Dark afternoons, hot chocolate and layers of outerwear, all mean that Christmas is near. But there’s no slowing down at your SU.  With activities, and more,  planned up to and  throughout the Christmas break, so be prepared.

Seriously I love Christmas and the lead up to this Christmas has been great.

With the end of Black History Month we have seen the rise of our first SU Student Parliament with representatives; Sam from East 15, Greta and Rahul from EBS Undergrads and Ayo for Postgrads.

In our first meeting, we discussed our Southend Big 4. The four most important things students voted for that they would like the SU to work on this year.

These are

  • Mental Health
  • My Course
  • SU Lounge
  • Environment

Together with the SU parliament I have already started working on the Big 4 and don’t worry, you’ll hear all about it in the new year!

But that’s not all we’ve been doing, we also had our Dragons’ Den where our students pitched their innovative new ideas to a panel of judges, congratulations to Mikaela Ruddel for winning with her Volcanic Sparkes business idea.

In case you’re suffering from FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) we still our Ugly Christmas jumper party this Friday 7 December in the SU Lounge from 9pm, this also involves free entry to MooMoo nightclub with your student card.

Happy Christmas everyone!
