Greetings all, my name is Adam Clarke. I am the Student Union President for the Academic Year 2016-2017. It is my job to represent the students of Carlow College,St. Patrick's both within the college at board meetings, as well as at a national and international level as part of CCSU’s affiliation with USI. I lead the Students’ Union Executive and make sure we are all co-ordinated and working as a team so that you are getting the best possible student experience from our wonderful College.


I have big plans for the Students’ Union this year. I want to hold a Referendum during the year to update our constitution, I am looking to elect the colleges first Mature Student’s Officer, and I am working towards getting in equipment to establish an official YouTube Channel for CCSU where we can keep students informed as well as let Societies such as Drama put their performances online for the world to see!


I began College as an English & History student and was blown away by the quality of the academic side of the college. Our amazing lecturers honestly cannot be praised enough for the fantastic work they do with students. I had an amazing experience during my time in Carlow College, St. Patrick's so I ran for President as I was not ready to leave and wanted to be able to ensure that students have just as brilliant an experience of college as I had, if not better! Carlow College is an amazing place and I want to do what I can to make it even better.


Go raibh maith agat.
