It’s a new year, and we’re ready to work on the ideas you suggested. If you haven’t seen the results, they are available to view here. We will be working through the ideas in order, starting with the most popular. However, some ideas will take less time to put into action, which is why you may some ideas lower on the list fully implemented earlier. Each time we have something to update you on, such as an idea being implemented or an explanation as to why this is not yet possible, we will let you know on social media (follow @StrodeSCSA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and in more detail on these weekly updates.
So, what have we done so far?
Better WiFi (where you can access apps without needing a VPN) was the most popular idea, so we are looking into when we can organise a meeting with those who can change this. We will try our hardest to get the best possible solution for students ensuring that you can easily access the apps you need without infuriating limitations.
We know packaging is an issue – not only were packaging related issues the second and third most popular ideas, but, regardless, we need to do something to tackle the environmental crisis and plastic problem. We’re working on it! I have met with the head of catering, and will be presenting to the Sustainability Group at the next meeting.
Food was also an important topic – many of the suggestions were relating to the offering on campus. The meeting with the head of catering was very useful – look out for trials of some of the suggestions. We will also be having a further meeting after half-term. Sweet potato fries are now available in the refectory at the main servery every day! If you voted for this idea, show that you want them to stay by getting some today (I can personally tell you they are good!).
Stay tuned for updates on all the ideas we are working on right now, and more information about the others!
