Ashley Cotton's Story

"Simple answer that many many students wouldn't be here at Staffordshire University; if Ashley Cotton was not here, he is helpful, supportive, encouraging and engaging regardless of the time of day he always replies and goes that extra mile. I have so many students that still are willing to stand up for him and say what excellent importance and impact Ashley Cotton has on students. It would not be fair if he is not praised for his hard work. He is the pride of Staffordshire University and should be appreciated."

We hope that you are as proud of your story as we are. However, if you would prefer the Students' Union to no longer display you story on our website, please email and a member of our friendly team will be happy to help.
