Try new things, break some rules along the way. Our Social Media team at UofG is a mix of students and staff, we like to be able to share what happens at our uni from lots of different perspectives.
Social & Digital Media Manager
English/Scottish/Aussie hybrid. Social Media Manager and soon to be Mummy blogger. Favourite channel is Instagram. Loves Melbourne, travelling, exercise, chips, Topshop, rugby and football (watching, not playing) and gin. Hates The Kardashians (inc Kanye), meat on the bone (just wrong), Pet Shop Boys, tequila and Subway (the smell makes me want to throw up!)
Senior Social & Digital Media Officer
South African, Canadian, Scottish, not necessarily in that order – Social Media communicator & wanna-be artist! Favourite Channel is Instagram. Loves M&S CheeseTasters (they’re so delicious), tartan trews, external batteries, and table-top gardening. Hates low battery, throwing away food, email, messy cables (why isn’t everything wireless yet?).
Internal Communications Officer
Internal Communications Officer by day, Creative Writing Masters student by night (well early evening). Favourite Channel is Instagram. Loves swimming in the sea, Apes (orangutans are my fav), rainbows, Arts & Crafts (anything involving a glue gun). Hates when my crafting efforts look nothing like the Pinterest pictures, a full inbox, uncooked tomatoes.
Chinese Social Media Officer
Part-time social media, full-time PhD, spend 70% of time developing a sociological imagination and the rest wondering what to post tomorrow. Favourite Channel is Weibo. Loves milky tea on winter mornings, cider on summer nights, melting butter on pancake, checking in for home flight. Hates when it is too wet to wear canvas trainers; only one side of earphones is working.
I’m the kind of guy who will make sure everything goes in the recycling bin at your flat party. Tall, second year Sociology and Digital Media and Information Studies student, a bit obnoxious. Favourite Channel is Facebook – if only for the messenger and events functions. Love bad conspiracy documentaries, pretending I’m good at theatre, and pulling the same face in every photo. Hate the Big Bang theory (it’s just not funny ??), people who don’t make sure their pals get home safe, and mushrooms.
I’m a fourth year Zoology student who is both amazed and terrified of nature (mostly terrified). I was born in Fife but grew up in America where I once won a goat chasing competition. I'm currently going to be starting my career in business management in July, however my dream job is to be the next David Attenborough. Favourite Channel is Snapchat - as I like my friends but I only want to see them for a maximum of 10-30 seconds at a time. Love having two drinks in my hands as to stop me from texting boys that I shouldn’t and I Hate when someone sits in my unassigned seat in the library.
A third year Film, Television and Theatre with a dream to work with the BBC for at least one project. Hungarian by birth but spent most of my life in The Netherlands. Favourite Channel is Snapchat. Loves the smell of new books, salami, anything with glitter, people watching and snowboarding on fresh snow. Hate jellyfish (where is their brain?), condescending people, when you had cake but you realise you already ate it, doing dishes and having to adult.
Second year Product Design Engineering student, carefully treading the line of what’s too art school. Rowing for the University Boat Club and having little time for much else. Favourite Channel is Instagram, a picture says a thousand words and all that, it helps to get around Twitter’s 140 character limit. Loves tech, exercise, making things, and inevitably breaking things… Hates having nothing to do, walking behind slow people and long train journeys home (why is Glasgow so far north?)
British, tried to be French once - Student Social Media Officer, History student, wanna-be job holder. Favourite Channel is Facebook. Love trying to be a BNOC, causing controversy, being an embarrassment to all those around me, and dank memes. Hate eduroam, people who use internet explorer, print media, and revolving doors.

Hates Emma’s mug, the new uni email and looking at my bank balance.
Second year Business & Management student aspiring to be in the marketing/social media field. Zimbabwean but a citizen of the world.Favourite Channel is Snapchat (gotta love those filters) Love cold weather, cursive handwriting, technology, planning events and reality shows. Hate all things banana (except banana chips), being late and out of place objects (I'm kind of a neat freak).
