England vs Slovakia Euros – Today!
Tonight (Monday) at 8pm we’ll be showing the England vs Slovakia game in the TV Room for anyone who wants to come along – it should be a good one!

Zorb Football Cancelled
Unfortunately the Zorb Football event due to be held tomorrow (Tuesday) with Grizedale and Fylde college has been cancelled due to lack of facilities staff. Sorry to anyone who was hoping to attend!

College Feedback
As some of you may remember, last term we ran a feedback campaign which proved incredibly useful in helping us as a JCR ensure that we’re constantly on our toes and doing the best for YOU! Here are five key things we learned and put into practice:

1) You said “I would like more themed socials and bar crawls”
so we have introduced a beach themed, on campus, bar crawl in term 3!
2) You said “We want more chilled events in Trev or during the day
so we have created our very own Euros football events and a games and food night in held the TV room.
3) You said “We want the JCR to represent the college and bring us what we want
so we are working on introducing a termly feedback report to get your voice heard.
4) You said “We would like more help dealing with exam pressures
So we hosted 10@10, a weekly de-stress event, and provided exam tips and information in Bev’s Hills.
5) You said “We want more support for sports teams
so we have used the budget to the max, investing in new Darts board, a pool cue, footballs and bibs along with increased promotion and photos of games.

Please please please help improve the college by giving us your feedback on this term by filling in the form HERE.

Thank you to everyone who has read Bev’s Hills and a massive goodbye to anyone graduating this summer – we will miss you! For everyone else, see you next year!
