York Student is Top of the Most Influential in the UK

A York student has been named as one of the UK’s top 10 most influential students.

Urvis Mistry, 22, from Bradford, is featured in The Tab’s ‘Power 250’, a list of the most influential students who go above and beyond in their university communities – whether heading up committees, running events, starting a business or leading sports clubs – while supporting fellow students.

Urvis was listed 10th in the list of 250 students – receiving 680 votes.

He studies Electronic Engineering at University of York and is a Student Roost resident at The Boulevard.

Urvis runs the British Asian Society and the Hindu Society alongside his studies. He’s also a popular DJ and plays gigs at clubs and social venues across Yorkshire.

Urvis said: “It was a complete surprise to be nominated for the awards. I started the Hindu Society as there wasn’t one on campus at the time and I thought it would be a great way to meet and connect with others. I then took over as president of the British Asian society and grew its following over time.

“It’s really helped my time at university as I have met so many new people and made a new group of friends. It’s also helped me connect with fellow Student Roost residents.”

Harriet Harold, Operations Manager at The Boulevard, said: “As a Student Roost ambassador Urvis helps support the strong community that we’re proud of creating at each of our properties. He is hugely popular both with students and staff and always gets involved in our events and in welcoming new students.

“We’re so pleased that Urvis has been recognised for all his work and talent alongside his studies. He has the vote from everyone at Student Roost.”
