Who can I talk to?
Hi Everyone, I’m Dillon and I’m your new Education Officer this year in Maynooth Students’ Union. My job is to help you with any issues that you might have during your time here in Maynooth. This could be anything big or small. Lectures, tutorials, assignments, exams, can’t understand your timetable, can’t find your class, not sure about how the Union or the University works, absolutely anything!
I’m here to help so don’t be afraid to ask. As they say, the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask. If you ever need anything just pop into my office for a cup of tea or coffee or send me an email or give me a call and well sort it out together. I’m here to listen. As well as helping you look after all your academic queries, I also organise and run the Class Rep system in the Students’ Union. All the Class Reps make up Union Council and that is one of the most important systems that we have in the University. It is where all the big decisions are made and allows both the Union and the University to get feedback on what the students’ want so that we can give you the best first year experience possible.
Get involved with the Clubs and Societies. They are a great way to make new friends and keep active. But don’t forget that you’re here to get a degree so make sure from day one that you start a good study habit. Make a plan, use it, and stick with it. You will be amazed and relieved at how much easier the exams are at the end even with just a consistent little bit of work throughout the year. Your time here in Maynooth will be one of the best times of your life. Enjoy it! Start your study notes early! Try new things and make new friends. Become a Class Rep and have you say in how your Union works. Experience everything that MSU has to offer you. Have an amazing time!
