WHAT THE EXEC?! You voted, now meet the 16 students who will be helping run your Students’ Union! Thank you to all of you who voted in the Part Time Officer Exec elections - meet your brand new exec committee. (Right) Part Time Exec officers are just that they are BU students that now work with SUBU alongside their studies. They have weekly meetings with the four full time officers (Louise, Murray, Ruby and Sophie) to decide upon the direction that SUBU should take, what campaigns we should run, or what student issues need attention. They are the eyes and ears of the 18,000 of you guys we have here at BU. Its SUBU’s job to make sure you are all represented and the Part Time Exec Officers will be working to make sure we do so! The roles reflect the different groups of students we have here at BU, so that everyone’s views and opinions are represented. This year, that includes two brand new roles.

President Louise Bryant explains why: “We’ve added new roles this year after recognising the struggles of some key under-represented groups. Our two new roles – Student Parents Officer and HSc Officer – were created to ensure that we hear from these students and provide them with as great a University experience as the rest of the student body.” Expect to hear lots from them soon and get in touch if you have any suggestions, issues, or ideas!

NOV 2012 Water is something we all take for granted, and it’s likely that when you buy a bottle from the Student Shop, you don’t think about the brand. So next time you browse the refrigerator, look at the bottom shelf and pick up One Water. One Water is priced 15p lower than Evian and Volvic, (which deliberately cost a little more to subsidise One Water.) 100% of their profits go towards funding water wells in Africa, so that means that every time you spend 45p on what you just think is an ordinary bottle of water, you’re helping someone in the developing world get access to fresh, clean water. Good deed of the day = accomplished!

VO L U NT E E R ABR O AD SUBU Volunteering thehub Goes Global is back! It’s a 10 day overseas volunteer trip to Bulgaria in July 2013.

Cost is £995 not including flights and uk airport transfers. Previous volunteer, Olivia Easton said: “It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. It was a challenge, but I learnt a lot about myself and met some incredible people.” www.the-hub.org.uk @ thehub@  bournemouth.ac.uk
