helped my group last year. I look forward to working with you over the next year! Taylor's Office Hours: Tuesday - Thursday: 9:00am 5:00pm Friday: 12:00pm - 4:00pm

Having experienced the life of an executive in previous years, this role has certainly showcased the administrative aspects of running groups. I am always open to new ideas and seeing the success of my student groups makes everything worth it. Always happy to have a conversation and let’s make it a great 2019! Musa's Office Hours: Tuesday - Thursday 9:00am - 5:00pm Friday: 9:00am - 1.00pm
