June 2018 Magill Board Report: Surabhi Shubhraj


“Procrastination makes easy things hand, hard things harder” – Brainy Quote

Going along with university theme, I never have the luxury for procrastination. I personally live by the clock and diary. I have learnt to make time for things I would like to achieve and only choose to commit to my goals. I hope that you have gotten over your crisis and enjoying your down time now. Please have fun during your mid semester break.

During the mid semester break I highly recommend students to join or create a club.  As you all know USASA is a proud association and clubs are a great way to find friendships and connect with like minded people. USASA is working extremely hard to support clubs to connect with student groups.

While I have been away this month at my placement full-time Monday to Friday, 8.45-5:00. I was so please to know that students were still able to contact me regardless. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for considering me worthy to reach out. As @ryancmagill rightly stated in his board report that student representatives must talk to students to know what they really want. I wish to continue to support you all in every possible way and ensure that our voices are heard. Much love, power and strength to you all. I hope to see you all in person during the second half of the year. Meanwhile feel free to write to me on


Lastly, I am really excited to work with @kateriggall in the coming months and support her with Diversity and Equity Committee and @gracelucy24 with Welfare Committee.

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but there echos are truly endless” Mother Teresa

In university full of people from different back grounds and personal stories… Lets begin to smile at each other with ease…. Lets be kind and remember to discover these untold stories amongst each other… Remember human connection with a purpose can be extremely rewarding. You never know who needed to see your smile.

The month of May was a very short for me both at USASA and Magill Campus. I certainly feel the pressure of being away from  our campus. I am unable to attend a lot of events for this reason too. My sincere apologies. Please feel free to contact me on my email shusy008@mymail.unisa.edu.au

My highlight this month would be “Toastie Tuesdays”. Specially being in the library!!! It was a great opportunity to reach out to many students studying hard. I was personally able increase my visibility and engage with lots of students on campus. A big thank you to team @ryancmagill @jordanmumford1 @pamelaspek

May Activities:

May 1 –Toastie Tuesdays

April 2018 Magill Board Report: Surabhi Shubhraj

“It is never the wrong time for the right one” PictureQuotations

University is a safe space for learning. Our goal is to excel academically to achieve our professional goals. However I strongly believe that learning can only take place when we are looking after our wellbeing. Lots of love, power and strength to you all.

“Toastie Tuesdays”  was huge success. @ryancmagill and I had a great opportunity to connect with many students on Magill campus. Reflecting back on our interactions with 40 students we learnt that Magill campus is quite because a lot of students are juggling between work, university and personal lives. It is a constant run to meet strict time lines. I wish for us to create a community to proved each other with unconditional love, acceptance and support to thrive. Continue reading

March 2018 Magill Board Report: Surabhi Shubhraj

“Life is quicker than a blink of an eye” Jimi Hendrix

March clearly felt like running marathon. I got my days mixed up and I am a few hours late at getting the my report in. Apologies!

Most of you know me now and aware of my passion towards women’s matters on campus. I spent this month learning about what I can and can not do in the capacity of Magill Under Grad Representative and the convenor of the Women’s Committee at USASA. The complexities of the matter require me to connect with female identifying students on campus. I identified USASA Women’s Collective Club as a great opportunity to reach out with diverse student groups to initiate matters for discussion.

In the capacity of the club listed are some on the issues I came across:

  • Sexual Assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Breast feeding
  • Pregnancy
  • Abortion
  • Miscarrage
  • Storage of Breast milk on campus
  • Child care
  • Pumping Breast milk on campus
  • Gender inequality
  • Inadequate support during placement due to gender biases

I wish to network and continue to explore new ideas to form a safe space for students in the future.

  • 06/03/2018 Magill Campus Fair Day

February 2018 Magill Board Report: Surabhi Shubhraj


“Keep up or get caught” these were the first few words of my wise tutor from first year.  I hope that everyone is working through university study and life balancing act well. Our study load certainly represents the snow ball effect. I wish you all lots of love, power and strength to get past your individual challenges.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for my absence from Magill campus during orientation week. I am in my third year Social Work Placement this semester. As most of you are aware placement requires alot of work but I am committed to working towards students welbeing on campus. I am extremly exicited about the new changes on our campus.

While I was very concerned about the Magill Hub renovations, it was completed on time after all. I think the new area looks fantastic and I have received lots of positive feedback. Also, remember to pick your USASA goodie bags, diaries, calendars and pens etc from our USASA room.
