The first Student Assembly of 2018 was due to be held in the Students’ Union Cafe on Thursday 25th January. However, due to there not being enough Part-Time Officers in attendance for a meeting to take place, it was rescheduled for Thursday 8th February.
After moving rooms due to the incredible number of students in attendance (over 250 students), the meeting was moved to the SU Cafe and was chaired by Joe Williams.
