Here’s how we’ve stuck to our promises during semester one 2017:

 

  • We’ve fought for the things that matter:

We renamed a room in our building following student feedback.
You took part in a prefrendum and told us you supported a student’s idea to rename our Aung San Suu Kyi room due to her controversial actions. We listened, asked for your ideas on what we should rename the room to, and the Kitty Wilkinson room was born. We’re proud that you are so actively involved in our democratic structures.

  • We’ve made sure the Guild stays at the heart of campus:

Held over 1000 hours worth of activities and events in our building.
It started with welcome week – filled with comedy, club nights, film screenings and the ever popular Bongo’s Bingo. Since then, our building has been bustling with advice drop-ins, elections, society meet and greets, bulb planting, coffee house sessions, a Gin Festival, and more quizzes than you can shake a stick at. Whatever your reason for being here, we’ve been happy to have you at the heart of where everything happens on campus.

  • We’ve developed students:

Provided over 250 volunteering opportunities across Merseyside.
Giving something back and boosting your personal development is just as important to us as it is to you. So, we’ve provided opportunities to roll your sleeves up and get stuck into working with young people, learning the art of beekeeping, being a friendly ear for students who call our Nightline service, and taking part in bucket collections and coordinating events across the City. We love giving you the feel good factor and enhancing your employability skills along the way.

  • We’ve supported students:

We’ve provided academic, housing, financial and wellbeing advice to over 300 students.
We’ve been here to help you when you’ve faced issues like changing your course, moving properties, having money worries or problems with your mental health. Remember that while we work with the University, we are a separate body - and what you tell us remains completely confidential. Our advice service is open 9am until 5pm, Monday to Friday, if and when you need us. You can make an appointment, or just call into a drop-in session.
