April 2017 – Mawson Lakes Rep

Hi everyone!

I hope you’ve all had a great mid-semester break, and are looking forward to smashing out the rest of this semester. I’d like to start by taking a moment to congratulate Ryan Colsey, the new Magill Student Representative, I look forward to working with him throughout the remainder of the year. For those of you who worked on the public holidays over the Easter break, spending time away from your family and friends, thank you. You deserve your penalty rates, and I know first-hand the importance of penalty rates for students at UniSA.

The 2017 diaries we were handing out all week are jam-packed with useful information which will help you throughout the year, so if you didn’t pick one up then I suggest you grab one from your USASA Campus Counter.

I look forward to discussing the importance of the NUS with students this year, and how important our continued affiliation is.
