FXU President Student Experience
Hey guys, I'm Jamal Clarke and as FXU President of Student Experience, it is my job to oversee all the fun things at university, such as sports, societies and volunteering!
There are over 120 sports clubs, societies and volunteering opportunity on offer at FXU, so we want you to all get involved in something! We have everything from traditional sports like Rugby, Football, Netball and Athletics & Cross Country (the best sport), to Martial Arts, Volleyball and Surfing. Furthermore, we have a wide range of alternative sports, like Ultimate Frisbee and Quidditch. In addition, there is a huge variety of societies, from religious and cultural societies like Islamic Society and African Caribbean Society, music groups, performance, and political societies, to LGBTQ+, Harry Potter, EcoSoc and many more! I’m sure that you will be able to find something that appeals to you, if not, get in touch with us, and you can start your own club or society.
FXU is very student-led, so there are many opportunities for you to get involved and improve your leadership and organisation skills. If you have an idea that you want to make a reality, let me know and I will see how I can help. Also, FXU have pots of money you can apply for, from the Step Up Fund for committee members to gain qualifications, the Exeter Annual Fund, Sports Bursaries and many more. Also, sustainability falls under my remit, so I will be there to help students access funding for sustainability projects.
As arguably the busiest President (not sorry), I am the main link between the students and the commercial services such as the Stannary Bar, the Shop, the Sports Centre and more. If you have any queries or feedback on our campus facilities or the transport network, feel free to drop me a message, as your feedback is important!
I'm here to help you, whether that is listening to your concerns, helping you to get involved, or making an idea into a reality. I look forward to meeting you all soon.
