Robyn Smith (she/her) — President
She’s backkkkk! Robyn has decided to give her final year of university a bit more ✨spice✨ by being president of The Cecilian Society this year. She is currently going into her 4th year of her Primary Teaching degree and her 4th year of Cecilians🥵. Robyn is so excited to get back into the swing of Cecilian chaos (now she is finished touring Europe) and even more excited to have a fabulous committee alongside her ❤️. She also promises that this year, she will put her responsible shoes on and not be the drunkest at every social and, even go home BEFORE afters when she has school in the morning 💓.
Tilly Bird (she/her) — Vice President
In case anyone was in any doubt about how much Tilly loves the Cecilian society, it was pretty clearly demonstrated when she cried (happy tears) her way through both show week and dinner dance. She is channelling all of that love into her role this year as Vice-President. When she takes a break from all things Cecilian, Tilly can usually be found insisting that Maths/Classics is not that strange of a degree combination, crying over sad (and admittedly most other) movies and tv, and defending her choice to drink tonic water and eat orange peels to anyone who will listen. Although she is sad to be hanging up her cowboy hat after assistant directing Footloose, she is looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunity to work with this wonderful committee. She only hopes that the rest of exec are ready for all the voice notes they will inevitably be recieving from her throughout the year.
Amelia Cowie (she/her) — Secretary
It is Amelia’s fifth and final (!!) year of her Spanish and Politics degree, and what better way to end it than by being the new Cecilian secretary! Frenzied emailing is what she does best after her role as University Affairs last year, so why not hone that talent and subject the whole society to her relentless use of multiple exclamation marks!! Amelia’s new found love for acrylic nails will hopefully not impede her typing skills, but instead allow her to embody her MILF secretary predecessor, Emily. It may also mean she stops being type-cast as a man. Outside of Cecilians, Amelia can be found in a bookstore buying more books when she has 33 waiting at home to be read. She also enjoys a good dance on a stage or in a club, but please look away at ceilidhs, it is not pretty. Amelia is buzzing to finally live her 70s disco dream and to put her
insanely confusing accent to good use in Sunshine on Leith (no she is not from Edinburgh). She cannot wait for the year to come and can’t wait to see you all!
Josh Archer (he/him) — Treasurer
Having had a busy year with cecilians last year, Josh is ready to do it all over again and this time with his hands in the moneybags! Having taken Maths for his first two years of uni (sorry about dropping it Tilly!) he knows his way around excel spreadsheets and can often be found colour-coding them on his laptop in the early hours of the morning. Don’t get him started talking about Theatre, Politics or god-forbid a combination of the two else he might leave his spreadsheets for a long-winded rant. Outside of uni, Josh loves to go hillwalking around Scotland and drinking pints of tennents, both of which he hopes will help with attempting a (butchered) Scottish accent for Sunny L this year.
Becky Campbell (she/her) — Past President
Now that her tenure as madame president is over, you’ll all be glad to know that Becky is in her chill era 😎 no more teary speeches !! She couldn’t be happier to have handed over the crown to miss Robyn and is so thrilled to (thanks to the constitution 😉) still be a part of the team this year – we all knew she wasn’t ready to leave Cecilians quite yet 🤍. Aside from Cecilians, Miss Campbell is heading into a pgde in secondary education (french and spanish) 📚👩🏫. Becky is so excited for one last year of fun with all her favourite people 🏻☀️!!
