VP Societies and Communications: End of Year

Eleven months later, I’m sat at my desk in The Students’ Union reflecting on what I have managed to achieve this year. The experience of the elections, individual projects, working alongside staff, the university directorate and the students has been an opportunity that I will never forget.

 
Jailbreak - Team Sabbulous
Team Sabbulous ready to set off.

Last weekend Sian, Jamie and I took part in Jailbreak as Team Sabbulous. The aim was to far away from Frenchay Campus as we could in 36 hours with no money, we had to report to HQ every two hours - here is how we got on.

At the first Societies Conference, I invited committee members from all societies to voice what they would like The Students’ Union to Stop/Start/Keep regarding communication.

 
 

I’m here to support and encourage all of you looking to get involved with sports, either socially or competitively, regardless of your ability and background.

Varsity 2017

UWE Bristol are looking to bring the Varsity Trophy back after 2 years away, so pick up your spectator tee’s and foam fingers and get down and show your support for TeamUWE.

 
August Report

July and August has been an exciting time at The Students’ Union with lots of change and progress happening. As a sabbatical team, one of our first major tasks was to conduct a report on Graduation costs and we are now working towards lowering them by presenting our findings to the university.

 
 

I champion student welfare issues and work to celebrate the community and diversity that we have here at UWE Bristol.

10 Things I Achieved This Year

This job has been one of the best things I have ever done. There is no way I can deny that. It has also been one of the most challenging experiences of my life. Sabbatical life is unreal, hectic, and testing. It is also fun, rewarding, and inspiring.

 
Nightline

In September 2017 UWE will be launching its very own Nightline, meaning our students will have somewhere to turn to after office hours.
