NUI Galway Students’ Union has today launched plans to help students connect with each other in what will be “a less than usual” academic year due to Covid-19.
Each option allows students to get involved with the work of the Students’ Union during the year whilst also having a chance to make friends on campus and build connections all the time adhering to social distancing.
The plans all include online and socially distant offline options.
The plans include a monthly Charity Challenge, an Event Crew that will organise events during term to give students a chance to meet up on or off line, elected Class Representatives, a Welfare Crew –to organise campaigns on student issues such as sexual health, mental health and equality issues and Elections with 5 vacant Officer positions to be filled.
NUI Galway Students’ Union President Pádraic Toomey has been telling Midwest News more about the new efforts for an unprecedented academic year.
