William Penning

Sociology, Social Policy and Crimonology Department President

Hi, my name is Will and I am a first year Criminology student here at the University of Southampton and I am determined to give my time and effort in order to create positive change within the Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology Department.

Why should you vote for me?


  • I will ensure that your views are all fully represented to the highest standard.
  • I will make sure that I am accessible to listen to your views at anytime and anywhere that is convenient to you.
  • We all know how hard it is to meet people on your course, especially this year. So, I want to create some social events that are Covid-19 compliant. This may include:
  • Groups of six pub crawls/coffee mornings after lockdown,
  • Online activities such as escape rooms and games.
  • Lastly, but by no means least, I want to be the representative that will stand up for you and give you a voice!


Please vote for me, Will Penning as your departmental President.
