Happy New Year everyone!
My name is Bridget Barletta and this year I have the great opportunity of returning as the City West Campus Rep for 2019! I’m excited to continue along this journey and to deliver great things for this new year. I have a great passion for UniSA, and cannot wait to assist in making our Uni an extraordinary place for learning and life experiences.
This year in particular, I really want to focus on engagement, particularly within City West. I have plans to get even further involved in my role as a USASA rep, and hopefully help make some important decisions that will benefit us as students.
A bit about me, I am a fourth year double Law/HR student at City West campus. This is my second year on the USASA board.
Please get into contact with me if you would like to chat – I’m very approachable and willing to be open minded to any ideas that people have. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary of activity
To kick off a brilliant year ahead, I attended the USASA board retreat on the 22nd and 23rd of January. This board retreat was designed to bring all USASA reps and President together with staff, to learn more about our roles and how we can make a difference. I have taken a lot way from this retreat (even though I am in my second year on Board!) and have gained a bigger outlook on USASA’s potential in shaping the student experience, for years to come. After meeting with other representatives, I am very excited to be on this years board as I feel like we have a great team moving forward that will be able to achieve a lot!
January has also been a bit of a planning month for me when it comes to USASA – I’ve done a bit of reading and thinking about what I should get involved in this year. There are an abundance of events/committees/activations that us reps can be involved in, meaning there is a lot of choice! This has meant that I’ve spent a bit of my time emailing, organising for meetings and events and commitments for the year (ie – O-Week, Academic Board Committees, Campus fairs).
