Executive column

Welcome back! We’ve been working hard over the break so you have a great trimester two. If you are lost our Kelburn offices have moved up one level next to Mount Street Bar and Café in the Student Union Building as part of the Campus Hub Project. You’ll still be access all the welfare, class rep information, services like car parks and lockers, clubs and events from here.

The first week back is Re-Orientation, and the VUWSA Clubs and Events Team and the VBC 88.3FM have been working frantically to ensure you have a fun-filled week. There will be a week of gigs, speed dating, poker series and movie screenings.

If you missed your chance to join a club or sports team, you have another chance in the Quad between 12 and 2PM to see what tickles your fancy. Keep an eye out for in Salient.

Campus Safety Audit
This trimester the Welfare Team will be working with Caitlin, your Women’s Rights Officer will be undertaking a Campus Safety Audit. We’ll be investigating where you feel unsafe on campus and what we can do as your Students’ Association to increase your feeling of safety while on and around campus. If you want to help out, come and have a chat with one of us.
