Hi, I’m Tom Bowden and I’m your Community Officer for 2018/19. I’m 22 years old and was born in Hull, however I now live in a small town in Lancashire called Chorley. I studied Sports Promotion and Marketing at the University of Huddersfield before graduating in July. I was also an active member of the Rugby League club during my time at University, Captaining the club in the 2015/16 season.
This will be my 5th year in Huddersfield and at the University and I love it now more than ever! In my role as Community Officer I will be working tirelessly on creating volunteering opportunities, charity fundraising and helping you students become more employable. I can’t wait to continue with all the work I did last year!
