Hi Everyone, let us introduce ourselves as your college office bearers for 2016! It’s the new year and a new semester, meaning we have just seen a hoard of new students moving into college for the first time. While everyone was partying at Manning or watching Shannon Noll, the new residence of the University of Sydney’s several colleges were also partying at Manning, watching Shannon Noll, and completing and competing in a number of O-week College events. If you are wondering why some students have been wandering to class in Academic Robes while carrying bricks… they are either from St Andrew’s, or masochists.
The past two weeks have seen the return of second, third, and even fourth, fifth and sixth year college students to the place they know as their ‘home away from home’.
As the 2016 College Office bearers, it is our role to represent the voices of students living at the University’s Residential Colleges on the Student Representative Council. In this respect, we are also a point of contact for such students wanting connect with the University’s administration.
In addition, we want to ensure that these students have the best time possible when living within the University of Sydney. We hope to explore issues of safety on campus, and address issues of Wom*n’s representation within college administration. In addition, we hope to better bridge the divide between college and university life, and have more students engaging with SRC collectives and utilising our services.
