Sport & Student Development: Obafemi Alabi


Hey! My name is Obafemi and I am your Sport and Student Development officer this year.  I have just completed my degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. 

I represent students on sport, exercise and health issues, as well as on issues relating to students' personal development.

This year I want to hold bi-monthly feedback forums with club captains, encourage clubs and societies to have more events that accommodate all members, e.g. non-alcoholic socials, and advocate for the provision of discount vouchers for sports club members for buses and taxis to reduce the financial strain on students.

What have I done so far?



  • I met with Matt Birch, the Director of SEH (Sport, Exercise, and Health) so that we could explore and understand each other’s priorities for the upcoming year.
  • I have been working on my induction as an SU Officer - understanding how the SU and University work (together and separately) in various areas.
  • England losing in the Euros final was a lowlight for me this week!
