Jess' Fortnightly Clubs and Societies Update

Friday 01-12-2017 - 11:59

In the run up to Christmas and with fixtures ending, I’ve had time to think about how to develop our clubs and societies a little bit more over the past couple of weeks. Here’s what I’ve been up to…

This week, we’ve been looking at mental health within clubs. I’m pleased to announce that every club has now got a member within it who is trained in mental health awareness thanks to Sport St Mary’s who have provided the sessions. This means that our students are better equipped than ever to spot anyone who’s having difficulties with their mental health. If anyone does have any difficulty, this will now be picked up so that we can then make sure these students get the help they need. It’s really important to me that every club and society member is looked after by their peers and the University, so I’m really proud of this achievement!

I've also been hard at work on introducing some new societies this year, along with all of our new presidents who have been busy promoting their societies. I'm pleased to announce that this year we've added the following societies:

  • Art
  • Cine Club
  • CocSoc
  • Fifa
  • Horse Riding
  • Mature
  • Natural Health
  • SIMMSnow
  • Simmies Angels
  • SMUC Radio

And in addition to this, we'll be ratifying the following societies soon:

  • South Asian
  • Table Top
  • K-Pop
  • CSWhy (criminology and Sociology)
