Can you believe its 2018 already?! Happy New year everyone; looks like 2018 is going to be a busy one for the SU. We have so much more coming up!
Nominations Sabbatical Officer Elections
Nominations for Sabb elections have opened today & we’re so excited. Although it’s always sad to see our current Sabbs go, it’s great to have new people join the team. The election process itself is always a laugh. You can sign up here to get live updates about the elections directly to your inbox.
Sabbatical Officer Elections
Then later in the year, we will have the Sabb Officer Elections themselves!
Refreshers & Housing Fayre
On the 1st February, we’ll be hosting our huge Refreshers & Housing Fayre at the O2 Guildhall in Southampton. With loads of local business there, prizes to win and taste samples from local takeaways & restaurants; you don't want to miss this! To help you with housing, we also have lots of advice and a chance to speak to SASSH accredited letting agents. Not to mention more about volunteering opportunities and charities the SU are working with & how to get involved.
Sit back and relax with coffee and live music! Coffee House is a great chance to get used to playing for a live crowd, a relaxing way to spend the afternoon and fun to do with friends. This Coffee House will be held 12-2pm in The Den on 22nd Feb 2018. If you would like to play at our next Coffee House please get in touch with Anna from the SU via firstname.lastname@example.org
Possibly the most exciting event of the year – Puppy Room is coming back! Last year you loved meeting the adorable four-legged bundles of fun, so we’ve made it a regular fixture. Keep an eye out on our Facebook Page to see more about when & where!
Student Council is the single most important representative forum of the Students' Union and the student's voice. With meetings this semester all about what is happening at your SU & what the Sabb officers are up to, keep an eye out on our What’s On Page to keep up to date. Also, remember that any student can attend & raise a motion at Student Council, so submit yours now.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends, help the community and it looks great on your CV too. Solent Students’ Union is getting involved with national Student Volunteering Week in February 2018, so this could be the perfect time to get involved with volunteering for the first time.
Pop Up Union
Throughout this term we will be continuing to bring the SU to you with Pop Up Union. At Pop Up Union we ask you questions like ‘Would you rather see more computers or social spaces at the uni?’, hand out free sweets, and tell you all about what we are campaigning for on your behalf. We will be updating our What’s On Page with details about the next Pop Up Union’s as we go.
There’s all this & so much more going on this term! The best way to stay up to date with what we’re up to is on our social media, so Like our Facebook Page & follow us on Twitter for regular updates.
