    Event and ice-breakers for non-halls students

    Current
      I’ve recently learned that around 70 percent of BCU students do not live in halls. This can be quite daunting when thinking about how to make friends when considering the advantage students in halls have with having flatmates etc. It would be great if during the relevant welcome weeks there were specific events just for those who are not living in halls. These events would include icebreakers and other games to make it really easy to get to know each other and take the pressure off, it would also provide an opportunity to meet people outside your course that doesn’t require joining a society.

    8:26pm on 11 Oct 22 They may not stay in the halls in order to get to know more friends, so my idea is to design a board game about making friends to understand the interests, life and major of themselves and others.

    How it works

    Submit

    Submit an idea... anything that could improve student experience is a valid idea.

     

    • You must be a BCU student, logged in using your student account
    • You can choose to submit anonymously, so your name won’t be displayed.
      BCUSU staff will still be able to see your name and email to contact you

     

    Discuss

    You will be contacted by one of the Activities and Representation Coordinators to discuss your idea and make any relevant changes to it.

    Vote

    Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

    It will be live until:

    • it reaches 25 positive votes
      or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
    • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
    • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions

     

    Action

    If your idea reaches the 25-positive vote threshold:

     

    • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
    • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take
    • the comments section will be updated with the agreed upon actions

    If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 25 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
