Tom Crowley

Tom Crowley

Tom is an Arts student, a fact he reminds his Commerce-studying ESSA friends of on an irritatingly regular basis. He is majoring in Economics, to which he is attracted because it provides an indispensable analytical framework for thinking about public policy (read: unhealthy obsession). He joined ESSA because he wanted to promote intelligent, informed debate amongst students, ESSA’s primary aim.

When he isn’t writing profiles about himself, Tom can usually be found eating but rarely humorous. He suspects you read that sentence twice. He is also the Education and Academic Affairs Officer at the University of Melbourne Student Union.
