Hey, my name is Ben Dunlea and I’m your Entertainments Officer for 2017/18. I’m from Cork and have two years of a Computer Science degree left after my time here on the Students’ Union.
My job this year is to make sure you get to experience everything UCC and Cork City have to offer. This year I will be organizing anything and everything Ents related from Freshers Week right up to the end of the year. This includes Refreshers Week, RAG Week, Arts Ball, Christmas Day and many many more. One thing I will say is, GET INVOLVED! There is so many clubs and societies here in UCC for you to join and you’ll find so many people who share the same passions as you. Getting involved in life at UCC is the best decision I have made since I came to college. I ran for Ents Rep of my course in first year and then went on to join the Ents Crew a few weeks later. From there I fell in love with the entertainment industry and I am now lucky enough to say I do this for a living. Run for Class Rep or Ents Rep and work with me in organizing your class parties or join the Ents Crew and be on the other side of the events. No matter how you do it, just get involved and make the most of your time here! Trust me you won’t regret it. If you have any questions regarding absolutely anything Ents related or just about life here in UCC just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Students’ Union are here for you, we’re here to ensure you have the best time possible in your time in UCC. You have an amazing adventure ahead of you, I truly hope you enjoy every last second of it!
