To put it frankly, I hated my first term at Warwick. That is quite a bold statement to make and hate may be a bit of a strong word, it’s not to say that those first ten weeks were an absolute disaster from start to finish, university just wasn’t what I had anticipated it to be.

The Big Decision

Tonight was the night of the ‘Big Decision’. The candidates, campaigners and supporters were all present to find out their fate. The first sabbatical position announced was the Postgraduate officer. It was no surprise when Nat Panda was announced to have won. Despite being uncontested, it was noted how admirable his endless campaigning efforts were. Next up we had the Sports officer. Ted Crowson took victory over fellow candidate Cecilia. After that, the Societies officer was elected. Fierce competition was seen in this category as figures were very close but…
