Hi, I'm Patrick O’Donnell...
I studied Politics and International Relations as a student and was part of Derwent College. I chose to come to York from London because I loved the city and campus, as well as Politics having an excellent reputation. When I was a student, I was part of the Irish Society, Labour Club and Amnesty International society as well as serving a year as Deputy Politics Editor for Nouse.
What do I do?
As YUSU President, going out and listening to students is a big part of my role. I act as a key representative for you when meeting with senior members of the University and other key people in the community, so it’s important you know what I’m up to and how you can shape YUSU. I also play a major part in YUSU campaigns, work closely with colleges and their student committees, as well as being responsible for coordinating and supporting the other elected Sabbatical Officers.
