Your Sabbatical Officers

Becca Kent - Vice President Sports and Healthy Living

Becca Kent is your Vice President of Sport and Healthy Living. Part of Becca's role is to be AU President. This is her second and last year as your full time elected sports officer. Becca is the key contact for the sports clubs, liaising with British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS); leading on the administration, planning and logistics of all competitive and non-competitive sporting activities; as well as running events and campaigns to encourage students to lead healthier and more active lifestyles. Becca ensures you get the best sporting experience at Bangor.

While studying Marine Environmental Studies as an undergraduate, Becca sat on the AU Exec as Events officer. Her aims with the AU Exec this year are (briefly, but definitely not limited to) to create a bigger AU community and ‘brand’, have a bigger and better Super Teams and Super Stars event where the fittest of the AU compete, run bigger campaigns getting more people active and excited about sport and lead the #winaway campaign for the prestigious Varsity competition series where in 2017 we plan to beat Aberystwyth on their home turf.
