ASA Class Representatives
Class representatives represent their class on the ASA and EUS councils. There are two seats for each studio year (U1, U2 and U3) and one seat for the U0 year. Class reps may also called upon to act as a liaison between a class and professor. As student leaders, they often undertake initiatives of their own within the studio community - organising social events, purchases of communal goods, etc.

If you are interested in becoming class representative please print and submit your nomination form to either Marcia King (second floor reception) or to our CRO Marine de Carboniere (U2 Studio first floor) no later than Tuesday September 15th 2015. Also please be aware that you will need to prepare a 200 word text describing yourself and why you would like to become class representative as well as a picture of yourself.
