MAWSON LAKES REP REPORT – JIVAN JOTHI – SEPTEMBER

Hi everyone,

Welcome back from the holidays! Hope you all had an amazing break from your studies!  I hope everyone had fun watching the Grand Finals – even if your team did not achieve your desired results. Throughout the month of September, USASA has been focused on several projects. I’ve been involved in discussions around policies in the Governance committee, as well as the other projects – which I hope to update you guys with soon.


Breakky Bar in September was particularly interesting. Mainly because for one week,  the turnout was unexpectedly higher than normal and also because I ran it by myself. I have to say it was no easy task but I was happy to see everyone coming down and having a fun time and some, in fact, many of you took the time to have a chat with me. Sadly most of the food was gone within the first hour, so do drop by sooner rather than later!
Here are some images from the Breakky Bar in a slideshow;

Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Rep – August Activity Report.

Hi UniSA Students,

Firstly, I just wanted to say sorry that I have been absent the last couple months; I’ve been having personal issues, so please excuse that.

So this is my first time blogging in my life (EVER!!) & posting about student experience. Now time to catch up! I first came into this role May. On June the 6th University of South Australia held a scholarship ceremony, celebrating all students who had worked hard and had received an award. I was lucky enough to be the 2017 Gavin Wanganeen Aboriginal & Torres Islander Scholarship recipient among other luck recipients of Gavin Wanganeen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scholarship (sponsored by Department of State Development) & Gavin Wanganeen Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Scholarship (sponsored by the Department of Environment, Water & Natural Resources).

Mt Gambier Student Rep report

Hi everyone,

It’s been a quiet couple of months on campus here, most students have well established routines and our mid year intake was only 23 students so I have not had as much student contact as in the first few months….however, I have still managed to keep busy as a rep.

In July the campus finally got the student engagement rep position filled by a student (Tania a business student) this means that myself, Tania and Ian (campus manager) now all work together to provide the best student services and support we can.  As a regional campus we are often unable to provide the same services and opportunities as our city counterparts, this is where Tania, Ian and myself work collaboratively to ensure we get the best opportunities possible for all students, the following is some of what we have achieved and are working toward;
