Hi there! My name is Liz Nash, and I’m the President of the Arts and Humanities Students’ Council. I couldn’t be happier to work with a team of 50 others to create a fabulous student experience for everyone in the faculty. Council creates both academic and social events: for example, every year we run essay clinics and course review sessions as well as directing an annual play and bringing in an internationally-renowned speaker.
Often I am asked the question, “Why did you choose Western?” Looking back, it’s hard to pick just one reason. Maybe it was because it felt like home; maybe it was because of how friendly everyone was; or maybe it was because campus looks like Hogwarts.
In my first year I became involved in the Leadership and Mentorship Program (LAMP) where I worked to create campus-wide events for first year students. During this time I caught the “volunteering bug” where I realized how great it felt to be involved with the campus community. Not only could I help other students, but I could help myself grow personally as well.
Over the years I’ve continued to volunteer and say “yes” to as many opportunities as possible. At Western I became the person I always wanted to be. For prospective students, maybe Western can help you achieve your goals as well! I encourage you to reach out and come to campus to see what we have to offer.
If you ever have any questions, feel free to drop by the council office in the International and Graduate Affairs Building, ON20D
