The Full-Time Officer elections at BU are right around the corner, with applications for candidates closing today! Nerve Now spoke to the leaving SUBU officers to understand more about the roles and why these elections are important to students.
What are the FTO elections?
The Full-Time Officer elections are where BU students and graduates can apply for one of the following roles: President, Vice-President Education, Vice-President Student Opportunities and Vice-President Welfare and Community. They each serve a term of one year and are responsible for representing every student at BU. They work with thousands of student volunteers within Clubs and Societies, Student Reps, and Union Officers, but they also have individual responsibilities specific to their roles.
“Student elections are important because the Students' Union needs to be represented by students who other students believe in.” – Current SUBU FTOs
