Top five tips for Freshers / Pum prif awgrymiadau ar gyfer y Glas

Thu 21 May 2015

 
With A level exams ongoing it’s almost time to think of Freshers and the plans that come with. Freshers is such an exciting time for any student, you make new friends, see new places and often it’s your first time away from your close friends and family. Speaking to Wales Online this week Hayley Harris at Swansea University Students’ Union Advice and Support Centre gives some advice to those who will be joining us in September (and a reminder to those who are staying with us!):
 
“Our staff offer free, impartial advice on housing and academic problems as well as financial, consumer and personal issues.
 
Here are my top five tips for Freshers:
 
1. Meet lots of new people, join clubs and groups you are interested in.
2. Find a great house with great friends (students can pop in to see us for some advice on house hunting and get their contract checked for free).
3. Get the balance right. Have fun and enjoy a good social life but make sure that your studies are still a priority. Eating sensibly and exercising will help keep you motivated.
4. Be organised! Make sure you know deadline dates, plan your workload in advance and this will save you last minute stress.
5. Don’t suffer in silence. If you have a problem or you don’t understand something, ASK! There are lots of different support systems at Swansea University to help you when the going gets tough.”
This is an extract from an original article from Wales Online. You can find the original article here: http://bit.ly/1FEkOES

Gydag arholiadau lefel A yn barhau mae bron yn amser i feddwl am Wythnos y Glas a'r cynlluniau sy’n ynghlwm. Mae Wythnos y Glas yn adeg cyffroes i unrhyw fyfyriwr, byddwch yn gwneud ffrindiau newydd, gweld llefydd newydd ac yn aml dyma eich tro cyntaf i ffwrdd oddi wrth eich ffrindiau agos a theulu. Wrth siarad â Wales Online wythnos hon mae Hayley Harris o Ganolfan Cymorth a Chynghori Undeb y Myfyrwyr Prifysgol Abertawe yn rhoi cyngor i’r rhai fydd yn ymuno a ni yn fis Medi (a nodyn atgoffa i’r rhai sy’n aros gyda ni!):
“Mae ein staff yn cynnig cyngor rhad ac am ddim, diduedd ar broblemau tai ac academaidd yn ogystal ag ariannol, defnyddwyr a materion personol.
 
Dyma fy pum prif awgrymiadau ar gyfer y Glas:
1.   Cyfarfod llawer o bobl newydd, ymuno a chlybiau a grwpiau gennych ddiddordeb ynddo.
2.   Dod o hyd i dy gwych gyda ffrindiau gwych (gall myfyrwyr galw heibio i’n gweld am gyngor ar chwilio am dy, gan gael eu contract wedi ei gwirio yn rhad ac am ddim gennym).
3.   Cael y cydbwysedd cywir. Cewch hwyl a mwynhau bywyd cymdeithasol da ond sicrhewch fod eich astudiaethau dal yn flaenoriaeth. Bydd bwyta’n synhwyrol ac ymarfer corff yn helpu cadw eich cymhelliant.
4.   Byddwch yn drefnus! Gwnewch yn siwr eich bod yn gwybod y dyddiadau cau, cynlluniwch eich llwyth gwaith ymlaen llaw gan y bydd hyn yn arbed straen munud olaf.
5.   Peidiwch â dioddef yn dawel. Os oes gennych unrhyw broblem neu nad ydych yn deall rhywbeth GOFYNNWCH! Mae llawer o wahanol systemau cymorth ym Mhrifysgol Abertawe i’ch help pan fydd pethau yn mynd yn anodd.”

Mandela Plaque Reinstated in SU Building // Adferiad Llechen Mandela yn Adeilad Undeb

Mon 11 May 2015

Nelson Mandela Plaque Reinstated in Student Union Building.

Our Education Officer to-be and current BME Students Officer Robiu Salisu hosted an official naming of the Mandela Suite in Union House by reinstating a Nelson Mandela memorial plaque.

