Greetings folks! Hope everyone had a great Australia Day
It’s an absolute honour to be serving as Magill Rep for a second year and I look forward to building on the good work we achieved last year.
Naturally the board retreat was the highlight of this month. Having only joined the USASA Board in April last year this was my first board retreat and it was a very positive experience. I got to meet most of the new board for this year I am filled with great confidence that this year’s board will be just as successful as last year’s board, if not more so.
On February 6 the USASA Board will have it’s first meeting which will determine who convenes and sits on which committees. Once this has been decided I will have a fair idea of what I will be doing this year for USASA as a whole.
As for the Magill Campus, a few of my aims this year on campus will be: Continue reading
In my last board report I wrote how October had been the busiest month I’d had since being on the USASA Board. This month topped that.
The big focus this month was the USASA submission into changes relating to the Disciplinary Clusters project in the School of CIL. To put that into English, the School of Communication, International Studies and Languages undertook a review of the school Continue reading
Boy oh boy wowee, what a month!!
October was perhaps the busiest month I’ve had during my time on the USASA Board. I continued doing my usual weekly Brekky Bar duties with Carey (excluding October 24 due to USASA Elections) and we saw a larger turnout of students using the service when we moved it to a Tuesday.
I chaired the Continue reading
Wow. What a month!
This month Carey and I finally got the Brekky Bar back up and running again. I can confirm we are well stocked with enough food to see out the rest of the Study Period 5. We did not continue the Brekky Bar during the study break but it will resume afterwards.
For USASA Student Committees Continue reading
This month has been busy as always. It kicked off with the USASA Education Committee meeting which went really well. Ten academic representatives were in attendance from various schools across the university and everyone shared their different experiences about their role and how their school functions.

For many students July was a time to relax and take a break from the stresses of study, but for USASA the work doesn’t stop.
This month I focused on three main things that I believe are important to my campus: social interaction, club regeneration, and the Brekky Bar.
Firstly, as you may have started to see, there have been new posters going up around the Magill Campus to promote our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/UniSAMagillHub/). Continue reading
This month was a busy one for me personally as I’m sure it was for all Uni SA students with SP2 wrapping up.
USASA wise June marked several firsts for me.
On June 2 I attended my first School Board meeting. The room was full of staff from my campus and involved people discussing Continue reading
May was my first full month as Student Representative for the Magill campus. It has flown by really quickly and I am now familiarizing myself a lot better with the inner workings of USASA.
The month kicked off with the Student Board AGM, where many issues were raised and debated. One of the big items to come out of the meeting was the decision to split the Education and Welfare Committee into two separate committees.
At the meeting I was appointed Continue reading
On April 7 I was elected unopposed to be the USASA Student Representative of Magill Campus, a position that had previously been vacant. I would like to thank everyone at USASA for accommodating me so quickly and welcoming me with open arms. Starting at this position in the middle of the academic year presents some challenges, but I am focused on quickly getting myself up to speed with the role.
Currently I am a second year student at Magill studying a double of Journalism and International Relations. Further information about me can be found on the USASA website under the Student Board tab.
So far I have met with several people in USASA as I continue finding my feet. On April 10 I had a meeting with Kayla (President) and Daniel (General Manager) where I was given information on the board structure, student welfare programs, and other committees.
