Each year in November, the BMS students elect a new team of BMS student representatives for one year. We are delighted to announce this year’s new team: Aizhan Issagali, Coco Bögel, Dante Luber, Lenny Leass, Margarita Kostré, and Marwa Zainelabdeen.
The new team will start their term in December, while the recent BMS student representatives - Andrei, Paramjit, Sandro, Sofía, Tatiana, and Vira - will still be responsible for the Career Day on 10 December 2021 and for the student conference in 2022.
In general, the BMS student representatives have two main tasks: They serve as a contact between the BMS students and the BMS administration and help BMS students to connect with each other.
In addition, they represent the BMS students on various official committees and can voice students' concerns and suggestions there. The representatives try to notice needs and organize an annual survey of BMS students.
To help BMS students get to know each other and provide opportunities for networking, they offer a wide range of activities like
• organizing social events,
• running a peer-mentoring program,
• connecting new students with those of similar academic interests,
• organizing a Career Day with BMS alumni once a year