The plaque was originally unveiled in 1985 by a representative of the African National Congress in Britain shortly before the Union building was named ‘Mandela House’. It was previously erected to honour Nelson Mandela’s contribution to the struggle for freedom in South Africa. During renovation works the plaque was removed from the Unions wall and was not replaced.

After being recently rediscovered by Robiu the plaque will now take pride of place in the Mandela Suite. On the day the Student Union also erected two collages which were created from Robiu’s 'if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything' campaign which was ran during Freshers Week last September. The campaign was ran to promote diversity and equality on the Swansea University campus which saw students holding up a whiteboard with their statement of 'what they stand up for and why'.

After the recent passing of Nelson Mandela the plaque is as important now than what it was in 1985. The official naming of the Mandela Suite will be a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s achievements and the ongoing pursuit of freedom.

Adferiad Llechen Nelson Mandela yn Adeilad Undeb y Myfyrwyr.

Fe wnaeth ein Swyddog Addysg dyfodol a’n Swyddog Myfyrwyr Du a Lleiafrifoedd Ethnig presennol, Robiu Salisu gynnal seremoni enwi swyddogol ar gyfer Ystafell Mandela yn Nhy’r Undeb wrth adfer llechen goffa Nelson Mandela. Cafodd y llechen ei ddadorchuddio yn wreiddiol yn 1985 gan gynrychiolydd o’r Gyngres Genedlaethol Affricanaidd ym Mhrydain yn fyr cyn i adeilad yr Undeb gael ei enwi’n ‘Dy Mandela’. Cafodd ei godi’n flaenorol er anrhydedd i gyfraniad Nelson Mandela at ymdrechion dros rhyddid yn Ne Affrica. Yn ystod gwaith adnewyddu cafodd y llechen ei symud o waliau’r Undeb a ni chafodd ei ailosod. Ar ôl cael ei hailddarganfod yn ddiweddar gan Robiu, mae’r llechen nawr yn cymryd y prif le yn yr Ystafell Mandela. Ar yr un dydd, codwyd dau collage gan Undeb y Myfyrwyr a greuwyd yn seiliedig ar ymgyrch ‘if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything’ Robiu a wnaeth rhedeg yn ystod wythnos y glas mis Medi diwethaf. Rhedwyd yr ymgyrch er mwyn hybu amrywiaeth a chydraddoldeb ar gampws Prifysgol Abertawe, a welodd myfyrwyr yn dal bwrdd gwyn gyda’i datganiad o ‘beth mae’n yn sefyll am, a pham’. Ers marwolaeth diweddar Nelson Mandela, mae’r llechen nawr mor bwysig ag yr oedd yn 1985. Bydd enwi swyddogol yr Ystafell Mandela yn ddathliad o gyflawniadau Nelson Mandela a’r ymchwil cyfredol dros rhyddid.

Union Helps In Nepal Disaster Fundraising // Undeb Yn Helpu Gyda'r Trychineb Nepal

Thu 07 May 2015

Union Helps In Nepal Disaster Fundraising

Swansea University Students’ Union helped join the effort to raise money for the Nepalese earthquake disaster this Tuesday. In partnership with the charity ShelterBox, Swansea University Students’ Union rallied together students across the campus in a bid to raise money for survivors still living in the devastated areas, hosting an emergency tent and a bake sale outside Fulton House.

ShelterBox is a charity which provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities which have been overwhelmed by the disaster and humanitarian crisis. So far the earthquake is thought to have killed some 5,500 people in Nepal; to put this in perspective, that’s every administrative and postgraduate students at the University.

Matthew Roberts from ShelterBox was quoted as saying “The main goal will be to asses those worst effected and to assist them by providing shelter warmth and dignity in the form of a big green ShelterBox.  Although the equipment is a short term solution to get those worst affected up on their feet following a natural or manmade disaster, it is often the case that the equipment will form a vital part of life for many years to come as people rebuild their lives.”

