Wellbeing Week

Posted 7 Months Ago

The Student Union has organised some great treats for our students as part of Wellbeing Week (Week 8).
From Therapets to petting alpacas and from dancing to yoga - we've had it all! 

Our favourite dogs returned for cuddles and petting and for the first time ever we welcomed Bobcat Alpacas to the campus. They roamed around outside the Union as students flocked down to walk, pet, cuddle and get selfies with them! 

The purpose of this week was to provide some events and support to help students out during this stressful time of the semester with deadlines looming etc.

Keep going guys, you're doing great! You're nearly there.

Big love,

Your Student Union
