I hope those who had a study break had a chance to get some rest from the busy uni life.
September was my first official month being a Student Rep for City West. With the first month came many first experiences and first meetings, these included the USASA September Board Meeting, Education Committee Meeting, training for Formal Inquiry/Academic Review meetings and for the first time being a part of the Business School Formal Inquiry.
Though sitting on a formal inquiry is not too exciting and can be overwhelming, it comes with the role of a student representative, to be a voice for the students at UniSA when they need it most i.e. when they’re facing an issue regarding their studies.
On a brighter note, the Board Meeting was a great opportunity to meet others involved with USASA, including most of the other USASA Student Reps. And the Education Committee is working hard to find strategies to improve education and student representation.

It was amazing to learn about what I have never known before. Being a representative is a stressful responsibility but meaningful as I will be able to understand more about students’ needs and help make their experience at university a memorable one. I have also met with Bridget to discuss about a few ideas including:
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
