Run by students, for students. Here’s some of our achievements this year!

1,106 posts 1,092 followers 1,043 followers Over 200,625 views on TridentMedia.org

It’s been amazing watching so many people pick up copies of the magazine across campus, and I look forward to you reading this third issue! It’s mad how far into the year we are: We’ve already had Easter, the SU elections, and, by the time you’re reading this, The Avengers! We’ve also seen the SU Awards taking place since our last issue, and I’d like to congratulate each winner there too, especially our very own Robert Wheatley for his two awards! (You have to leave this bit in, Rob! … yes and this too!) Matt Dowse Chairman of Trident Media Finally, I want to wish everyone good luck in their exams and assignments over the coming weeks, and we hope our cocktail recommendations later on will help you celebrate! Enjoy! xxx

Robert Wheatley Editor in Chief

I can’t believe this is the third edition of the new ‘The Trident’ newspaper. As you will probably be able to tell, the Trident team have gone for a slightly different look for this newspaper. The design is very minimalistic with shorter articles. I think it looks great, good job team! I would also like to mention that Rob, the Print Editor and Head of Print for Trident has recently won an award for ‘Best Contribution for Trident Media’ for the outstanding copies of ‘The Trident’. Congratulations, Rob: reading through this edition you can definitely see why he is so worthy of the award.

I have to thank Rosy and Matt for the compliments: they have given immeasurable help in the production of this edition, and the others, so thank you! <3 Likewise, our brilliant team of writers and content creators are the reason why the third edition of our magazine is looking so fresh: the awesome imagery they’ve provided, a lot of it user-generated, combined with the easy-to-read, yet very informative narrations are great for quick reads. This time around, we’ve got no sports, but we do have an exploration of Edinburgh, tips for international students, and a student-led review of the Elehouse. Do have a flick through: you’ve earned a break!

Our review With the 2018 elections now firmly out of the way, I’d like to reflect, as Trident Media’s Chairman, on some of the most important takeaways from the process. Trident Media has always played an important part in the elections process, and it was an honour to host the 2018 hustings in the Elehouse and quiz each candidate on their manifestos. If you’ll forgive the self indulgence, I find it relevant that four out of five elected officers were present at the hustings, as I feel that such events represent an important way for candidates to get their messages out. Moreover, the VP Education category

(for

which

attended

hustings) was far tighter a vote than others, reinforcing that these events cannot be ignored.

The elections draw such a massive

amount of attention that, as well as the many positive campaigns we see around campus, there’ll always be scrutiny of those who find ways to push the rules. Allegations of foul play were (as ever) a part of this year’s vote; however, the way that the student community swiftly called these out was encouraging for future elections to come, and, overall, students seemed far more engaged with the process than in previous years, evident from the record number of votes that were cast.

Trident Media’s view on elections has

always been clear: this process is incredibly important, and so those who deliberately break the rules for their own gain are not fit to represent the student body. We welcome the rise in total votes cast, and hope that UH students continue to support the democratic system of the SU.

One final takeaway, that I’m sure will

be a sentiment shared by all, is that I’d like to compliment every single candidate I spoke with at the hustings for their respect and decency in the discussions held. It was encouraging that every candidate seemed to share a generally positive outlook on the university and the future of the Student’s Union, and I have full confidence in this upcoming year’s candidates to run the SU with a great deal of success. Good luck, everyone!

The Elehouse: Is It STUDENTWORTHY?! By Robert Wheatley StudentWorthy usually challenges one of Trident Media’s team to try then review a service on offer at the University of Hertfordshire, like we’ve done previously with Breakout!, but we realised there was something it was missing: YOU!

That’s not a threat: what we mean is, wouldn’t finding

out something’s student-worthiness incorporate the actual voices of our university’s community instead of just relying on our own? Of course it would, which is why we changed it up this time around and will now be using this same format. Anyway, we went on a long quest (i.e. we made a survey on Google Forms…) to find out what YOU thought about a fundamental part of the UH student experience: The Elehouse!

We weren’t holding back, so we thought we’d get a key aspect of the worthiness out of the way when we asked what they thought about the overall value for money at the Elehouse.

Most

of

our

anonymous

responders

thought

the Elehouse’s prices were good, with the best review suggesting that “You get great value for money!”, and the worst suggesting that the prices were “Absolutely shocking”; and that it was “no wonder we all go spoons instead.” On that note, the idea that items were expensive at the Elehouse was a common theme, and was the second-most common answer to the question at seven votes compared to the nine positives. So, The Trident thinks that, overall, the Elehouse’s prices are decent, but better deals can be found elsewhere.

