Centenary of the Students Union

SU 1923-24

Vice-Chancellor David Greenaway reflects on the growing role of the SU at the University over the past 100 years as we celebrate the SU’s centenary this year. This picture is the 1923-24 committee – look how they’ve changed!  Did you know Karni, the SU’s student-run charity, raised over £1.5 million last year? For more like this, see the full blog post.

Did the trauma of World War One lead to great creativity?

Following the theme of centenaries, Dr Victoria Tischler from the School of Medicine explores what trauma can do to the mind for BBC online’s coverage marking the Centenary of World War One. An eye-opening study co-presented by baroness Shirley Williams. See the study in action from the blog post.

The Student and the House


Student blogger Ollie gives an insight into living with friends for the first time at University on the Student Life blog. Highlights include bins, washing up and cleaning! Take his advice and do your bit! It’s not all doom and gloom (and cleaning) though – there are plenty of positives to living with friends too! Independence, seeing your best friends whenever you want…oh, and veg baseball.