Iona Campbell (she/her) — Media Manager
Going into her 2nd year on committee, her 3rd year in Cecilians and her 4th year of her law degree (🥲), Iona cannot wait for the year ahead! As most people know, Iona could talk to a brick wall, therefore what better job to have then media, where she gets to talk to a camera whenever she wants! The past 2 years of Cecilians have been absolutely incredible, from meeting new friends (Robyn wanted mentioned here) to getting so many exciting opportunities like being on committee. Cecilians truly has become her entire life. She hopes everyone enjoys her daily vlogs (coming soon) and are prepared for her constantly harassing them to be in tiktoks ❤️🔥
Angelina Cochrane Browne (she/her) — University Affairs
Angelina is SO excited to jump right back into her second year in Cecilians and to be joining this year’s committee as our University Affairs. Aside from battling through tremendous amounts of reading for her History/Politics degree, Angelina can usually be found looking through the charity shops on Byres Road, starting her next knitting project or contemplating how to get her friends to go out tonight. After hanging up her cowboy boots (apart from the occasional night out!) she’ll be spending the summer either working, shopping or butchering a Scottish accent in preparation for Sunshine on Leith (Aye, nae bother!). As a History/Politics student, Angelina already loves a good debate, so feels Uni Affairs will be right up her alley. After an amazing first year with Cecilians, Angelina just couldn’t get enough (not even getting covered in shaving foam at weekend show could scare her off). Angelina is buzzing to jump right back into another amazing year in Cecilians and cannot wait for September!! 🕺🏴
Jenna Lees (she/her) — Welfare and Membership Liaison
Jenna has just finished her first year of her English/History degree and Cecilians, and is super excited to be part of Commitee this year! After a later start with the society this year after missing weekend show (😭), she had the best time in Footloose and cannot WAIT to get started with Disco Inferno and Sunshine on Leith!! Yay! As membership and welfare officer, Jenna will always be there for anyone who needs a chat about any problems or concerns this year, or even to talk about Taylor Swift, how terrible the ending of How I Met Your Mother was, or an obscure piece of Star Wars lore. When she’s not with Cecilians, Jenna can be found reading books that are NOT for her degree, bragging about her free cinema tickets, or covered in bruises from tripping over her own feet in rehearsals 🥲. Jenna is super excited to see everyone again in September, and for another year with the best society!!
Moray McConnachie (he/him) — Social Convenor
Moving into his third year as a Cecilian (and final year as a music student), Moray is beyond excited to be part of the Cecilian committee once again. After spending the last year truly getting to know the society as welfare officer, Moray is ready to take on the prestigious role of Social Convener. A reliable face at every social, Moray is fully aware of the importance of these events towards the Cecilian experience and promises to ensure that every member socialises like they’ve never socialised before in the upcoming academic year! :))
Fleur Smith (she/her) — Company Manager
Brigid Pellicano (she/her) — Publicity Manager
Brigid is going into her third year of geography at GU this year, but only her second year of cecilians! She is absolutely honored to have been elected onto such a magnificent committee this year, after having the best year ever meeting all of her best friends. 😆 So naturally she can’t wait to start giving back and help this extraordinary society run! This year will be the most fun, exciting, revolutionary one of them all, where you will be able to hear Brigid attempting to practice her Scottish accent non-stop all year for Sunshine on Leith.🤩 And as publicity officer, she can assure you that our posters are going to be jaw-droppingly beautiful. While she isn’t thinking about posters though, she can be found delivering little treats to her friends (as shown by her fairy) or embarrassing herself onstage with her band. 💕 Anyways she is ecstatic to see everyone once and again make another year of beautiful memories x 🙈💋
Bee Regan (she/her) — Stores Manager/Tech Liaison
Going into the second year of her Cecilian experience and her Zoology degree, Bee is thrilled to be joining the stexiest dynasty on campus as this year’s Stech! If she’s not spending her time in a lab or in a bookstore, you can probably find her with cecilians. After having the best time putting on Footloose with some pretty incredible people, September can’t come soon enough as she can’t wait to get stuck back into rehearsals!!
Tilly Letch (she/her) — Fundraising Manager
Tilly is a 4th year law student who if you didn’t know yet (she makes it her whole personality so you probably did) just got back from studying abroad in Slovenia. Whilst this is a solid 50% of what she talks about, luckily the other 50% is how much she loves the Cecilian society. Hopefully this will come in useful convincing you all to give the society lots and lots of money. She is super excited to be back in glasgow with the lovely Cecilians and for the super fun fundraisers planned for the year ahead!