Our second students how the whether its quality

question asked food was, and matched its price.

Most students were on the positive side, but with

the idea that there could be improvements to both the portion sizes, which were too small; the lack of variety of food and the lack of allergy-safe options. On the other side of the coin, one individual said the quality was “horrendous”, food was often served cold or missing ingredients, and portion sizes were far too small. Others were less critical, but still thought the prices were too expensive for how much you actually received. Because of this, The Trident thinks the food’s value is passable, meaning it could certainly be better.

Moving on, we talked about something perhaps not often considered, but still fundamental to the experience of any eaterie: how were the staff at the Elehouse?

Overwhelmingly, students said the staff at the

Elehouse were fantastic, mostly polite and helpful, and in fact helped contribute to a charming atmosphere overall. Granted, others drew attention to times when staff could be a bit rude,

question

The Elehouse’s Response: EleHouse always strives to give the best customer service as possible. We do apologise if you have experienced bad customer service in the Ele, it is something we are always working on with our staff to ensure you have the best experience. At times, the EleHouse can be particularly busy meaning food can take slightly longer than usual. However, we ensure to let the customer know this before taking their order. Regarding the atmosphere of the EleHouse, we do try our best to have different genres of music and playlists to make sure there is something for every student. We also have different entertainment including a pub quiz, comedy nights, karaoke and open mic nights to try and improve the atmosphere bringing in more students. We do understand the EleHouse will not be every students first choice to socialise however.

The results from this survey were collected anonymously, and there were 21 surveyants in total. Scores from each question are dictated by using the mode data value found from answers that were either positive, neutral and negative. However, without actual numerical score data, which we lacked, we could not provide fully accurate scores, so please take this into account.

with Reinke’s edema, and this was a consequence of acid reflux, smoking, talking too much and the overuse and misuse of his vocal cords.

IT IS OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY By Jake Borrett In September 2016, I graduated with a First-class honours degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. However, when reflecting, there were times when I never thought I would achieve this.

I enrolled at the University of Hertfordshire in September

2012, and like many other students I was apprehensive, but I was also fearful because I decided to study at my local university and to commute there due to ill health and family circumstances.

During my first year, I got to know many people from

the Humanities School; attended daily lectures and seminars; and occasionally socialised at the Elehouse and The Forum. I was diagnosed with dyspraxia at the age of eighteen by an educational psychologist, and my dad’s health declined rapidly due to his primary-progressive multiple sclerosis. Despite the ongoing commitments, however, I passed with 2.1 and 2.2 grades.

It was at the beginning of the second year in October

2013 when matters shifted. On my second day, I experienced a very serious Crohn’s disease flare-up, where some of the ulcers inside my inflamed small intestine burst which caused abdominal bleeding. Consequently, I was admitted to hospital for nearly a week and during this time had a colonoscopy, was given intravenous drips, and an emergency drip as my potassium levels fell dangerously low. Instead of resting in the hospital bed, I decided to spend the afternoon trying to study the topics I missed and sent emails out to my tutors.

The following week I returned to class, but it was at the

weekend when my mental health declined.

I remember sitting at the desk in my bedroom, trying

to type my name into a document but found myself screaming, swearing, crying and throwing objects around the room. When my mum arrived home, I told her I wanted to leave university, and so we agreed to defer the second year. These twelfth months were one of the hardest times of my life. I was irritable, anxious, rarely socialised, and there were moments when I wanted to end it all.

But, I received treatment for this, and I am so thankful

to my family and close friends who supported me, and the understanding I received from the School of Humanities and the disability services.

Returning

to

the

University

of

Hertfordshire

in

September 2014 was challenging, as I re-joined a new year with people I did not know. Despite the scary lows and the extreme highs, I met some lifelong friends and, through the mentoring scheme and having a study skills tutor, my grades and confidence soared. I also joined the Poker Society and Trident Media, and I loved them so much I kept with them and even won ‘Radio Presenter of the Year’ at the award ceremony in April 2017 for the radio show Jake Borrett on Trident Media Radio.

What I have learnt is that it is okay not to be okay. To

all of you who may be going through difficult times, know that the darkness can and will lift. Believe in yourself, and remember there is always someone who is willing to listen. Thank you for spilt laughter over pints of coke at Club de Havilland; the games of Monopoly and Ring of Fire; and all the hugs. Thank you for listening to me.
