A Look Back on Stress Less Fest 2015

In General

There was the petting zoo, and the results hub. Days you could play on huge inflatables and days you could pet a puppy on the Redbrick. Free showings from Union Films and LinkedIn Labs, as well as classes on how to understand academic stress. It’s safe to say that Stress Less fest 2015 was bigger and better than any before, so let’s go through some of our best bits!

There was big love for the free bananas:

And everybody seemed to enjoy the petting zoo:

We spoke to volunteer Cinema Manager, third year Music student Soph Isherwood, about what winning at the EVAs has meant to them.

Graduation 2014 Arrives

In General

As you will know, last week marked the beginning of graduation ceremonies on campus. Droves of students have been turning up in their finest dress, both excited and nervous. The words on most graduands’ lips spoke excitement for this official-feeling step into the real world, and mostly nervous about this ‘strange’ handshake they had never encountered before… well that and falling over in front of family, friends and lectures. What can we say, so far the ceremonies have been nothing but a great success, campus being blessed with beautiful sunshine to accompany the celebrations.

Even though professional photographs are available … Read the rest

Union Films gets family friendly

In General

In a bid to cater for student parents studying at Southampton, plans are forming to bring family-friendly Union Films screenings to SUSU. The hope is that, in giving them the opportunity to meet and mingle, we will be able to foster a stronger community of mature students and their children.

The proposal has been well received so far and discussion is currently underway in the Southampton Mature Students group on Facebook.

Ideas brought up so far include:

  • The potential of a first screening on a weekend during the start of the Summer term, if not during the Easter holidays.

  • Suggested
