Mawson Lakes Rep – October

Hello again everybody,

It’s that stressful time of year – I hope everyone is feeling as prepared as can be during these last few weeks, but hang in there cause you’re so close!!

This month has been a very eventful one, with the USASA elections for next years board taking place. It was an absolute honour being elected as your student president for 2019.

Other than heckling students for 8hrs a day on their way to JS library during election week I also got to enjoy attending the Club Awards Night to see some of the fantastic work and efforts of clubs over the year being recognised. USASA Clubs have been going from strength to strength in 2018 and I hope to see this positive growth continue next year.

August was another productive month for me behind the scenes.

Hungry Humpday toasties activation at Mawson Lakes has continued throughout the month with the help of fellow Mawson Lakes rep Sneha and USASA pres Jordan – continuously running out so continue to look at for us every Wednesday in the Hive and get in quick!

On the eighth of August following the very first toastie activation I managed to catch the last part of Mawson’s Student Connect meeting with special guest – facility manager Justin Faggotter who had the opportunity to hear students concerns and ideas for around campus directly.

The rest of the month consisted of a mixture of academic integrity meetings, committee meetings, one on one catch-ups with Head of Engineering School – Duncan Campbell and Mawson Facility Manager – Justin , two trips interstate, and a case of the winter cold.

Mawson Lakes Rep – July

Hello again everybody,

Welcome back – hope you all enjoyed your well deserved semester break.

The first week of July was a very busy but exciting one for me. Whilst you were most likely enjoying the perks of some much needed relaxation and binge-watching Netflix all day for the first week of holidays, I had the privilege of attending this years NUS Education Conference hosted at Flinders university here in SA. Students from Queensland, NSW, Victoria, and Western Australia all flew over to enjoy 5 days of workshops, seminars, and discussions (some a little more rowdy than others) but overall it was a great week socialising with other university representatives to share opinions and ideas to ultimately greater the student experience and environment for everyone. After 6 full on days at conference I finally got to enjoy some of my uni break and jumped on a flight to Darwin – where funnily enough I was sitting in the same row as Magill Rep, Ryan Colsey.

Since being back in Adelaide I have continued to attend the usual array of academic inquiries, academic board meeting, welfare/education/ and finance committee meetings, as well as UniTopia SP5 planning committee meetings to bring you all another fun and enjoyable day of uni.

On the Wednesday of Wk 3 SP5 I hosted Mawson Lakes first ‘Hungry Hump Day’ providing free toasties in the Hive from 9:30 am until sold out – and although this activation was technically August not July it is still something I am very excited about doing every week for the rest of the semester.

Until next month, stay safe – look after yourself and your friends and feel free to get in contact with me with any suggestions/concerns/complaints at anytime and i’ll be more than happy to address them the best I can.
