Annnnd it’s already June! Which means it’s time to write another board report, for May.
I hope everyone has had survived through their last half of their semester. For Business School, exams have just finished, and I hope everyone feels confident about their results. For the rest of the Uni, make sure to take care of yourself through these last few weeks, and in no time you’ll be joining the business kids in holiday season!
This last month has been hectic for me. Mostly because it’s been exam season for me, and I’ve been frantically trying to squeeze everything in!
Summary of Activity
I was able to attend the City West Unitopia day.. which turned out to be very successful! I hope everyone enjoyed the free food (which was delicious, and very popular!), the activities, some of our help stations (like our counsellors!), and other things… like the doggos!
City West has also been very lucky to enjoy the opening of our MOD museum, that is just right across the road from our campus! It’s a very futuristic museum, with lots of advanced technology and science-y things to check out. So far, I’ve heard lots of positive feedback, saying that it’s a great place to check out if you have a spare moment in your day.
On the 22nd of May I also attended our monthly board meeting. During this meeting, we had a visit from Jordan O’Reilly representing the NUS (National Union of Students) and some of the issues that face us as students. The NUS represents us and provides a voice for student needs and rights. As students, it’s important for us to have our voice heard and to stand up for the things we need; especially when things such as the Budget are handed down with very little consideration for students. If you would like to find out more about the NUS or issues facing students, please visit their website here: http://nus.asn.au/
Other things discussed in the meeting included events being held by reps (and some great ideas for us to consider here at City West). We also spoke about the ‘hazing’ incident that is occurring (and is becoming well-known) happening at St Marks College. We are currently working on a response, and would like to support anyone affected by the incidents. Please don’t be afraid to speak to our university services staff, if you or someone your know is in need of help.
Otherwise, please keep yourself safe during this time of exams or holidays!
That’s about it for me!
