SCO of the Month
Our seventh SCO of the Month for 2020/21 is Callaghan French (Humanities), who has done some fantastic work around supporting and improving students’ Mental Health and Wellbeing. His organisation of a Q&A with the author Aoife McElwain is a particular highlight here, where students were able to open up and discuss resilience, burnout, and balancing workload among others. His overall contribution to the School’s community of students and staff has consistently impressed.
“I would like to commend Callaghan for his organisation of the event and the sensitive way in which he approached the session on the day. Having a student lead this session helped students to feel more comfortable with opening up and asking questions.”

Society of the Month
Congratulations to our Society of the Month for March, the School of Creative Arts Society. This year marks the first of (hopefully) many Creative March months! The School of Creative Arts Society has done the most monumental job of inspiring students to be creative throughout the month of March, and to brighten up spring by encouraging us to get involved with a whopping 17 different events. The society committee has collaborated with a number of different societies including the LGBT+ Society, Fashion Society, Education Society and Marvelous Disney Society, and has demonstrated an incredible amount of organisation and enthusiasm. We can't wait for next March.

Student Rep of the Month
1st Place = Amanpreet Kaur (Business School)
Amanpreet was nominated for her proactive engagement with the students she represents, including those who only recently joined the University as part of the January 2021 intake. She is always active in online classes, taking feedback on the overall teaching and learning experience where necessary. In addition, her organisation of meetings, and general community-building between others has helped students stay connected throughout the difficulties of COVID-19.
2nd Place = Jade Childs (Humanities)
Jade has continually provided excellent feedback from her class cohort, proving to be essential in helping the School know what’s been going well and what needs improving. In meetings, she can always be counted on to voice her thoughts and opinions, and the positive, constructive approach she takes in doing so allows for meaningful discussions to unfold, and actions to be agreed.
3rd Place = Ana-Maria Ciofu (Joint Honours)
Ana-Maria has actively participated in several meetings across Schools for the purpose of enhancing students’ educational experience. Even in times of low engagement, she has persisted in collecting students’ views, and her contributions have been wide-ranging; from suggestions for new assessment ideas, to the methods of teaching employed across the programmes she sits on.
