Noor continued to take part in student led activities as in previous years and took up more responsibilities by becoming the President of the university’s student volunteering group. Her roles included training new events coordinators, managing the budget with the treasurer and working alongside the secretary to maintain relationships with local charities.

In addition to her involvement with the volunteering groups, she was a committee member of the volunteering council, which oversees all the voluntary groups at the university and aids new groups with their start-ups and offer advice to the students that need it. She was elected as Chair of the council, which meant that she would run the council meetings and organize accordingly with the university’s volunteering department. During her studies she received the Students Association Award as Secretary Society and Volunteering Council for the Sociology.
