VP Campus Culture
UQU 2019 Executive

My name is Rebekah Thornton and I am currently a fifth-year student studying a Journalism/Communications degree majoring in Public Relations. I will be your UQ Union Campus Culture Vice-President for 2019.

Throughout my time at UQ, my involvement with clubs and societies have shaped and diversified my experience as a student. As President – and previously Secretary - of the UQ Cheerleading Squad (2016-2019) and Vice-President of the Education Society (2018), I have witnessed the positive impact that these organisations have on student welfare and their UQ experience first-hand. I am passionate about improving the student experience through student groups on campus and this prompted me to get involved with the UQ Union as the Clubs and Societies Vice-President.

My goal for my time in this role is to foster the same welcoming environment that prompted me to first get involved, and to create a collaborative and inclusive student community. I look forward to working with you in 2019!
