Each class elects a Class Rep who acts as a liaison between the SU and the students of LIT and also between lecturers and students. A Class Rep provides an important link between his/her class and the Students’ Union, informing the Students’ Union of their concerns and problems faced by students on a day to day basis. They act as ambassadors for their class and may actively engage in organising class based activities such as social and training events.
Class reps operate on a voluntary basis, freely giving of their time to enhance their fellow students’ college experience and campus life. Becoming a Class Rep gives a student the opportunity to differentiate themselves and their curriculum vitae. Employers are very interested in both academic and work/life experience.
