The 2017 SUBU Rep Celebration took place last Friday at The Old Fire Station to recognise the hard work done by Student Reps over the year.
The SUBU Outstanding Rep of the Year Award went to Georgina Markey who completed the ‘Collect It, Represent It, Share It’ Rep cycle for getting student feedback while showing the most development both personally and as a Student Rep this year.
Each faculty nominated their own Reps of the Year and Outstanding Rep of the Year for their hard work and dedication, and the SimOn Award went to BSc (Hons) Psychology for the second year, as the course deemed to have used SimOn - SUBU’s online tool for gathering student feedback - most effectively and with the most impact over the last year.
Kerry Dean, SUBU Representation Manager said: “The Celebration is a fantastic way to congratulate and say thank you to the Student Reps that have worked so hard this year. It’s a great opportunity to recognise individual achievements but also to say a big collective ‘well done’ to all the Reps. The Rep system at BU is the success that is it because of the amazing Student Reps.”
Jamie Swanson, SUBU’s Vice President for Education echoed Kerry’s comments, adding: “All of our reps have done fantastic work across the year to make a real difference to the student experience at BU – and it was great to celebrate all of their achievements!”
