Good Morning Furness!
Only 19 days until the Easter (woo yeah SPRING BREAK yeh!) so i’ll stop boring you and begin!
What do you get when you cross the Atlantic with the Titanic
About half way across.
I’d like to start by thanking absolutely everyone who came down to play and support Furness. An absolutely fantastic weekend and a really hard-fought contest with the lead changing between both colleges through out! Would be impossible to name everyone who played (well not impossible) but a huge congratulations to the netball teams who won both their games, and the footy A-Team; Ben Hughes, sports sec, making a second-half debut and netting two.
A full Patriot’s round up will be in your college magazine, Week 10 Furst; and a video coming soon!
Also congratulations to Cartmel for winning and not cheating…
Vote Vote Vote!
Great turn-outs at both FTO and the Furness Hustings. The voting for all of the elections open on Tuesday!
You can read each candidates manifesto here:
I can’t urge enough how important it is to vote, the people elected make decisions on things that count – Freshers Week, Extrav, Save the Arts! Make sure Furness is properly represented and vote!
Emergency General Meeting – Saving the Arts
Following the announcement that the Music degree scheme would cease to exist at the end of this academic year, many have raised concerns regarding the future of other similar degree schemes and the arts at Lancaster University. An Emergency General Meeting has been called to educate students about these issues, rally support for change and to challenge the University on their strategy – right at a time when the University strategy is being reviewed.
Please join us and bring your friends along to our Emergency General Meeting on Tuesday 5th March in George Fox Lecture Theatre 1 from 6pm to have your voice heard.
