21 things we did this year

As we make our way to the end of the final term we thought we'd take a look back at all the amazing things that happened this year...

1. Our Full-time Officer team smashed it!

They've worked tirlessly on all of their campaigns, and they even won NUS Wales Officer Team of the Year for their efforts!

2. Our Election was HUGE

We had 19,189 votes for 49 candidates!

3. #StudyAid helped you through your exams

We organised more events than ever before, and gave away hot drinks and biscuits to over 5,000 students during January exams alone!

4. We ensured a 24-hour gap between all exams

Speaking of exams, your Education Officer, lobbied the Uni for a longer gap between exams, so you won't have two exams in one day again!

5. We took your feedback on board

We got over 1,000 responses on our Speak Week survey, thanks to our Part-time Officers and Reps volunteering 200 hours of their time! We then listened to your feedback and acted on it.

6. We gave you over 30 Freshers events

Our Freshers Fortnight was HUGE. We had over 20,000 attendees over the fortnight and gave away a whole load of freebies!

7. We LOVE equality and diversity

We held campaigns for LGBT+ History Month, Black History Month, 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, LGBT+ Mental Health Awareness Week, Hate Crime Awareness Week and more!

8. The Advice Centre kept on giving you the support you need...

We assisted students with a range of cases including academic, housing, financial, consumer and personal, and saved students a massive £55,366.86 in unfair charges, refunds, deposits and written off debts.

9. The Education Zone represented you

Our 350+ college and course reps asked you what you wanted to change, and they told the Uni. We also held an amazing Rep Conference to thank them all for their hard work this year!

10. We took over 52°

The student bar on Bay Campus is now run by us, which means cheaper prices, better deals and more events for students.

11. We put a ban on plastic straws

We did our bit for the planet and took all single-use plastic straws from our venues because of their massive environmental impact.

12. Charity was at the heart of what we do

Between out sports clubs, societies and campaigns, we raised over £15,000 for various charities this year!

You loved it so much that we brought it back, bigger and better than before!

14. We took over the Post Office

The Singleton Campus Post Office is now run in Costcutter.

16. Our sports clubs and societies grew

We now have over 130 societies, and 56 sports clubs, giving you the chance to meet friends, learn new skills and make amazing memories.

17. We're Best Bar None

Our bars all won Gold Best Bar None awards, which means you can enjoy a night at our venues knowing that we're doing our best to keep you safe!

18. We helped you become employable

We offered 18 work placements for students to join our team for the week and learn all about what we do!

19. We hosted Varsity

We put on a huuuge sports day for over 9,000 and smashed it! (Let's not talk about the result...)

20. We care about your mental health

Our Welfare Officer has secured a whopping £9,600 in funding for suicide prevention training

21. We gave you a voice

Most importantly, we gave you a platform to express your issues and opinions, and change the way the Union and Uni works because of our Students Forums. Students put forward 15 motions to be voted on by other students, and 12 passed.
