Welcome to your brand new student magazine, ‘Radar’, which has evolved from a student-led rebrand of our former magazine ‘Reform’. I would like to tirelessly thank all those involved with putting this edition together, I hope you are pleased with the final product! Student media is exactly what it says it is – led by, run for and relevant to students. It is all about reclaiming communication channels to make them entirely relevant to students. Making student media a success is a huge priority for me this year so if you would like to get involved with future publications of this magazine or other outlets, such as our radio station, please contact me at any time! This edition is focused on Freshers Week and is aimed at welcoming all of our new students to RGU with lots of useful information, hints and tips! The magazine will be available on a monthly basis so keep a look out for the new editions as they are released! I wish you a fantastic Freshers Week, make the most of it! I hope you have a very successful and enjoyable year ahead. Best Wishes, Paul Greene President (Communications & Democracy)

Who are these people and what do they do? Meet Paul, Steve & Paddy, your elected Presidents. This means that they take a year out of their studies in order to work full time representing you on many different levels throughout the University. They are involved with lots of campaigns and initiatives to make sure that students at RGU are happy with all areas of University life. The team of Presidents also works closely with our Vice Presidents who, instead of being paid to work full-time, give up their own time and volunteer with us, helping to ensure that the various needs of RGU students are represented to the Union and the University. If you have an issue that falls under their remit, get in touch with the relevant VP and they will work with both the Union and the University to help you resolve it as quickly as possible.

how did they get their jobs? In order to become a President or Vice President at RGU, you must go through the Union’s Student Election process. Our main Election takes place in March, and involves battling it out against different candidates, encouraging fellow students to vote for you. A By-election happens in November in order to fill any remaining vacant positions. Our elections are extremely popular, with around 1,500 students taking the time to vote each year. If you are interested in running for a position in our next set of Elections speak to Paul, our President of Communications & Democracy.

SISTER BLISS / FAITHLESS DJ SEt tiger tiger sunday 22nd sept

As DJ, producer, writer and founding member of Faithless, one of the most unique and influential dance acts in the world, Sister Bliss was the creative force behind international club smashes such as ‘God is a DJ’, ‘We Come One’, and of course, ‘Insomnia’. She has become one of Britain’s most popular figures in the Electronica scene, as well as an in demand producer, having recently worked with Example on his album ‘Playing In The Shadows’. This summer she took the Faithless name to sell out crowds right across the globe – from the world famous Ushuaia club in Ibiza, to hometown shows at Brixton Academy, and all the way to Miami for Ultra Festival. “It’s an exciting time at the moment” she explained during an interview to promote her DJ sets, “I’m DJing all over the globe playing loads of new music that I’ve been working on.”

and guitar, dance music was not Sister Bliss’ first love, but it is clear to see that after 20 years of touring with Faithless, it is where her passion lies; “I’ve never said that dance music is perfect” she tells Jules Evans from the Philosophy for Life blog, “But there can be a perfection in it, in the moment, when the DJ drops that tune, and the crowd all feel it at the same time, and you get that connection. It’s very special.” We’re delighted to welcome Sister Bliss to Aberdeen for RGU Freshers Week, this promises to be a very special night that you won’t want to miss! Quotes taken from the following interviews: http://on.fb.me/1fvz2Ff and http://bit.ly/17E2ycr

So, what should we expect from a Sister Bliss / Faithless DJ Set? “Anything with a great groove, and emotion” is the answer, “I play the best in house music, from tech house to progressive with an electro edge!” A classically trained pianist, and accomplished on many other instruments including the violin, saxophone

Climb Kilimanjaro 4 Kids This summer, 21 students set off to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the largest mountain in Africa and the world’s largest free standing mountain at a towering 19,341 ft above sea level. The challenge was in aid of Childreach International with students managing to raise over £58,000. The students were fortunate to be able to visit a Childreach supported school and met the local children in the Moshi region of Tanzania prior to the ascent up the mountain in order to see where their fundraising goes. The climb which led students from the Machame Gate towards the Uhuru Peak was a gruelling four days accent and two days descent of long trekking.

torcher parade In April RGU:RAG once again took part in the

Aberdeen Student Charities Campaign annual Torcher Parade. RAG went Hawaiian this year to bring a bit of sunshine to Aberdeen. Volunteers spent the day hammering, gluing and painting to get their float complete. The evening parade went along Schoolhill, down to Queens cross, along Albyn place and then Union street. The music and atmosphere was exciting for our volunteers performing on the float and our collectors on the ground raising money from the crowds out to watch.

rag’s 10th birthday celebration This May not only brought our annual cheque

presentation to this years charities but also saw the celebration of our 10th year of existence. We celebrated in style, and held a fabulous RAG Birthday Party at the Rox Hotel, and were pleased to welcome past, current and future Raggies, charities and supporters to join us in our celebrations. A number of our charities were on hand to receive novelty cheques and celebrate the current end of year total which stood at £62874 for local, national and international charities.

Hello campers!

