Planning of Dragons Den 2 

Following up from the success we had from the previous event I am in the process of putting together another Dragons Den on the 2nd of the March. We have started planning and working together with Essex start-ups as well as local businesses to secure funding for the project. I will entreat every one of you to work on your business ideas in order to win amazing prizes from the Dragons. Don’t forget to put it in your diaries.

90’s House Party by SU Lounge committee

Plans were made from the previous committee meeting in December to host a welcome back party in this term. I hope many of you who came had fun and for those of you who couldn’t make hold on tight because we have another party coming up soon by the end of the term. Kindly use the link below to watch what happened on the night.

Sexual Harassment and Alcohol awareness campaign

I supported our women’s officer in executing this event in the SU Lounge. Many of the students liked the idea and also got engaged throughout the whole process. Students were directed on what and where to report in case they encounter such issues.

Meeting New Oral Health Students

I got the opportunity to welcome a group of new Oral health students into the campus. I introduce them to the services the students union offer to each and every student on campus and also entreated them to make good use of these services and opportunities provided.

Burns Night

As already stated in the previous reports, the SU Lounge is your space and therefore you have the right to host any events you think your colleagues will like and Burns night came about as a result of this initiative. 2 students came to me and explained to me how this celebration is very important to them and also assured me that students will like it as well and we made happen. The event was well supported by students and they did enjoy as well. Kindly us the link below to check what happened during the night.

We have completed this idea. The seating arrangement has been made, Amazon fire stick have been installed and new football table has been put in place. The university has considered a different colour patterns to be painted as well us changing the carpet in summer

2. SU Support with Housing

I have had couple of meetings with the manager of SUHomes in Colchester and she has agreed to provide good letting guide packs for students in a couple of weeks ahead. On the other hand we are in the process of coming together to prepare a paper to the Southend council to offer accreditation to landlords in Southend.
