Below are the nominees for each position for the 2017 Fizz Elections, as well as any blurb written by the candidates.
I believe that I am qualified for this position because of my previous
exec experience as fourth year rep, as I have been an active participant
in exec discussions
and have helped out with events. I want to ensure that Eng Phys students
have the opportunity to make the most of their degree, by addressing
academic concerns as they appear, promoting professional development events, and through Fizz events so
that you can take an evening off every once in a while, relax, and have
I believe that I can put the hours in that this role requires to do it
well and represent Fizz at EUS Council, the Faculty of Applied Science,
Exec has been a fun experience for me this past year, and I would like
to take on a bigger role in giving back to this crazy, amazing program.
Ice cream sandwiches will be free if you vote for me.
Sydney Seraphim and Tiffany Quon
Our names are
Tiffany and Sydney, and we want to help organize your events next year!
We think that events are a great way to bring the fizz community
together, so we want to make sure that there are
lots of fun and versatile events that everyone can enjoy. We're both
going into third year, so we'll be around on campus all year instead of
being away on co-op. We also have experience with planning and
organizing various events. Feel free to contact either
one of us if you have any questions, ideas for events, or even just to
Matt Hill and Toren Dofher
Matt: I believe I am a good candidate for this position because I am
passionate about tutoring and will gladly go the extra mile to ensure
Fizz tutoring sessions will turn a profit for Fizz and helps first year
students succeed on their exams.
I have put a considerable
amount of effort to ensure the packages contain a copious amount of
applicable problems for each subject and will often use problems that
combine concepts from multiple parts of the course, or introduce new
Furthermore, since becoming VP
Academic, I have added courses to Fizz tutoring such as Math 100, Math
101, Math 152, APSC 160 = more $$$ for Fizz and happier first years
Toren: For the past two years I have been actively involved in student
government. As First Year Vice President and then as Fizz Second Year
and E-Week Rep I coordinated the department E-Week Teams, placing third
and then winning the E-Week Spirit Award for the great participation of
Engineering Physics. Also as the current EUS Council Speaker I have a
strong understanding of student government and EUS policy. By
understanding the EUS I can better execute my vision for the Fizz VP
One new plan that I want to look into:
new EUS policy makes professional development funding available to
clubs; I intend to propose a targeted event for students interested in
high tech industry to make use of this funding.
also want to do a consultation to see which companies and industries
students would like to see represented in a technical career fair.
Who has time to read? Since you're in Eng Phys,
probably not you. But fear not, I've broken down my key running points here:
- I will be more fiscally responsible than a Sauder student.
- I will ensure that Fizz events are financed and run like a well designed (hopefully by an Engineering Physics grad) machine
will make sure we're all wearing the swaggiest Fizz clothing
- I will ensure that our fund's get put to good use
I want to do my part to ensure that all Engineering Physics Students feel a sense of community and
belonging at UBC by running for the role of Fizz Treasurer. Engineering Physics is a long
and arduous journey, but with the support of fellows students and the Fizz council, it can be a truly enjoyable experience.
I have experience with this position in the past so you can rest assured that I would be a great fit.
The experience have
taught me that there truly is no substitute for putting in the hours of
work. I will use the skills I've developed to be the best treasurer any
Fizz council has ever seen. Not only will I crunch the numbers, but I
will make sure that every awesome event hosted by Fizz this year will be
fully funded, so everyone can have a great
time (when you take a break from studying, of course).
So please don't forget to vote! I look forward to hopefully having
the opportunity to be your Treasurer.

My first course of action as Sports Rep will be to pursue to extend
Fizz's reign in Ultimate and go for the threepeat. I have experience on
council this year as second year representative where I helped the
current sports rep put together our team for the EUS Flag Football
Tournament in which we beat MECH.

Make the fizz website great again. We will be assembling a team to rebuild the website from the ground up.

Our campaign is simple. We'll clean the freezer and refill it with ice cream sandwiches.
Fourth Year Representative
I'd like to run because I like ensuring that my year is getting its
voice heard, and making a difference behind the scenes is nice. As
third year rep, I acquired a new outlook on democracy, and I'd really
like to continue being a part of it.
Third Year Representative
year is going to be a challenge, and I want to make it as enjoyable as
possible for our class. Having had success in identifying and
communicating student concerns towards professors about deadlines,
additional practice sets, and regrades, I will be able to effectively
integrate your suggestions to create a larger impact. In addition, I
have two semesters of experience in organizing workshops and planning
activities from design team. I can use these abilities to make sure your
event preferences are implemented and to maintain an active voice for
our class on the council. 3rd year may seem daunting, but I will strive
to negotiate for benefits and chances for us to catch our breaths!
