Vice President, Communications – Marcus Lo

“Good communication is the bridge between confusion and clarity.” – Nat Turner

Hi there, I am Marcus Lo (Class of 2023) and I am running again as a candidate for the UBC PhUS VP Communications position for the 2021-2022 school year. Over the past year, with classes being all online, I have taken on many new and challenging tasks to accommodate for these changes. I have collaborated with faculty, council members, and pharmacy alumni to deliver the best possible experience to the student body. At the beginning of the school year, I completely updated the UBC PhUS website while working with Vanessa (PhUS Secretary) to welcome first-years with open-arms through GPA. I also cooperated with Dr. Marion Pearson to update the PhUS announcements and send out timely weekly newsletters. Throughout the term, I am constantly communicating with alumni, clubs, and event coordinators to update the student body about the latest events happening within our faculty and new job opportunities in the community. 

With classes scheduled to resume in-person this coming September, I want to play a bigger role in promoting awareness of events, improving communications, as well as enhancing event organization. No longer will students have to worry about missing that free pizza or subway at noon. However, this is equally as much of an opportunity for you as it is for me. Only you can make this happen now with your vote. Let’s work together to make our stamp in this community, our pharmily.
