The beginning of this year has been great. We have been able to welcome new students with an amazing range of arrivals weekend events. Partnering up with The Ox we helped deliver an amazing Freshers’ Week with lots of different events for everyone. I watched the Greatest Showman for the first time in the hall at our sing along!
I recently attended the NUS Zones conference where I represented the views of Oxford Brookes Students at a national level speaking with other Universities on strategies moving forward.
We also launched our #Rentsmart Campaign which saw a Housing fair pop-up in the forum, we had lots of local organisations to help you get advice on moving in to your first house. We even had a fire engine outside! We ran a competition for students for a £100 John Lewis voucher for their housing horror story, hopefully now you can get some nice things to make your house feel a lot better.
I am really looking forward to the rest of the year, we have some great events planned and I look forward to all the great stuff we can all do together. To the freshers, welcome to the family. To continuing students, come see us and talk about your experiences, and to everyone, we are here to support, represent and be there for you.
