Hey guys!! I hope you have been enjoying your time in University.

UUSU staff and student officers at the Student Excellence Awards 2018

I can happily say that we had our Creativity and Diversity Big Lunch Event, working close with Ulster University staff to ensure international staff and students from the commonwealth and came together to connect. We had lovely music and henna tattoos for the staff and students everyone seemed to enjoy it, was a very good day.

We had our student voice forum in the Belfast campus. In attendance was the Provost of Belfast & Jordanstown Raffaella Folli, the Deputy Vice Chancellor Alastair Adair, Chief Operating Officer Niamh Lamond and the new Director of Campus Life, Amanda Castray.

We had our Academic Rep Elections.  The results can be found here

We also had our Student Excellence Awards, this was a huge success thanks to our two Student Activities Coordinators Karen Pothin and Catherine Quinn. I was very happy to have been your host for the event, I felt very proud and privileged to announce and congratulate the winners.
