The Elections Show – Education

11th March 2015

The Education Candidates

On Wednesday 11th March, we welcomed the Education Candidates into the URN Studios for the third instalment of The Elections Show. Our show designed to get to know the candidates behind the manifestos. We’ve seen their manifestos, we’ve seen them around campus…but who are they?!

First up, we played CamPAIN with the candidates. If the Candidates are going to be next year’s Education Officer then surely they’d be able to name all the Schools and Faculties at Uni right?! Not only were they tested on this, but if they couldn’t think of one they’d have to hold on to our infamous electric ball! If they named one correctly, they’d pass to another Candidate.

Yet again, (apologies to the Presidential Candidates in advance!) our resident stalkers took to the Candidates’ twitter accounts to unravel their embarrassing social media past…

Lastly, how good were the Candidates at answering our classic questions from a 10-year old’s school syllabus? To add to this, if they got it wrong, or another Candidate answered correctly, everyone had to put a certain number of milk bottles into their mouth without swallowing…it was like being 10 all over again! To make matters even more complicated, they had to use their Mexican Wrestler names as buzzers…(?!)

Whilst you’re here, why not check out Episode #3 of ‘The Candidate’ – Episodes 4 will be released on the Elections Show tomorrow. This time, the Candidates were tasked with branding their campaigns…image is so important for the Elections process, so what will they come up with?


Tomorrow, its the big one…we welcome to candidates for SU President into the studio. Make sure you tune into URN between 6-7 tomorrow to hear the action!
