Welcome to the official launch of the Student Opportunities Newsletter! At the end of every month, we will issue a newsletter to all committee members with any updates from the team, upcoming dates to be aware of, and other important news for you to be aware of - so make sure you keep an eye on your inboxes!
We’re officially into the start of term, and it has been amazing to see everything you’ve got up to so far! Freshers’ Fair was incredibly successful with over 3500 students coming to see what student groups Royal Holloway has to offer. All of your taster sessions have engaged hundreds of students and the variety of events and activities you have planned have given 'freshers' a great start to their university experience.
Keep up the good work, we’re all looking forward to working with you over the course of the year!
Having food at your events? Don’t forget the new legislation Natasha’s Law that you must follow. The general gist is that you need to have ingredients displayed for all food you have at your event.
Student Group Training Pt.2
Thank you to everyone who attended Student Group Training Pt.2! If you were unable to make it, don’t worry - all sessions were recorded and are available on Freshdesk.
We’ve launched the Access Fund, which allows your members to apply for some financial support to put towards a student group membership or other costs relating to joining your group.
We’re hosting another online by-election to help fill the last remaining committee positions. Nominations are open now and close on Thursday 7 October, so make sure to encourage your new members to run for a role and be a part of leading your student group.
Dates for the Diary
Nominations for the by-election run until 7 October, with voting open from 11-13 October. Don’t forget to get promoting!
The first Committee Café of the year is being held on Tuesday 9 November - make sure to note down the date as it will be a great opportunity to meet fellow committee members and share ideas.
Student Group Bulletin Board
This is a space for you to get messages out to other committee members. Whether that be an event you want to collaborate with other groups on, a call for support, or details of services your group can offer, send us your bulletins and we’ll include them in our newsletter. The deadline to submit for the next newsletter is Wednesday 20 October.
