Farewell from the 2016-17 Full-time Officers

Officer team 16/17

Dear Sussex, BSMS and IDS students, 

As our term as a full-time officer team is coming to an end, we have reflected on the work we have done together.
 
This year we have had a new vice-chancellor and we are working with him to build better relationships between the Students’ Union and the University.  We have been part of planning the new Students’ Union building but also continuing to lobby the University to ensure campus development meets students’ needs. 
 
The cost of being a student continues to rise but we’ve been part of making sure that students in hardship are supported. This year, among other things, we have had successes in our campaign against the Teaching Excellence Framework and higher tuition fees through the National Student Survey Boycott and we, as full-time officers and as people, will always champion free and liberated education. 
 
None of the things we have done could have happened without Sussex, BSMS and IDS students but also the wonderful and very talented Students’ Union staff we have been working with this year. Thank you all for that, you are great. 
 
The world looks scary and so it is more important than ever that we work together to make sure the world is a little less scary and a little friendlier and fairer. Remember that you may be a single drop but you all contribute to filling the bucket of change. 
 
What we have done this year as full-time officers has not always been popular but we are proud to have been part of the Students’ Union and to have put our hearts and energy into improving student life at Sussex, BSMS and IDS, it’s been incredible, varied, challenging and such a fun year.
 
Full-time officer love, 
 
Sarah, Rose, Annie, Adèle, Savannah and Grainne
