Hey people, my name is Michael. 2nd year Economics. I am honoured to be the President for the next academic year. My role is to lead the vision of the ACS, liaise with the Students Union and make sure that everything regarding the society runs as smoothly as possible.
Top Uni Tip; Student Overdraft is not a safe haven – Don’t get lost in the sauce.

Top Uni Tip; When you’re given readings, please just read them. Take it from someone who did the exact opposite last year. Come exams, you’ll thank yourself for it.
Heyy there ! I’m Anu, a second year law student. I am the Secretary for the 2017/2018 academic year. I’ll be communicating with you through emails, keeping you updated on events and opportunities the ACS has to offer this year, so stay tuned.
Top uni tip; Weekly budgets are key so you don’t end up broke at the end of the month.
Hi, I’m Charis (ka-ris) and I’m going to be in charge of managing, budgeting and stretching society money as your Treasurer. I’m a second year studying Social Policy and Economics BSc.
Top Uni Tip; revise in groups because explaining things to other people solidifies your own knowledge and if no one understands the material, communal crying can be therapeutic. A bonus tip is bring a packed lunch to uni because Holborn food prices are not student friendly!
Hi guys, my names Abi and I’m one of the Sponsorship Officers for this year’s committee.
