It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog and many apologies for this. Just proves how crazy-busy life as a Sabbatical Students’ Union President is!
So, what is it that has been keeping me busy?
Recently Jo Carter, the Youth Worker based on the Medway Campus, and I have been setting up the new and improved Course and Faculty Rep system. Through this your voice is louder and it provides an easier way for me to hear what you have all been saying. Course Representatives have all now been nominated within your groups and have recently attended a meeting in which we wrote down everything you have been saying, the good, the bad and the ugly too. There have been lots of the same things that come up time and again concerning travel cost and EMA. It’s amazing to know that you all care about these subjects so deeply. This is something the Union, along with the National Union of Students (NUS), is working on and we soon hope to be putting your words into action!
So, what’s next?
The next step for the Union is elections. Yes that’s right. It’s election season again. More information is to come on this so keep your eyes wide open and start thinking. If you are studying here next year why not run for an Officer position? If this is your last year and you’re struck for ideas on where to go next, ask yourself a couple of questions beginning with: do you want to make a difference to others’ student experience? If so, consider running for the presidential role.
