Alright Guvna!?

Hey, to those of you who don’t know me I’m your student Governor here at what is now BG University! I’ve held the role since the start of the last academic year, which has been a really exciting time to have been elected into this position. There is a forward momentum. My role is to represent the student body at the University Council meetings, whereby some of the decisions that really affect where BG is heading are taken.

The University title celebration service in January marked the transition from a University college to a University. There has been and will continue to be better facilities created over the next few years. Cross trend house has provided top quality accommodation and now in progress the redevelopment of Wickham and Nelson halls. To top this off there will be a new dining facility and Constance Stewart Halls will be redeveloped. The SU building has been completely refurbished and is now a great place for students to hang out and study. The number of societies available to join are increasing and with great support. Also with the appointment of the new Vice Chancellor Reverend Professor Peter Neil and a new Chair of the University Council there is a real ‘newness’ about BG.

So in response, as students at a University our responsibilities remain the same, to study, to learn, to have community with each other; hopefully long after our study period. However, what are our expectations in the new academic year, what opportunities do we want to be made possible through the University. From Volunteering to organised events, discussion to performance, entrepreneurship to playful placements, what things do we want, as a student body, to make our time at BG the fullest it can be? There are great facilities on campus such as the gym, the Venue, a careers advice service, the new library with seminar rooms and much more. Some of us will have lots of time and others just a little but there should always be time cut out to do what we love. My vision for this year is to communicate to those on the University Council what student’s expectations and passions are as we move forward together.

My secondary school motto was ‘The best way to predict the future is to create it’. Let’s take hold of that spirit and make our time here great.

Get in touch.

James Turner

Student Governor
