President: chloe steadman
Hey everyone, my name’s Chloe and I’m your president for the year!
I’m a Second Year Geologist, and I’ve lived in Yorkshire all my life- yes, the North is better! As President, I work to ensure that the committee is organised and provides you with great talks, socials and a generally enjoyable uni experience… you’ll thank me later!
Over the past year I’ve made such a sound group of friends through RocSoc, who’ve made way to so many… interesting… nights out. Did someone mention Tequila?
It’s going to be fab to welcome you all to RocSoc, and can’t wait to make your first year as amazing as mine was!
Treasurer: MATTHEW WILLIAMSON
Hey everyone! My name's Matt, I am a second year Geophysicist and I am the Treasurer for RocSoc this year. My role is to ensure we have enough money to be able to go forward with all the brilliant events, socials and trips we have planned . This is going to be one of the best years yet and I'm looking forward to meeting you all during freshers and beyond!
General Secretary: sarah tatlock
Hi I'm Sarah, the general secretary. Rocsoc was the first society that welcomed us with open arms and it was a great chance to meet the other first year geoloigists and also those from other years - that's why I wanted to be on the committee and to be part of the community that runs great socials, talks and trips and makes all the first years feel welcome to the geology course and life at leeds. As a geologist I wasn't really sure of career paths I'd like to take either and Rocsoc has helped me get ideas and can help build contacts for the future.
