As the new academic year gets underway, we’re pleased and excited to announce the brand new Bath College Students’ Union blog, along with our brand new Students’ Union team! I’m going to start with thanking those who took the time to vote in last May’s elections, where myself and 5 others were elected. For those who weren’t here last year this is your Student’s Union team so far…
Kez Hawkins- President
Pete Day – Vice President
Dan Collier- Sports and Societies Officer
George Friend- Equality and diversity Officer
Musa Baruwa- Events Officer
Lewi Hall – HE Officer
Those of you who are new and went to the induction at the forum, would know that we all took part in talking to over 800 students, which was totally nerve racking! My hands were shaking! By the end of the week having spoken twice in front of 800 students, and over at Somer Valley with a smaller crowd, my nerves had calmed, no longer shaking anyway!
Over the summer the Participation Team worked extremely hard organizing Fresher’s fair over both campuses. I hope you enjoyed it and got some free pizza! Hopefully now you have a better understanding of what is around bath and what is available to you at college. The gladiator ring went down well with all students at city center and the surf simulator at Somer Valley had big competition to see who could stay on the longest! It was great to watch, I met so many new faces and hopefully you’re all still wearing your Students’ Union wrist bands.
Although September has been busy I really enjoyed doing the chalk board activities where I found out loads about what students want to achieve by the time they leave Bath College. It was really enlightening to see your aspirations for the year.
September has been a crazy one, but look forward to meeting many more of you over the next few months.
