Hi, I’m Matt, a third year BSc Geography student from Trevelyan College, and the current President of Durham University Geographical Society (DUGS). I’m excited to expand the academic side of DUGS this year, so having a focus on the different pathways that Geography can take you, as well as the different opportunities that are available across your degree as well.
Abi & Flo: Hi everyone! We're Abi & Flo and are your returning social secs from last year. We can’t wait to organise fun socials and plan the famous annual geography ball. We also can’t wait to welcome anyone and everyone into the DUGS community!
Esther: Hi, I'm Esther and I am joining Abi & Flo as one of your social secs for this year. I’m really looking to being part of organising the social calendar of DUGS. We have lots of exciting things planned for the freshers and refreshers social and of course, the ball in the 2nd term which will be bigger and better than ever!
Hi, I'm Charlotte & I'm the Publicity Officer for this year. I hope to achieve greater visual consistency across our social media platforms, whilst increasing society visibility through physical advertising where possible. I’m also keen to maintain the great advertising and communications work last year in the run up to our infamous Geography Ball!
Anna: Hi, I’m Anna and I’m one of your Vice-Presidents! I'm looking forward to helping develop the DUGS Mentor Scheme, and encouraging more regular mentor-mentee meet-ups. We’re also excited to hopefully run more talks and events related to careers and life beyond uni. Last but not least, we can’t wait for the annual Geography ball and for lots of exciting socials!
Holly: Hi guys, I’m one of your Vice-Presidents with Anna! For DUGS this year, we want to improve the mentoring scheme, encouraging more members and meet ups between families. We’re hoping to run talks and events relating to careers and life after Durham, as well as helping out with the Geography ball where we can!
Hi, I’m Caitlin and I am the DUGS Secretary this year. I am excited to organise more academic events this year and to also provide a platform to give DUGS members the chance to talk about their research interests and future plans.
Hi I’m Lauren, I’ll be your treasurer this year! I’m hoping to keep our ball prices low and make good use of our budget in all the events planned for the year.
