Vice President Student Involvement
Hi my name is Ohio Orumen and I'm a 22 year old graduate having studied Sport Science & Coaching Studies at Bucks New University. I grew up in Enfield, North London and attended St Ignatius College 6th Form.
I have always had a passion for sport having played rugby for 10 years and represented my home county of Middlesex U20’s at 18 years old. I also competed in the National Swim League for Enfield Swim Squad.
This love for sport was given a boost through the Big Deal from Bucks SU meaning I can take part in activities for free! I was nominated for the Athletic Union Multisport Award in 2013 having played for Bucks Men’s Rugby and the American Football team, BNU Buccaneers. I was also the 2015 Varsity Captain in our annual end of season cross-university fixture against Roehampton University.
Away from playing, I have been a swimming teacher for 9 years and a lifeguard for 5. I have refereed youth tournaments for Harlequins F.C. and London Irish RFC as well as pre-season friendlies for our women’s football team, Bucks Ladies FC.
For Freshers' 2014, I was part of the Freshers’ Helper Team and worked a number of Open Days for the Sports Management Department and the University.
As much as I love sport, being Vice President Student Involvement is so much more than that. I am responsible for for the delivery of societies, sports, RAG fundraising and volunteering. I am a keen volunteer having assisted Chiltern Rangers in the grassland redevelopment at the High Wycombe train station as well as taking part in the Smile Campaign during Student Volunteering Week. The Volley4RAG & NetbalL4RAG tournament and collection pots are just two of the fundraisers I regularly take part in and so can you!
My time as a student might be up but I'm here to make sure you have the best experience imaginable!
- Introducing a ‘Drop In, Don't Drop Out’ campaign to reduce the university drop-out rate
- Increase the resources available to our nursing students based at the Uxbridge campus
- Improve the productivity and effectiveness of Society & AU Council meetings
- Create more opportunities for students to gain practical experience
- Enhance the understanding of RAG and increase the number of volunteering opportunities, whilst strengthening local community links
