University: What Bath Students’ Union Has Achieved This Year

by on May.21, 2009, under University

busu-logoI’m bogged down with revision for my last three exams at the moment, but saw this video posted by Bath Students’ Union President – Alex Nicholson-Evans and thought I had to share it

It’s a brief video showing some of the things BUSU has achieved in the last year – from Freshers’ Week to the success of societies to the various campaigns that have run throughout the year and of course – improvements to the buses.

At the end of the video, there is even some good news on their latest project – the new Student Centre.

This Post is for Thursday 14th May, 2009

At the start of this week a new battle started around Bath – the Battle of the Buses between First and Wessex Connect.

This Monday Wessex Connect launched its rival service to the 18/418 – the U18. Concentrating on the Oldfield Park to University route, it has been highly campaigned for from the Students’ Union as an improvement to the bus service from First – a topic of conversation which seems to frequently come up.

The U18 was announced at the same time that Wessex Connect announced that they would start providing an alternative to the cancelled 20a/c service in Bath. As well as providing more buses and lower fares than first, they also announced that they would be donating 1p per ticket sold to a charity, chosen by students.

Photo: The Automatic Stage Setup

This post is for Tuesday 12th May

This weeks photo is a slightly different style photo. It was taken on my phone (I forgot my digital camera this day – doh!) and is of the stage set up ready for The Automatic’s performance in Elements at the University of Bath

The thing I found most amazing was how much we fitted on such a small stage.

To say our standard set up in Elements isn’t that large would be an understatement. To fit The Automatic on their, with all their equipment, plus that of support acts etc. was nothing short of a miracle.

Although a big (ish) named band, they did struggle to get a crowd. Their performance at the University of Bath was part of the uLive tour which goes round a number of Students’ Unions in the UK. Apparently we weren’t even the smallest venue on the tour.

I believe only a few over 100 people came to see them in the end, which was surprising considering they’d had a number of hits – tickets weren’t even too expensive at only about £12. I think it perhaps came down to timing, with a lot of people starting to become busy with coursework at that time in the semester. That said, live music seems to struggle at the University of Bath in general.
