About Us



Laura Trotter

I’m Laura, a second year History & Politics student, and I’m your President! As President, my responsibility is to oversee the JCR Exec officers in their roles and to represent Cartmel students on various meetings, like LUSU Council. My biggest and probably most important task as President will be to organise Cartmel College Freshers’ Week 2015 and make it as exciting as possible for new students. I also help in the co-ordination of our annual sporting competition – The Patriots’ Cup – against Furness and get to enjoy Cartmel’s victory at the end of it. Other than that, I generally help out other Exec members in their roles if they need me. If you have any questions about anything Cartmel related, just email me or drop me a message on Facebook, you could even tweet me if you’re into that @lauratrotter18.
