Are you ready for Freshers’ Week 2014?
It’s time for another year at the University of Hertfordshire (UH) and that means a new year within the Students’ Union and student media too. I’m proud to be introducing our new team in the first issue of UniVerse and we’ll be doing our best to bring you all the latest uni news and exciting features throughout the year.
Whether this is the beginning of your journey at Herts or the end, you should be making this year count. UH offers so many great opportunities and events to be a part of, and it’s these experiences that can make your time here unforgettable.
This includes the amazing events taking place each day and night throughout Freshers’ Week, the groups and societies you can get involved with, and a whole realm of opportunities during your time as a student.
Hertfordshire Students’ Union
Throughout the year your Students’ Union is here to provide you with countless opportunities including societies, volunteering, jobs and training. The team of staff and elected officers are on board to offer you the advice and support you might need during your time at uni.
If you’re looking for a place to raise an issue or share your views, these are the people to talk to. For more about the services on offer visit www.hertfordshire.su
Here at Trident Media we provide you with news, music and TV, from our three outlets run by students, for students. You’ll be seeing a lot from our print team who produce the free UniVerse newspaper and BlueMoon magazine, Union TV, Crush Radio and Crush Underground DJs, as we bring you all the latest entertainment on campus.
In the first issue of UniVerse we’re bringing you all the information you could need to know as a new fresher, from events at the Forum, to a guide to the local area, and how to save money and stay safe on a night out.
If you think Trident Media is something you would like to get involved in, visit the Students’ Union website to become a member. If you’re a keen writer, have the eye for design or photography, want to present your own radio show, or start a new TV show, then we want to hear from you. It’s our job to express the opinions, interests and views of our students here at Herts, and we can’t do that without a great team.
Members of Trident Media get access to the Media Suite where all our hard work takes place, a free Trident Media t-shirt, a certificate of recognition and full training. It’s a great opportunity to gain hands on experience or develop a new skill within the media industry.
Enjoy your start as a fresher and keep an eye out for the first issues of UniVerse and BlueMoon magazine coming out soon, with a fun freshers’ challenge for you all to take part in!
