Join the Voices team

We're now recruiting for the FXU Voices Committee.

Voices is a collaborative project between FXU, Her Campus and The Falmouth Anchor, providing a platform for students whose voices might previously have been lost in the noise.

Now's your chance to join the team. Do you have skills in project management, journalism, photography, design or events management? We want to hear from you.
