MAWSA has a brand new business exec

By Nikki Papatsoumas

The Massey at Wellington Students’ Association (MAWSA) has found a new business executive in second year Bachelor of Communications student, Rose Oakley.

Oakley says she saw the role advertised and immediately made contact with MAWSA to see how she could apply.

“I went for the role because I wanted to be part of a team that strives to improve the student experience at Massey Wellington.

“I have loved my time at Massey so far and wanted to give back to the student community any way I could and this was the perfect opportunity,” says Oakley.

In her first year, Oakley found events like the clubs day and the ball had a positive impact on her life at Massey.

Oakley says she has been quick to learn the ropes in her new role and has found the learning experience very rewarding.

She says MAWSA executive meetings have opened her eyes to more issues and opportunities that exist on campus for students.

Oakley says she is grateful to be in a role where she can have a voice on these issues.

Looking ahead Oakley says she hopes to organise events in the future that allow those studying in the business and communication areas to mingle and interact more.

Oakley says she enjoys engaging with students at events and hopes to see even more opportunities for business students here at the university.

She is also keen to approach students to get their stance on all issues to ensure all students are fully represented at meetings.

“I hope to see change by communicating to the university what we, as business students, want out of our education and the student experience,” says Oakley.

If you are a College of Buisness student with any suggestions or ideas she would love to hear from you. If you would like to get in contact please email,
