The campaign to Save the UCL Health Centre is gaining ground: almost 1,200 people have signed the online petition (with about 200 more on paper), the website is online, the Union officers have had two meetings with UCL Senior Management, and the Gower Place Practice doctors have met with the Provost. But we don’t yet have a resolution.

Pi Media society and Film society have launched Pi TV, UCLU’s first form of student television! With programmes ranging from comedy chat shows with UCLU society presidents to backstage looks at upcoming student productions to news briefs from around campus, it’s well worth a look! Pi TV can be found on Pi Media’s website at www.pimedia.org.uk/category/pi-tv

Were you there, doing the Harlem Shake?

Tue, 19/02/2013 - 16:24

Not ones to let the latest craze to flood the internetz pass by without a valid Gower Street contribution, UCL students took over the Quad today at lunchtime to particpate in their own version of the “Harlem Shake” meme.

Hundreds…no, thousands…no, maybe even millions…(maybe not millions) of students jumped around in costumes (they were costumes, right?) to the now-infamous tune created by electronic musician Baauer.

So, were you there?

Lots of you tell us that they’d like to get involved in volunteering … but that you’re too busy to commit to something. Others like a bit of variety in their life and don’t want to do the same thing each week.  And there are those who are a bit unsure about volunteering.

Well, we’ve something for you all – our One-Off Volunteering Programme. We have loads of activities to try which don’t require a regular commitment – just sign up, show up and have a great time.

UCL’s Spectrum Volunteering society, run by medical students since 1982, has the simple ethos to link children with special needs (ranging from cerebral palsy, Autistic spectrumSpectrum volunteers and child disorder and Global developmental delay) to volunteering pairs to support and foster their development and happiness.

We’re looking for a male student to take part in an existing mentoring project at Archbishop Tenison’s School in Lambeth. You’ve got into UCL – could you inspire a young person to do the same? As a mentor, you’ll be supporting a student studying for their GCSEs, both at the school, on visits to UCL and on a residential trip to another university city at the end of the academic year. You’ll get training and support, and the chance to make a big difference to someone’s life chances. It’s not too late to get involved.
