General Rep Candidates
Patrick Back

Gidday, I’m Patrick Back in third year studying Agribusiness and Food Marketing at Lincoln University applying for General Rep. I’m really keen to help the student and staff experience by being a rep. My hobbies include swimming, water-skiing, and skiing. I have good teamwork and communication skills so these could come in handy.

If successful, I hope to increase my appearance as a rep around campus, the reps currently do a great job, but it would be excellent to see them around more. This would increase students confidence to bring forth issues, ultimately leading to an improved student experience.

Kate Lambarth

I am a third year student and Lincoln University and am very passionate about giving back to the students and staff. My hobbies include, piano, tennis and sewing. But most of all, socialising and meeting new people. It is important for me to be able to connect with anyone on a professional or personal level, so in this case, I rate my social and communication skills highly and aa as important part of my own personal development.

 My passions include, music, event hosting and the RAM magazine. I believe that the RAM magazine already has a great following from staff and students, but would really benefit from being hugely student based which would include more opinion pages, columns or even fun games etc. I would really love to work alongside fellow LUSA general reps and the whole LUSA committee. I am also a big fan of clubs and all that they do for the university, so any part I can help with or be a part of would be honourable. 

Kate Gislason

I am very enthused about sustainability and making our campus a better place.

I used to work at the Michigan State University recycling center and did a lot with their social media, event planning, and artistic projects.


I think my contributions will be mostly centered around the environment and education about waste management but I am very passionate about building community as well.


Thank you for your consideration!
