SUBU is still reeling from the best arrivals period ever as we welcomed over 4000 of you to BU – and not forgetting all our returning students who got stuck in and got 2012/13 off to an electric start. In an exciting first, hundreds of you used #buarrivals to tweet and instagram your arrivals journey. From packed car-boots to party shenanigans, you showed us the arrivals experience through your eyes – and what a journey. Keep adding your pics. It’s your hashtag, your community. Congratulations to Jonathan Heard who won a digital Polaroid camera for his mash-up of arrivals scenes. Over the two weeks SUBU were really impressed with your open-minded, get stuck in attitude and energy around campus – long may it continue! From our yellow shirted welcome crew, to all of you wristband wearing explorers, thank W W W.SUBU.ORG.UK f SUBU BOURNEMOUTH you for the biggest and best arrivals ever! So term 1 is well underway, and we hope you are enjoying the new BU courtyard (semi-circle to the 2nd years and above!) new facilities at sportBU, and the brand new bus cards – if you are not, let us know. As well as bringing you Nerve media, Clubs and Societies, Rag, Volunteering, Advice and Student Reps, we work to make sure you have the best BU experience possible. SUBU are separate to BU, and whilst most of the time we work positively and collaboratively with them, we also work to represent all our students nationally and locally on the issues that affect you.

On the night I had so much fun, laughing, watching and listening to people’s reactions, finding it hard to believe what they had stumbled upon, ‘Am I actually playing pong on the side of a building?!’.Even the sober ones were amazed!” Kelly Griffiths: 1st Year Multi Media Journalism.
