My name is Patrick Tatarian and I recently took up a full time role working with Coventry University Students' Union as their CUSU CU London Coordinator. I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself and what we will be up to at CUSU in the coming weeks.
I grew up in Romford and went to All Saints Catholic School in Dagenham which is just across the road from CU London. I then went on to study Engineering at Kingston University where I got highly involved with the Students’ Union as a Senior Course Rep and Student Ambassador, culminating in me becoming a full time elected officer for the Union of Kingston Students over a period of two years where I served as the lead officer for Student Welfare, and Union Development in my first and second years respectively.
My goal is to expand CUSU’s presence at CU London, helping to improve and enhance the Student Experience on campus, and encourage more students to get involved with us. Getting involved with CUSU, such as becoming a Rep or forming a Society, is an excellent way to develop yourself as a future leader whilst also making some new friends along the way!
We will soon be hosting elections for the first ever Campus Officer to be the voice of students here at CU London, representing us across the whole of the Coventry University Group. As the new CUSU Coordinator on campus, I personally look forward to seeing the next generation of student leaders helping to empower their colleagues to have agency over their studies, and, through CUSU, helping to enrich the student experience for everyone at CU London
You can find me on the ground floor of the annexe where I work from 9 - 5 everyday. Please do feel free to come and ask me questions about anything to do with Coventry University Students' Union I look forward to meeting you.
