An event organised by the Hive Scholars and the Students’ Union on the 24th of April was judged a success by all involved.
Sussex Researchers came into the Hive to get one-to-one advice from the Students’ Union representatives. For the Student’s Union this provided an opportunity for more involvement with postgraduate researcher students and it was happy to provide advice and demonstrate how it can assist the research community in Sussex. The event was appreciated by researchers who admitted that they were not aware of the Students’ Union services and the support it can provide to researchers.
The event was followed by a social gathering in Falmer Bar where researchers continued the discussion with the Students’ Union President, David Cichon, and got the opportunity to get to know each other over some drinks, courtesy of the Research Hive and Students’ Union.
The possibility of future similar events and further collaboration with the Students’ Union is being discussed. Would you like to see the Students’ Union more involved with the Sussex research community? Would you like more organised social events? Please comment on this posting with your suggestions.
