Congratulations to Samantha Grace, Course Rep for BA Drama & Performance, who was chosen by the Students' Union to be the April winner of Course Rep of the Month as she has been doing an outstanding job. Her nominations read that:
"Sammy is consistent and is always trying to find new ways to make us as students more satisfied and comfortable with our course as a whole. Sammy only has her students best interests at heart and always puts their needs at the top of the problem list! She's been very effective to the course with her time as course rep, giving us more opportunities to voice our concerns and pleasures!"
"They're always on top of everything - really takes the time to make sure all our voices are heard. Supports clear communication between us and Course Director/lecturers by providing in depth feedback. Inclusive of everyone."
"She has always made sure our needs have been voiced to our teachers and i know that in the next year our problems will be addressed accordingly"
The SU created this reward in order to recognise all the thousands of hours of volunteering that Course Reps do representing the academic interests of students from their course. We wanted to find a way to make the Reps feel great, and for staff and students to hear about all the awesome things they are doing.
Anyone can nominate a Rep for Course Rep of the Month, staff and students alike, and it's a very quick and easy form which can be found here.
Even if your nominee doesn't win, they'll still be told that they were nominated and will get to hear the lovely things that were written about them, so keep nominating!
