Monday 19th March sees the annual election of the ULIP Students' Union. It is an incredibly important day of the year for ULIP, as those elected will shape the experiences of all students the following year at university. Although voting is not compulsory, the higher the turnout, the more democratic the SU can be. Here is the list of candidates standing for election on Monday.
President - Rachel Addison-Child, Tom Gardner, Joe Lennard, Sam O'Doherty
Vice President - George Bagguley, George Greaves
Events - John Helm
Secretary - Linh-Chi Nguyen
Welfare - Sophie Lawrence
Treasurer - Agnieszka Konieczny
BA3 - Laurie Ainscough, Phoebe Cripps
BA2 - Sophie Small, Ben Wright
Tomorrow, Thursday 15th at 17h30, the election hustings/question time will take place. This is a vital part of the election process. Candidates will have the opportunity to present their manifestos and all students will subsequently have the chance to pose any questions to candidates. Although, as you can see, for certain positions, candidates are standing unopposed, it is still a great opportunity to hear their plans for next year and raise any queries that you may have.
If you cannot attend the question time event, have a look at the posters and manifestos around the university for further information on all the candidates. Either way, make sure you come and vote on Monday to elect the SU that you want to help guide you through your next year at university.
Whether you are single or attached, we have got a fantastic evening lined up for you to celebrate true love and to have fun before Reading Week. This year, we are combining two great ULIP traditions: the canteen event and Belushi's!! Crazy.
Come to the canteen at 5.30pm for a 'Take Me Out' themed evening and then we will head on over to the Student Night at Belushi's where you can party the night away (maybe with a new found love!) and start your Reading Week with a stonking hangover. Delightful. Tickets are just 5 euros. Thats 5 euros for 2 parties!!! What a bloody steal. How could you resist?????
love from your valentine ;)
No likey? No lightey! It’s the cheesiest dating show on TV and is coming to ULIP on the 9th February! Charlie Moore and Tom Gardner will be in Paddy McGuinness' Lancastrian shoes for what promises to be an absolute corker of an event.
Followed by an after party at Belushi's - more information to come. Boys and girls, contact head of events, Michaela Neame, to participate. (You do not have to be single to take part!)
Let the onion see the bhaji!
The Big Fat Quiz of The Year was a huge success. It took place in the canteen on Thursday 19th January and was expertly written by Tom Gardner, John Helm, George Bagguley and Joe Lennard. The quiz was hosted by Charlie Moore - a few funny jokes, but on the whole his humour (as per usual) was more miss than hit. The quizzers went straight from the event to the Hideout in Bastille, where the quiztivities continued until late. Keep your eyes peeled for future canteen events!
