Keeping up with SRUCSA March 2022

Wow! March was much more busy than we expected. It absolutely flew by. It felt like our feet did not touch the floor. The big highlight was the SRUCSA Elections. The most important event in our calendar. This year we had several big successes – More nominees than ever before, five nominees for a one position and the second the greatest number of students ever taking part in voting. The number one turnout position is still the year the merger colleges combined to form SRUCSA. So, our student body successfully chose their leaders for the 22/23 year, and we are excited to work with Claire, Liam, and Roz.

A graphic text image designed to look like a news paper - it reads "SRUCSA NEWS, SRUC agrees to release timetables in a timely manner!, Last term, we found out from Class Reps that having their timetables given to them last minute causes a huge problem. Having a timetable that allows you to balance your life, college work and paid work is critical to a good outcome. In order to make change happen, we took a paper to the Academic Board in November 2021 and SRUC agreed to address the problem. We will make sure that they do."

A Time(table) to Celebrate!

This year, term 1 timetables were released to students a few days before Welcome Week and just over a week before term started.  This just isn’t enough time for students...

Online has its place, but being face-to-face is something else. Being in the same room as someone allows for informal chats, updates, and opportunities to support students directly.

Disability and Me – International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which this year has the theme ‘Not All Disabilities Are Visible’. As the Students with Disabilities officer, I thought I would share my experiences of being disabled in an ableist world.

Keeping up with SRUCSA September 2021

September is when it all happens – we get to welcome back returning students and show the newbies what it is all about. We kept up to date with the EIS/SRUC dispute SRUCSA has an ongoing training plan for this year, so we had lots of that too.

What is disability?

In August 1983, I was almost five years old, and I started school, but unlike my classmates I could not write my own name. I could not write it due to a learning disability called dyspraxia. This meant coordinating the pencil was impossible for me.
