Yeah, there are more interesting things to do than vote. There are a lot of Loud Noises in the SU building, too many candidates and too many manifestos. And maybe you just don’t think it’s relevant to you. So why bother?
Well, let’s say you did vote for the changes you’d like to see. And then the Officers who’d promised them made them happen. What would that look like?
Just this year, we saw the introduction of several great initiatives on campus in the term of the Sabbatical Officers, Part-Time Officers and Liberation Officers. Here are just a few highlights…
1. Rent guarantor scheme
Many private landlords require a third party to act as a guarantor for rent payments before they’ll agree to rent to a student.
Moving to London can be tough enough for many students, even without the added stress of finding somewhere affordable to live. The LSE will now be able to act as a rent guarantor for students. Learn more about how you can make use of this service here.
2. Exam feedback
Exams can be pretty stressful. Not knowing where you went wrong is…well, an even worse feeling.
This year, Tom, the Education Officer secured individualised exam feedback for 1st and 2nd year undergraduates in the International Relations department. Hopefully, other departments will be able to follow suit soon.
3. AU For All Campaign
If you’re skilled enough to represent your university at a sport, you should be able to do so. AU For All aims to create a more inclusive Athletics Union through participating in campaigns such as the #rainbowlaces project, which seeks to tackle homophobia in sport.
4. Microwaves on campus
Don’t care about rent, sport, or exams? Well, how about food?
This year, there are two more microwaves on campus. Arguably, that’s still not quite enough for the number of students, but at least now you’ll be able to save money by bringing your own food to uni.
5. Wellbeing Project
Sometimes you just need a moment to breathe, take a break from the books, and chill out. And you know what? That’s perfectly okay.
For the first time, there was a full week of activities on campus around health and wellness, including free massages, cheap smoothies, meditation, and even rock climbing!
6. Women’s Network
Regardless of your sex, you can always channel your inner Leslie Knope.
The LSESU Women’s Network was launched this year to empower LSE women in all aspects of life. Events so far have included panels on women in business, law, politics, and the third sector.
