Preferred Name:

Merlin Wang

Degree and year of study?

Third Year, Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences

What inspired you to engage with the office and role(s) you currently hold?

It’s been a long time that the voices from Waite and Roseworthy Campuses were not heard as there was no representative in student governing bodies to solve our issues. Therefore, I decided to stand up and flight for equal rights for regional students.

What Clubs are you involved with at UofA?

I am the President of Adelaide University Chinese Students Association (AUCSA) and a member of Adelaide University Agricultural Students Association (AUASA).

What led you to join the club(s)?

As Chinese myself, I clearly understand the pains and struggles that Chinese students face at UofA. I joined AUCSA in the very early days after arriving Adelaide from New Zealand, and AUCSA is where I find I belong to and I also met many friends there. Therefore, I want to continue organising events and helping more Chinese students who are in need.

I am keep participating the events organised my AUASA as these meaningful events provide opportunities for us to engage with the industry and network with agricultural entrepreneurs.

Favourite holiday destination/activity?

Rotorua, Aotearoa (New Zealand). Having a spa! The spa in Rotorua is always the best! No matter how stressful you are, the spa will take all the stress away from you!

Favourite place to study on campus?

Charles Hawker

What do you hope to achieve in your office and role(s) in 2023?

Infrastructure is the most important thing that I want to improve in Waite and Roseworthy. Which includes fixing tables and improving Hub space quality in Waite and adding road signs and upgrading lecture halls in Roseworthy.

What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide?

Join clubs! Clubs are also the best place for you to meet more people and make new friends which will also help you to adapt University life faster!
