Was interviewed and an article was published by The Gaudie on what my experiences of having ADHD at university.
Went to the Interfaith Kirking of the Students Association. This is where students from various religions come together and typically do readings with regards to their faith. All the Sabbactical Officers and members of Student Council are invited to this. It is a beautiful event, and have attended previously plus the free curry is very popular also.
Also Luke Humberstone the NUS Scotland Officer visited us to talk about our work, plans we had and any concerns also.
Also had a meeting about Safety on campus, this has resulted in lighting being improved across campus, more visible and increased security patrols, a big push with regards to the safezone app.
The Student Partnership is nearly finished and should be put to various committees including student council in the next semester.
Also attended the Aurora Network Conference with Lawson. The Network is 9 research focused institutions across Europe. The conference was in Norwich this year. Lawson and I both sit on the Aurora Student Council and the council are going to publish a position paper on sexual assault on campuses, summer exchanges for students to universities within the network and also an award for academic papers from students.
