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 an exciting beginning of the new month for the City West Campus Representatives-both Ryan and I, as we arranged the first ever student catch-up on the last day of March. I was eager to spend the month of April and rest of the term based on all the feedback we get from the catch-up. Those of you who couldn’t make it on our first catch-up, I am sure we will see you at the next one at the end of this month. This is your opportunity to shape your experience on your own campus.
March 30, 2017:
