The eternal question has finally been answered: Who would win a fight between a superhero, a smurf and 6ft something ‘singer’ armed with a guitar?

And the smurfs have it: Your returning VP Engagement, with a  landslide majority of 3045 votes, is Shane ‘Smurphy’ Murphy. Arguably the most competitively campaigned position, Robert Leane and Nat Ralph were admirable contenders with their impressive appeals; there was no escape! However, Shane’s strength of experience and unlimited supply of blue face paint has secured him a second year in this role.

His job focuses on the most important part of uni life: entertainment! This includes supporting student-led organisations like RAG, societies and JCR’s, helping look after the Performing Arts and organising events all year round. Student Engagement is all about getting you guys a involved and ensuring you have an awesome time.

21 year old Shane graduated with a Bsc in Maths with Finance and is a regular in ‘Jesters’. Returning to the position should mean no transition stage so he can get to improving our university experience straight away.

SUSU has well and truly gained More Shane.