Through the students’ great baking and ShelterBox’s eye catching emergency tent over £600 was raised for the Nepalese crisis. This money will help those effected by the earthquake in a desperate bid to return to normality.

Undeb Yn Helpu Gyda'r Trychineb Nepal

Gwnaeth Undeb y Myfyrwyr Prifysgol Abertawe helpu ymuno a’r ymdrech i godi arian ar gyfer drychineb ddaeargryn Nepal ar Ddydd Mawrth. Mewn partneriaeth gydag elusen Shelterbox, gwnaeth Undeb y Myfyriwr Prifysgol Abertawe ymgasglu myfyrwyr o amgylch y campws mewn ymgais i godi arian ar gyfer yr ardaloedd a chafodd ei dinistrio.

Gwnaeth gwirfoddolwyr yr Undeb cynnal pabell brys ShelterBox a gwerthu cacennau tu allan i Dy Fulton mewn ymgais i godi arian. Mae ShelterBox yn elusen sy’n darparu cysgod brys a chyflenwad hanfodol i gefnogi cymunedau sydd wedi eu llethu gan y trychineb a’r argyfwng dyngarol. Hyd yn hyn mae’r daeargryn wedi lladd rhyw 5,500 o bobl yn Nepal, sy’n cyfateb i holl staff gweinyddol a myfyrwyr ôl-raddedig yn y Brifysgol.

Meddai Matthew Roberts o Shelterbox. “Y prif nod fydd i asesu’r rhai a effeithir gwaethaf ac i’w cynorthwyo drwy ddarparu cynhesrwydd lloches ac urddas yn y ffurf o Shelterbox gwyrdd mawr. Er bod y cyfarpar yn ateb tymor byr i rai a effeithir gwaethaf gall helpu cael fyny ar eu traed yn dilyn trychineb, yn aml mae’r cyfarpar yn rhan hanfodol i fywyd llawer o bobl am flynyddoedd wrth ailadeiladu eu bywyd.”

Trwy bobi gwych y myfyrwyr a phabell brys trawiadol Shelterbox godwyd dros £600 ar gyfer argyfwng Nepal. Bydd yr arian hwn yn helpu’r rhai cafwyd ei heffeithio gan y ddaeargryn mewn ymgais i’w helpu dychwelyd i’r normalrwydd.

Not All Lost At Welsh Varsity // Popeth Ddim Wedi Ei Colli Yn Y Varsity Cymraeg

Fri 24 Apr 2015

Although we didn't win the Welsh Varsity, success came in a different medium this year

Not All Lost at Welsh Varsity/ Popeth Ddim Wedi Ei Colli Yn Y Varsity Cymraeg

Although we didn’t win the Welsh Varsity, success came in a different medium this year. The atmosphere was brilliant with the usual buzz of the competition and the sun itself seemed to also be on Swansea’s side but not even the sun could outshine the greatest success of the day…

Swansea University’s Sports Societies partnered up with Stonewall Cymru’s ‘Rainbow Laces’ campaign for 2015’s Welsh Varsity. In front of thousands of fans, competitors’ sported rainbow striped shoelaces in a stand against homophobic 'banter’ in sport both on and off the pitch.

Stonewall Cymru’s research with Sport Wales shows that one in three LGBT people have experienced exclusion from sport because of their sexual orientation, and three in four respondents reported hearing homophobic ‘banter’.  Ex- SUSU President and current Campaigns Manager at Stonewall Luke Young said “By wearing Rainbow laces at the Welsh Varsity, Cardiff and Swansea students are sending a powerful message that a player’s sexual orientation or gender identity should not be a barrier to taking part and that sport must be open to all.”

The campaign had huge success on the day, with Twitter buzzing with the hashtag #rainbowlaces and teams posting their multi-coloured laces.  The Union is honoured to support Stonewalls campaign and as Sports officer Charlotte Peters says ‘we want a sporting environment that’s welcoming to all. We’re proud to play our part’.


