Ball Chair

Erin Higginson – Ball Chair – 3rd Year Primary Education

FAVOURITE STEVO EVENT OF THE PAST YEAR
My favourite Stevo event of the year has to be Stevo Day! It’s always such a fun day surrounded by friends and live music – it’s unmissable!
WHERE TO GO FOR THE BEST FOOD IN DURHAM?
Tango! The nachos are AMAZING and the loaded chips are incredible! They cater for everyone, from gluten free to vegan. They also do 10% student discount which gives you no excuse to go!
ONE PLACE YOU’D LOVE TO TRAVEL TO:
Australia – it looks GORGEOUS!
ONE PIECE OF ADVICE FOR INCOMING FRESHERS:
Be nice to the bar staff on college bars, they’re students just like you and are always up for a chat (I know I am)!

 

Ball Chair-3

Jeff Bryant – Events Director – Marketing

YOUR #1 GOAL AS A MEMBER OF STEVO EXEC FOR NEXT YEAR?
Increase the amount of and improve the variety of events that take place. On top of continuing to run the great events in the current Stevo calendar, I aim to put on a series of events with a focus on adventure & sport, increase seasonal events and ensure there are engaging events for those who both do and don’t drink alcohol

MOST INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF:
Competed in a Karate tournament in Japan.

ONE PIECE OF ADVICE FOR INCOMING FRESHERS:
Starting uni can be daunting and I think the best way to approach it is by throwing yourself into anything and everything you possibly can. Don’t be afraid to try new things, meet new people and step outside your comfort zone! You only regret the things in life you didn’t do & the 3 years absolutely flies by, so waste no time and Durham has so much to offer so you really don’t have an excuse not to get involved!

GO-TO KARAOKE SONG:
Wonderwall (one that everybody can join in to).

ALL TIME FAVOURITE BOOK OR FILM?
This question’s way too tough. But I am incredibly excited for the final Star Wars later this year; George Lucas could fart and I’d probably get excited.


 

Ball Chair-5

Sooyoung Hahn – Media and promotions officer – 1st Year Philosophy and Psychology

MOST RANDOM/INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOU:
I love my name. The only thing, however, is that my name can become a pun both in english and in korean (google translate if you care to find out more.) I’ve lived in South Korea, the US, Croatia, and the UK, yet some how I keep finding myself with people using my name as a pun. I’ve given up at this point. I will say one thing though – if you think you’ve come up with a clever pun with my name, it’s probably not that clever, and I’ve most likely heard it from the person before you. Sorry to break it to you ❤️
DEAD OR ALIVE, WHO WOULD YOU INVITE TO A DINNER PARTY?
Mac Miller. I have infinite respect for him and his work.
ONE PIECE OF ADVICE FOR INCOMING FRESHERS:
Most of the time everyone is just trying their best, even if they’re not the best version of themselves at the moment. Taking things personally by what other people do or being hateful doesn’t pay your tuition, so you just do you the best you can. Also maybe bring more than two forks to university because the next thing you know, they’re lost in another dimension and you have to go around asking your friends to donate unused forks to you.
