#Sabbdate from Jordan & Stella

 

#SABBDATE 1 

Jordan & Stella give us an update as to what they've been up to since starting!

 

Whilst we've been working on getting Freshers 2019 ready ~ Jordan & Stella have been doing lots of exciting and awesome things behind the scenes! What do your Sabbs get up to you ask? well we found out in their first #sabbdate


It has been an eventful summer so far, full of celebrations, planning and training

 

At the end June, we graduated! Woot woot! ??
A massive congratulations to everyone that also celebrated their graduation #AUBClassOf2019

In July, we started our two-week handover with Gio and Chloe the former President and Vice president.
The month kicked off with a showcasing of our ‘F.A.Q.’ exhibition both in Bournemouth and London at the Truman Brewery. Throughout the month, we were also able to see the various summer shows put together by AUB’s third year graduates. Commercial Photography’s ‘Triggered’, Fine Art Photography’s ‘Fabricate’, Graduate Fashion Week’s runways just to name a few. We were also lucky enough to attend the BFI which streamed the works of BA(Hons) Film and BA(Hons) Animation’s works. It’s been incredible to be able to see the outcomes that develop from the years of studying at AUB and we wish everyone who has graduated all the best on their journey!

Somewhere in between the training and the shows, we started a new hobby: indoor rock climbing, and the one thing we learnt from it is; the trick to jumping off a wall is to let yourself fall freely! ??‍??

Shortly after, we said goodbye to Gio and Chloe ?? - who are now taking a well-deserved break and doing amazing things elsewhere.

At the end of July, we visited Bath for NUS’ Lead and Change where we received training on how to be awesome Sabbs! We met Sabbatical Officers from other universities who shared a lot of their advice over the few days. We also met Zamzam Ibrahim, the current NUS president! That same weekend we went to festivals where we camped over the period of a weekend. Have you guys been to any festivals this summer? If so, which one did you attend!

July flew by and August is here and we are currently in the process of planning your freshers and soft touch events. There are loads of exciting events planned and you can find out what events are available on the AUBSU website and Facebook Freshers page. September is around the corner, make sure to buy your tickets as soon as possible and we look forward to seeing and welcoming you all soon!
