Name: Henry Armfield
Preferred Name: Henry
Degree and year of study?
International Relations & Economics, Fourth Year.
What inspired you to engage with the office and role(s) you currently hold?
I’ve been involved in other committees at uni before and saw the SRC as an opportunity to do more. The SRC is also an organisation that is active on issues outside of the university that effect students, I’m looking to continue that culture.
What Clubs are you involved with at UofA?
I sit on the executive of the Labor club as policy director.
I am an active member of the Business Students Society, Economics Club, and Politics and International Relations Association.
While I don’t study either, I’ve been known to drink beers at Engineering Society and Law Society events.
Rumour has it I may be joining the Blacks footy club too (Subject to fitness).
What led you to join the club(s)?
Either through O’week stalls, an event that sounded interesting or just by getting dragged along by a friend.
Favourite holiday destination/activity?
Somewhere tropical or the snow.
Favourite place to study on campus?
The Barr Smith Reading room.
What do you hope to achieve in your office and role(s) in 2020?
Stop Trimesters, improve mental health and financial counselling services, improve campus culture, empower clubs, and stand against the commercialisation of education.
What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide?
Get involved in clubs, try to do more than just go to tutorials and watch lectures at home, you’ll be much happier for it.
