Following months of feverish campaigning by numerous worthy candidates, Coleg Menai has declared teenager Nathan Davies as its new Student Union President for the 2017-2018 academic year. 17-year- old Nathan from Bangor is studying A-levels in Biology, Further Maths and Chemistry. Academically, Nathan loves exploring different areas in pure maths. He’s also a keen pianist. For the future, Nathan wants to gain more experience before deciding to apply for nursing or a biological science. Nathan is keen to listen to the ideas of students and student representatives from across the college’s three main campuses at Bangor, Parc Menai and Llangefni. He is aiming to represent his peers effectively, as well as attending external National Union of Students (NUS) events during the course of the year, including the national conference.