RGdU ent Stu

A very warm welcome to you! Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Steve and I am your Welfary Godmother! I remember exactly what it was like to be a Fresher; downing my first Messy Bomb in the Union, cutting some wild shapes on the dancefloor, then gulping down a kebab and garlic sauce at the end of the night - it was one of the best years of my life! Now that I am an older, wiser, and more attractive RGUer, with a wealth of student life experience, I can now impart my wisdom to you, my Fresher Babies...

home away from home

• Don’t forget about your old friends. Remember to Skype or send the odd Snapchat to keep in touch! • Personalise your room! A few soft toy pandas, a lava lamp and maybe some incense sticks. Get a picture collage on your walls with a mixture of old friends and new! (Using blue tac obviously, don’t upset those RA’s!) • Flatmates. You’ll live with them for the next year, so make an effort to get on. Organise a flat social every week such as a ‘Lads DreamGirls Movie night’ or a ‘Girls Call of Duty Tournament’. • Don’t go home every weekend. Not only will you miss some epic nights out, but you will probably spend loads of cash on travel (You could have bought a new outfit, a few pints in the Union, or gone out for dinner with that money!)

EFFECTIVE SPENDING

• An NUS Extra card and your Student Card will get you discounts and freebies! Make sure you don’t miss out on that free McFlurry or cheeseburger at McDonalds! Even if you don’t eat it, you can give it to your pal! (I give mine to a homeless guy). • Before you buy contents insurance, check the ‘contents away from home’ section of your parents’ household policy. This might already cover you, or you might be able to get it extended at a small cost. • Brand shiny new books are nice, but most you will probably only use them for three months! Save some cash and buy second-hand books, which are available from Edgeworn, the Union’s bookshop! • The Union’s drinks are VERY reasonablly priced! Make sure you start your night there.

NIGHT OUT

• Stay Safe! • Drink Responsibly. Don’t go mixing wine, beer and spirits - that is not a cocktail your stomach can handle. More importantly, don’t just drink for the sake of drinking. You won’t make it to the end of the night and you will spend more money! • Don’t chance Fake ID. Most doormen will see people trying to get away with this every day. They will confiscate the ID and the Police will get involved. • Don’t bring too much money out with you. You will end up buying another, and another, and another. Before you know it, you will have spent £60 in your first club. Set a budget for your night and keep some money aside for getting home and for Chips Cheese and Gravy! • Bring a Light Jacket. We live in Aberdeen, so don’t think you can just rely on your ‘booze blanket’. • Substance Abuse. Don’t do drugs. Enough said. • Tomatoes - the golden chalice of the hangover cure! Eat one before you go to bed, and BOOM, no hangover! This may be a myth, but it works for me. Supposedly they contain a toxin that keeps you well hydrated.


SEX

• Wear a condom lads! Don’t be that guy. • If someone is far too drunk, do the responsible thing and get them home safely. Don’t take this as an opportunity to think you can get lucky - sex should always be consensual. • Don’t try to be a Pornstar with someone you’ve just met! There is no need to smartphone your antics with pics, videos and sexy snapchats, your sexcapades will probably end up online. • Condoms and Lube are free from me! There’s no need to pay! Give me a call, drop me a Facebook PM or Email (PresEW@rguunion.co.uk) and I will get some sent to you in a discreet wee package!

the actual university bit

• Start coursework early. Don’t put yourself through that frantic night-before stress. • Facebook your Tutor Groups! This will be handy for, “What did you put for question 4?”, “Did anyone find a good article for this?”, as well as a good team-builder, “Class night out at the Union tonight?” • Befriend your lecturers! If they like your class, they might give you more exam hints. • Use the library. It not only has a bonnie view, but it’s full of books, books that will teach you things! • Never hesitate to ask for help. If there is something you do not understand, send your lecturers or tutors an email - it’s what they are they for. • Remember why you are here at RGU. You want a degree. You want a fancy job, a nice car, and big bucks? Uni is fun, but you will need to put in the hours working.

social

• Don’t stay in cliques, this isn’t Mean Girls, and you’re not Regina George. • Try making a new friend every day! • Flat visits. Go chappint on the neighbours’ door and introduce yourself. I did this in my first few days as a Fresher and by the end of the week I knew every person in my halls!

get involved

• Join anything and everything! Clubs and Societies will not only give the hobbies section in your CV a boost, but you will learn new skills, meet lots of new people and you will no doubt have lots of fun too.

think positive

• There may be times where you stress, and it may all feel too much. Homesickness, coursework deadlines, looming exams, financial struggle, always remember that you are NEVER alone! Myself and RGU:Union are here to support you. Come and speak to us, even if we can’t help you out directly, we will almost definitely know who can.

healthy body, healthy mind

• Keeping physically active encourages a healthy positive attitude! Regular workouts, sporting activities (and sex!) are all exercise. • Join a Sports Club. We have loads to choose from, and you don’t need any previous experience to join. I’m thinking about joining the Rugby team... #ComeAtMeBoys. • If you are a really keen bean then you can opt to walk or cycle to Garthdee rather than taking the bus. You will also save money which is always handy!

have a sense of humour!

• RGUers know how to have a good time! Never take things too seriously, it’s important that you enjoy your time here.
