This page documents my activities as Student Representative during my second year of the BA Fine Art (Hons) at Coleg Menai.
3rd May 2017
I attended a meeting with Alana, Julie and Billie about the forthcoming change in our affiliation to Bangor University. The outcome of the meeting was that I had to gain a unanimous agreement from our group for everyone to be included in the move.
I spoke to several people in person and emailed everyone else.
This is just to catch up with those I didn’t get chance to see after yesterday’s meeting with Alana. I had hoped to speak to everyone in person but this isn’t really practical at the moment.Basically the meeting was to discuss the move over from Glyndwr to Bangor University which I believe Helen told you all about yesterday morning.Essentially the move won’t really affect us at all other than that we will get a Bangor Uni Degree at the end of next year. We will probably also have access to Bangor Uni resources too.Bangor University has been established for a lot longer than Glyndwr and everyone I’ve spoken too sees this as a positive move.For this to happen for our year we need to have unanimous agreement that we are happy for this to happen, If only one of us doesn’t agree then our group will remain with Glyndwr.At the moment the college are seeking a verbal agreement from us all but at some point we will have a form to sign to say we agree. I have to go back to Alana on Tuesday with our collective decision, so please could you all let me know if you agree with this.If you have any other questions about this, I can ask Alana at the meeting on Tuesday. Please can everyone reply with your decision or let me know by text or Facebook by Tuesday.
I was unable to attend the following meeting, however I did report our unanimous agreement to Alana.
