Mature Age Officer

Ron Tan  



Degree and Year of study: I am in my second year of a Master of Business Administration (Marketing) 

What inspired you to engage with the office and the role you currently hold? I want Mature Students to be more represented on campus, and am passionate in being a voice that represents them in the SRC.

What do you hope to achieve in your office and role in 2021? 

I would like to improve the overall campus experience of Mature Students, and integrate them better into the wider student community.

What Clubs are you involved with at UofA?

I am currently the President of the Mature Students Association. I’m also a member of the Marketing Students’ Society and the Malaysian Students’ Association.

What led you to join the clubs(s)? 

I wanted to heavily involve myself in the Mature Student community, as well as hearing out what they have to say about their study and campus experiences.

Favourite holiday destination/activity? Anywhere nice which is peaceful, quiet and close to nature. I also like to explore and learn about different places and cultures.

Favourite place to study on campus? 

Various places in the Nexus Building, 1st and 2nd floors of Barr Smith Library.

What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide? 

Fully utilise university resources to engage, learn, and experience – join a club, volunteer, participate in events – the best time to do all these are during your precious few years in university!
