We’ve finally made it to the last blog post of the year! I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas, and I wish you all a happy new year. As mentioned last month, I intend to keep this post quite short, so I am going to forgo the normal format of my posts and just speak about a couple of things.
One of the highlights of this month was attending the NUS National Conference at Deakin University’s Warun Ponds Campus. The conference was a productive one, and I enjoyed being able to advance the interests of students on a national level. I will be providing a comprehensive report back of the conference to the 2018 USASA board. For those of you who don’t know, I was elected to represent UniSA students as USASA’s Student President in 2018, so much of my time this month has been spent meeting members of staff, and preparing for 2018 so we can hit the ground running. I very much look forward to being able to continue to advocate for the interests of UniSA students next year, so with that said, I’ll see you all in 2018!

It was definitely an eye-opening experience and I learnt so much about the hiring process in the two days that I spent with the amazing panel members. As expected, everything was conducted professionally and we (especially me) were guided through the whole process. As a USASA Rep, my mind was focused on what the candidates could do for UniSA students and this helped me make decisions along the way.

But seeing as you’re here now, I thought this would be a good time to wrap up my activities for the year. Continue reading
