Newsletter Week 3






We are…..Week 3 into University life! A big thanks to the gals and guys that picked up their chlamydia tests, free sanitary products and contraception as part of SAFE Week. It might be embarrassing to discuss, but it’s all about keeping you safe, healthy and squeaky clean.

A shout out to Sergio Dhillon, a Student Activities Auntie who I was emailed about by a parent regarding move in & Fresher’s help – you’re the realest! We responded to your shouts of help and managed to get the original Skint prices back (Saturday 13th October). Keep buying your Societies Ball tickets –earlybird have all sold out – eek!

Our thoughts and prayers are with those all that suffered and are suffering in the Vegas attack this week, please pop in for support if needed. With myself, the big & scary University meetings will start soon (ahhh!) so talk to me and use me to voice your concerns – I exist for you all. 

Keep hydrated & healthily fed, studying hard and enjoying your days of this amazing student life…. 

Lots and lots of President love from me, Reema
