What your reps are up to...

NSU reps volunteer to speak up for Northumbria students, giving their time to improve the student experience. This blog is their place to share views and updates, and we hope it gives an interesting insight into some of the work going on to speak up for students at Northumbria. 

A well overdue blog

Well, what can I say except uploading a monthly blog didn’t really go to plan. Part of me has been extremely busy whilst the other half has been extremely ill which has limited my representation role so apologies in advance.

Firstly, I want to say congratulations to those who have been elected and/ or re-elected in the NSU elections on 9/02/2018. It was a fantastic evening. Also, for all those who ran in the elections, you did a fab job and should be extremely proud of yourselves for putting yourselves forward.

Secondly, the news about Coach Lane Campus Café and Shop has not only saddened me but I know has saddened a lot of you. To make up for this, there is going to be stalls at Coach Lane on Tuesday 8th May asking you to write on blown up blueprints of the café and shop so we can see what you want to be brought into the University where the shop and café used to be. This is an amazing opportunity for you to be involved and have your voices heard so if you have even just one minute to spare to write something on, please do as every voice counts and really does matter!

Myself and one of your Nursing, Midwifery and Health Department Representatives, Jemma, had a meeting with Chartwell’s about food prices, options, and customer service in regards to Foragers and Communitea. Jemma had collated a lot of feedback from you and every single piece was discussed. This was extremely positive and although I want to inform you about all the ins and outs, this is ongoing but hopefully you will notice some small changes which will make a big difference soon.

I know it is an extremely busy time for everyone with assignments and exams and I wish each and every one of you the best of luck! I, like you, am currently revising for an exam so my next blog will more than likely be in either June or July with some exciting news!

As always, I am available via my email: grace.lawson@northumbria.ac.uk