Er na enillom Varsity Cymru blwyddyn yma, death llwyddiant mewn ffurf gwahanol. Roedd yr awyrgylch yn anhygoel â bwrlwm arferol y chwarae a’r tywydd ei hunain fel pe taent o blaid Abertawe, ond ni all yr haul hyd yn oed ddisgleirio’n fwy na llwyddiant mwyaf y dydd….

Ymunodd Cymdeithasau Chwaraeon Prifysgol Abertawe gydag ymgyrch ‘Criau lliwiau’r enfys’ Stonewall Cymru ar gyfer Varsity Cymru 2015. O flaen miloedd o gefnogwyr, gwisgodd cystadleuwyr griau lliwiau’r enfys i brotestio yn erbyn ‘miri' homoffobig o fewn chwaraeon ac oddi ar y cae.

Dangosa ymchwil Stonewall Cymru gyda Sport Wales bod un ymhob tri person LHDT wedi cael ei hynysu o chwaraeon oherwydd ei rhywioldeb, a dwedodd tri ymhob pedwar ymholwyr eu bod wedi clywed mirir ‘homoffobig’. Dywedodd Luke Young, cyn-lywydd UMPA a Rheolwr presennol ymgyrchoedd Stonewall “Trwy wisgo criau lliwiau’r enfys yn Varsity Cymru, mae myfyrwyr Caerdydd ac Abertawe’n cyfleu neges gryf na ddylai rhywioldeb neu rhyw chwaraewr fod yn rwystr i gymryd rgab a dylai chwaraeon fod yn agored i bawb.”

Cafodd yr ymgyrch lwyddiant mawr ar y diwrnod, gyda Trydar yn llawn hashtags #criaulliwiaurenfys a timau’n postio lluniau o’u criau amryliw.Mae’r undeb wedi’i anrhydeddu i gefnogi ymgyrch Stonewall a fel dywedodd Charlotte Peters ‘Rydyn ni eisiau awyrgylch chwaraeon sy’n agored i bawb. Rydym yn falch i gyfrannu.’

FREE Swansea University ‘Keep Cup’ with hot drink to the first 100 respondents! / Hoffech chi gydnabyddiaeth swyddogol am eich cyfranogiad at ddatblygiad atebion cynaliadwy?

Student Award Survey

FREE Swansea University ‘Keep Cup’ with hot drink to the first 100 respondents!

 

Would you like official recognition for your contribution to developing sustainable solutions?

We think it would be a good idea to establish a new student Award to recognise students who, via their course, contribute their own thinking to the issues of (non-)sustainability.  What do you think?

 

Such an Award would

  • Celebrate your learning and interest in sustainability
  • Evidence your course’s contribution to sustainability
  • Serve as official recognition for your time and effort
  • Add to your CV
  • Further enhance your employability skills

 

Education for Sustainability

  • Introduces critical-thinking
  • Develops skills to challenge non-sustainable norms
  • Advances understanding of the relevance of your discipline to sustainability
  • Increases your ability to make positive changes for the future
  • Enhances confidence to question and seek new alternatives for a sustainable future  

 

Future Prospects

 

The proposed new student Award would be the first step towards the ultimate aspiration to create a self-sustaining student programme which would facilitate  the development of understanding, skills and tools  among those students wishing to accelerate their contributions to building a more sustainable future.

 

Your responses will be anonymised

 

The individual responses you give, and your student and course identity, will be known only to the research team and used only for the purposes of this research (including letting you know if you are one of the lucky 100 recipients of a FREE ‘Keep-Cup’ and hot drink).  Any published results will be in summary. Should you wish to identify yourself to offer help, or so that we can provide the results to you, you may do so at the end of the survey.

 

We very much look forward to hearing your views and thank you in advance for your time and thoughts.

