President - Aaron Buckley


Ladies & Gentlemen, 

Welcome to Cork Institute of Technology. My name is Aaron Buckley and I am your student president for the coming year. I have just completed a four year honours degree in business. I have had an incredible four year stay in CIT thus far and I am delighted to be your chief executive officer for the year ahead. College is the best four years of your life and it is over in an instant so enjoy every second. College is firstly about education but followed very closely by entertainment and nightlife so be sure to make the most of what college has to offer. By following the CIT student union social media outlets you will be kept up to date with what entertainment we have planned throughout the year ahead. 

One bit of advice I would strongly recommend for you the students is to get involved in campus life! Becoming a class rep is a good way of getting involved and lets you have a say in the organising of entertainment including nightlife.

You may wonder why I keep discussing nightlife and that is because the friendships and memories made by engaging in what college nightlife has to offer is what will fundamentally make your college experience an enjoyable one. 

My role as president

My role as president is a strategic one whereby I oversee the overall management of the Students Union to make sure we are all working towards improving your quality of life here as a CIT student. One of my main roles is to represent you the students at Institute level and also on a national level.

So what do I mean by representation at an Institute-wide level?

Every decision that is made within the institute, from hiring a new member of staff to changing exam regulations, is done so by a committee which ultimately reports into the Governing Body of the institute. The students Union is in the unique position that it contributes to the strategic decision-making process within the institute by sitting on a number of committees. As the President of the Student Union I hold a seat on all of these committees. These include: The Governing Body, Academic Council, Student Services company, The Finance Committee, Strategic Development Committee to name a few. On all of these boards I fight for the rights of the students to ensure they are represented to so they have the best possible conditions.

I hope CIT is as good to you as it has been to me and don’t forget that no matter how hard you work make sure to always party twice as hard!
