ISA, GSA and Volunteering complete their committees
The International Students' Association, the Graduate Students' Association and YUSU's Volunteering Committee have filled their committees for 2012-13 after their recent elections.
Volunteering Committee held their elections in week 6 of the Summer Term and designated seven roles to new positions holders.
On her YUSU blog, Volunteering Officer Louisa Moorhouse wrote: "I am extremely excited to have a fab new committee to get stuck in for the next year!
"We had a great day at the Celebrate York event a few weeks ago. We were facepainting non stop and also contributed 136 pieces of bunting to a world record attempt that we were helping out with. This made well over 8 metres of bunting with loads left over!
"We will be out in force at York Carnival, Faxival, Alcuin Fete and many more over the next few weeks!"

Vice Chair - Steph Marsh
Fundraising and Sponsorship Officer - Elise Kemp
