matthew mulkern | General councillor
Hello fellow Gaiters! I’m in my last year (maybe) of a second bachelors degree in études françaises et québécoises. Originally from Houston, Texas, USA my passion for Bishop's is deeper than the color purple and I want to do everything I can to improve the academic vitality at the best University in Canada! I was fortunate enough to study at Bishop's on exchange during my first bachelor’s degree. Since then, I have attained a master’s degree and delved into the working world. I have returned to Bishop's for a second bachelor’s degree and to apply my life experiences, passion and knowledge to making a significant difference at our University. When I’m not working with the History Club, hosting my radio show as a DJ on CJMQ 88.9 FM, bowling with the Bowling Club, jogging with the Running Club, leading the Bishops University International Students Association, calling sports games for the Gaiters on their webcast or working part time as an Engineer in Sherbrooke, I will be representing, you, the students as a member of the SRC.
As a General Councilor, I will build on the successful programs of my predecessors and introduce new measures to improve the quality of the academic programs at Bishop’s. During my term, in addition to primarily responding to students concerns, I plan to focus on increasing the social responsibility and transparency of the SRC as a whole while introducing SRC constitutional and electoral reform. Please provide me with any questions, comments and/or feedback you may have. I'm here to represent YOU and be your voice on student government.

Hello! My name is Alex and I am from Pickering, ON, which is about a half hour drive from Toronto. I will be going into my second year where I am majoring in Art Administration: Visual Arts and would like to potentially major in Business. I am a proud Bishop’s student who feels grateful and honoured to attend an amazing university. This year I have been granted a position on the SRC as a General Councillor and I am excited to see what I as well as the other General Councillors can bring to the table. Last year I was an On Campus Student Affair Rep and I have learned a lot from the experience. I look forward to meeting students and doing whatever I can to help. I will be focusing my time on having more discussions with students to have a proper exchange of information as to what is happening at Bishop’s. If you have any questions, suggestions or just feel like talking you can contact me through my email, which is shown below my name. Thanks for your time and have a BU-tiful day!
