Spotlight on Student Volunteers: Freddie Yeates


What Volunteering Roles do you have? Or have most enjoyed?

I am an Academic Representative for Year 1 Geography in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences.


Why do you volunteer?

I love being able to make a difference for a large cohort, and make their voices heard at a higher level and help alleviate problems they see within their courses.


What is your best feel good moment as a volunteer?

I was able to get a timetable corrected, due to 1 day a week having 5 lectures in a day, 2 of which were 2 hours long. I was also able to correct the issue of lecturers starting early, directly improving how students felt about their lectures.


What benefits have you gained as a volunteer?

I have been able to help the people around me. And, I attend Rep only events during termtime.


What volunteering roles are you looking forward to?

I am looking forward to applying for Undergraduate Faculty Officer next year for FELS to make an even more pronounced improvement for students, and make sure I can make student life as best it can be!
