After what has felt like a gazillion days, January is has now officially been and gone (YAY). And whilst it might still feel a bit chilly outside, at least the nights are drawing out and Spring is approaching.
Here at the Students' Union, there's always something exciting going on. Check out what you can expect this month in our latest 'What's On'.
3rd - 7th February
It’s officially Change Week! This is your chance to tell us what you love about the University of Worcester, but also what you’d like to see changed. From your academic experience, to student life and support, to campus and facilities, it can be about transforming your assignments, to something as simple as getting a microwave at City Campus! Your feedback matters to both us and the University, and this week is your chance to tell us how you feel. Find out more about Change Week at www.worcsu.com/makeachange or head over to the online Ideas Forum to submit your suggestions for change electronically.
You’re our only hope….
