Firstly, thanks to those of you that attended the SAVE OUR BURSARIES
demonstration on Thursday! We had well over 800 students and academics
attending, which sent a really strong signal to the University that we will
not accept their planned slashes to bursaries. We'll be taking the issue to
the Vice Chancellor and University Council on Monday, and challenging his
blocking of our amendments.
Secondly, we'd like to thank all the candidates in the CUSU Elections 2011.
We're proud to announce that we had near-record turnout with over 4200
votes, with hundreds tuning in to watch the candidates' debates last
Saturday! Thanks also to everyone who voted, online or in college Warmest
congratulations to the successful candidates.
We'll be handing over to the new sabbatical officers in mid-July, with the
part-time officers taking office after Easter.

Finally, have a look at the CUSU part-time Executive elections that are up

positions, so you can get really involved in the many campaigns we're
running, from Access and Target Schools to Ethical Consumerism.
