Alexander Roy - 2014/2015 SRC President

Hey everyone! My name is Alex Roy, also known as “Cupcake”, and I’m in my 4th year here at Bishop’s University. I’m a History major with minors in Creative Writing &

Journalism and Sports Studies. I am also the Hooker – it’s a real position, I swear – for the Bishop’s Gaiters Varsity Men’s Rugby team. I was born in Montreal and raised in the small town of Cobourg, Ontario, but now reside in Montreal again where I play for Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Rugby Football Club. In December 2010, I travelled from Cobourg to visit this small university in the heart of the Eastern Townships called “Bishop’s”. Needless to say I fell in love. After my tour, my dad and I walked back to the car, I opened the door, stopped, closed the door, and told my dad “we need to go buy my purple sweater”. Fast forward 4 years and here I am, elected as the President of the Students’ Representative Council. As President, I will act as the overall coordinator for the SRC, and a liaison between the students and the rest of the Bishop’s community, including administration, staff, and faculty. I pride myself on openness, genuineness, and communication, so when I’m not on Coulter field in my purple #2 jersey, feel free to stop by my office – #120 in the SRC hallway – with any questions, concerns, ideas, comments, or just to say hey. I hope that the SRC can help students fill their days with growth, adventure, learning, fulfilling experiences, pride, and purple. I am a firm believer in the idea that “you get out what you put in” in life, and that translates to university life and growing as a young adult, and that’s why I encourage every student to get involved both in and outside of the classroom. Join a club, volunteer with one of our charity activities around campus, pick up a new intramural sport, the list goes on. I’ll try to keep my office door open as often as possible when I’m around, so I look forward to seeing your beautiful faces and hearing what you have to say.

Cheers, Alex