Byddai’r Wobr Myfyriwr newydd yn gam cyntaf tuag at yr uchelgais o greu rhaglen hunan-gynhaliol fydd yn hwyluso datblygiad dealltwriaeth, sgiliau ac offer ymysg y myfyrwyr rhieni sydd am gynyddu eu cyfranogiad i adeiladu dyfodol cynaliadwy.

Our New Flagship Café-Bar Needs Naming- Win a £100 Dining Card!

Mon 23 Feb 2015

Your chance to make a mark on the history of Swansea University

bar bay campus

Flagship café-bar name needed – win a £100 Dining Card

This is your chance to make a mark on the history of Swansea University.

With just over six months to go until the opening of the Bay Campus, our new flagship café-bar is in need of a name.

Submit your suggestions by Friday 6th March and if your suggestion is accepted then you will be rewarded with a £100 Dining Card that can be used in any Campus Catering outlets.

However - this prize pales into insignificance alongside the chance to be the person that gave the bar its name. Generations of students will marvel at your genius.

To submit your suggestion visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QWVD5T6.

The café-bar will be the most exciting feature of the retail street at the Bay Campus. Contemporary coffee shop and general chill out area by day, relaxed and funky bar by night, it needs a name that will reflect its status as the place to be.

The café-bar will be styled with beach and watersports influences, with a retro touch and echoes of a bygone era. Customised furniture and decorations will ensure that it is an oasis of calm amid a busy and modern campus. 

It’s one of several outlets at the Bay Campus, which will include a main food court with multiple pods serving a mix of traditional foods, street food and internationally influenced cuisine. There will also be catering outlets in the College of Engineering, School of Management, Library and Great Hall. Keep an eye out too for new menus and developments on the Singleton Park Campus.

Themes to consider are:

  • Welsh heritage and identity
  • Beach and waterfront  
  • Industrial heritage of the site and Swansea University
  • Science and innovation
  • Natural environment and Crymlyn Burrows SSSI

Also don’t forget that:

  • The name must not infringe any existing trademarks or copyrights
  • The name must be acceptable across the University’s multi-cultural student community
  • The name must not be inappropriate or offensive!

If you have any queries please email to m.e.ocarroll@swansea.ac.uk

Building 'castles' for the future students of Swansea University

Wed 26 Nov 2014

Swansea University has unveiled the names of its new Bay Campus students residences

Swansea University has today unveiled the names which will be given to the new students residences following the opening of the Bay Campus in September 2015.

Whilst the development programme heralds a new era for Swansea University,  the recognition of the role that Welsh heritage and culture has on attracting both local and international students has been firmly acknowledged. Through consultation with students, staff and St Modwen it was agreed that the student residence buildings should be named after our famous Welsh Castles and the Princes and Princesses of Wales. There are over 400 castles in Wales with many castles such as Dinefwr and Carreg Cennen dating as far back as the 12th Century, built to last by Lord Rhys, one of Wales’ first Princes of Wales.

Ceinwen Cloney, the President of Swansea University’s Student’s Union said:

“Honouring Welsh history through the naming of the residences is a great way to inspire new students to learn more about the rich culture of Wales’’

The residences are being built around stunning courtyards which connect each of the buildings providing a true community feel. The architecture of the student residences also reflects the ‘Castle’ themes with detail such as archways and balconies. Another similarity is that historically Castles were built at strategic locations next to the sea, students living at the Bay Campus will be able to enjoy sweeping views and access the beach from their own doorstep…

Ceinwen added: “Having seen the plans and the current building works going on, students are set to have an amazing space to live at the new Bay Campus.”

Students will be allowed to apply for accommodation at the Bay and Park Campus from January 2015.

The names of the thirteen residences are: Cadell, Cardigan, Carreg Cennen, Dinefwr, Dolbarden, Dryslwyn, Emlyn, Ewloe, Pen y Bryn, Gruffydd, Gwenllian, Llywelyn Fawr and Manorbier.
