Publicity Officer

Reuben Cone




I’m Reuben, a third year Biology student and current Chair of Keele SSAGO.


For almost three years SSAGO has been a massive part of my life. When I arrived at Keele, the club had half a committee, had never properly been to a national event and most importantly didn’t have a mascot. I jumped straight in as Treasurer on the committee, and as a team we helped to build the foundations with an improved logo, merchandise and adopted Scruffy Squirrel. In the year after that I became Scout and Guide coordinator which (as the name suggests) involved liaising with the local Scout and Guide groups. I helped to find leadership opportunities for our members and grow our clubs position within the local districts. Most importantly though my second year was spent helping to organise our Keele to Kandersteg trip. Taking plucky little Keele all the way to Switzerland was a rewarding and unforgettable experience. I learned many things about organisation, finances and paperwork – all skills that I hope will serve me well now. Going into my final year I became Chair. The year started with our Midlands Freshers Camp - anybody who saw me swaggering around in a deer-stalker will tell you I had a great time leading the weekend. Currently we are in the process of organising our next international trip to Germany, taking even more people away for an even better time.


Alas I now must leave Keele. Seeing the club I helped to set up thrive and grow is one of my proudest achievements. But I need something to fill the gap don’t I?
