Hi friends, my name is Katie Martin
I’m your Communities Officer for the 2023/2024 academic year
Where am I from?
I’m a proud Galway Girl, from a tiny little village in East Galway, but Limerick has been my home away from home for the last few years.
What did I study?
I’ve just completed my Masters degree in Marketing, Consumption and Society. I also did my undergraduate degree here, studying Journalism and New Media.
A bit about me:
I’ve been around UL for a while now and I’ve done all sorts of things from being First Seven Weeks Coordinator to running the campus radio station. I was Societies Officer last year and now I’ve stepped up to be a voice for all student communities.
How can I support you this academic year?
As Communities Officer, I am UL Student Life’s representative for every student community in UL. Whether you are a member of UL Wolves Clubs & Societies, a postgraduate, a graduate entry, part-time student, a member of the LGBTQI+ community, a member of an ethnic, religious, or linguistic minority, a Sanctuary Student, or a member of any other community, I am here to voice any concerns you may have as a member of that community.
What do I want to achieve in this role?
Where can you find me on campus?
You’ll find me upstairs in the C&S office or grabbing a much-needed coffee from Scholars. My office is downstairs in the Student Life building, just past reception. The door is always open, so please don’t be a stranger! If you’re feeling shy, drop me an email at email@example.com and I promise to help however I can.
