Dover Court - Vote for your HSC

By sophiebk 29 Oct 2018

The HSC is made up of other students living in your accommodation who volunteer their time to help make sure your voices are heard and you have the best possible experience in halls.

This Wednesday voting will open to all students to confirm your Dover Court HSC for the year. 

You will be asked vote on whether or not you are happy for the current committee to represent you. To help you do this the HSC have written a manifesto to outline details of what they plan to do to this year – from making changes in halls to exciting trips and events.

The link to vote will be sent to you via email on Wednesday - please take the time to read over their manifesto before then.

Dover Court Manifesto

Meet the Committee members:

Miguel – A cool guy who loves controversy and expects to spice up the HSC’s committee. I am studying law and I joined the HSC to make Dover Court students enjoy themselves during the stressful times at university. My goal is to break social awkwardness during party time. Lots of hugs and love.

Keira - A chill cool gal who enjoys wine Wednesday’s and HSC Tuesday’s. I am studying law and joined HSC to impart my knowledge and wisdom on the muggles.
