FXU President Community & Welfare
O’hai there, I’m Alexa, your FXU President Community and Welfare.
In 2015 you elected me to represent you, and I am so excited that you elected me for a second year with the FXU to be here supporting all of you during the next year in our beautiful Cornwall. It has certainly stolen my heart over the past four years, as have these campuses and universities. As a student I was involved with both the student rep’ and Falmouth mentoring schemes, many an art exhibition, events, volunteering, societies, and much, much more! All of these have led me down the path to being your community and welfare president!
My role involves making sure your experience with welfare, the community, volunteering and RAD (Raising and Donating), is well supported and the most positive it can be! This covers everything from quality accommodation to your mental health, liberation to accessibility, your right to your faith to your safety! The full list is below, and even then some things are missed out. But don’t worry – somehow I find time for everything!
I’ll be running campaigns throughout the year on topics such as mental health, liberation, and accommodation - so keep an eye out! I’ll also be running drop in sessions each week, as well as supporting student projects. I’ll just be a blur of red and black going past in my wheelchair but don’t worry – I’m always happy to chat, see how you’re doing, and get involved with the amazing work of Falmouth and Exeter students!
I am also the person you can come to when the worst happens, able to put you in contact with the amazing FXU Advice Team and Student Support! Don’t forget that The Compass is there to help you as a first line of support – so when in doubt you can go to them! There is so much help and support available to you, so whether is be academic, finance, mental health, or support please reach out to us and let us now!
I cannot wait to meet you all and whether it be about wellbeing, equal opportunities or charity please feel free to come talk to me. There are many exciting opportunities available to you, along with support for times of trouble, and I am here to make sure that you not only know what is available to you but also make new schemes happen.
My door is always open, so please come and say hello!
All my love, support, and solidarity,
