SU Weekly Email 15 – 5th Dec 2019

Weekly Email

Welcome to your weekly email from your Students’ Union.

 

Wind Down Week Events TODAY!

  • 12pm Get your free SU Keep Cup + sign the Sustainability Pledge at Smokey’s Café – limited number left!
  • 3pm-4.30pm Colouring! Take a break and drop in to the Art Room and Hub Central for some colouring in + sweets!

 

Here’s our top 10 tips for the exams:

  1. Check, double check and triple check your timetable NOW! Every year we have students who read their timetable wrong and end up missing an exam – don’t be that guy!
  2. Find your College ID and bring it with you to every exam. If you have lost it call to the Student Registry Helpdesk to get a new one for €20. You will be fined €30 if you don’t have your ID with you.
  3. Plan how you are getting to the exams NOW and set all your alarms. You need to be there 20 minutes prior to the start of the examination. City Direct are running a direct bus each day to the Salthill exam venues and it’s €2 per journey.
  4. Leave your phone at home – it’s a €20 fine for bringing your phone to the exam AND other penalties can include mark reduction and getting zero marks for the module.
  5. WASH! If you even have your shopping list written on your hand scrub it off. If you have any writing on your body, no matter how unrelated to the exam, you’ll fail the exam.
  6. Follow the directions of the Exam Invigilators at all times.
  7. If you need advice on deferring your exams please contact the SU Education Officer or your College Office.
  8. You can’t bring in pencil cases, glasses cases or calculator covers to the exam.
  9. You can’t leave the Exam Venue for the first hour or the last 30 mins of the exam
  10. Relax – you got this!

Tips for Looking After Yourself During Exams

  1. Don’t isolate yourself
    Exam time can be very lonely as people go off studying on their own. Try to make a conscious effort to meet up with friends, or plan something nice at the end of a day of study with others. Socialising with others is crucial around this time. Cutting yourself off from the world is not a good idea.
  2. Don’t be a hero
    Surviving on 2 hours sleep and 7 cans of red bull is not the way the human body was meant to function. Schedule in some sanity breaks and exercise during your day – a 30 minute walk can work wonders.
  3. Eat regularly
    You don’t have to eat like a nutritionist, but eating three meals a day and getting in some healthy snacks will keep you on track. Food fuels your body, so if you’re constantly eating junk you won’t feel great.
  4. Sleep regularly
    Many people completely change their sleep patterns during exam time. If you can, try to fit in 7-8 hours’ sleep and follow a routine. It will help you when exams start.
  5. Stay hydrated
    Water is your friend!
  6. Talk to friends and look out for each other
    You might notice some friends or classmates struggling at this time. Maybe they need to be pointed in the direction of one of the support services listed below.
  7. Ask for help if you need it
    Student Health Unit
    NUIG Counselling Service
    Chaplains
    SU Education Officer
    SU Welfare & Equality Officer

There’s a free SafeTALK course on 6.15pm-9.15pm Tues 3rd Dec in the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill. SafeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares attendees, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. SafeTALK-trained helpers can recognise these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources

News & Events

Students Get Their Socks On For Charity

NUI Galway Students’ Union have today launched fundraising socks featuring a tribute to the iconic “Galway Yellow” (AKA Big Yellow Thing) sculpture on campus. The socks, a collaboration with Galway company Irish Socksciety, are on sale now for €9 a pair with all proceeds going to the SU charities. They’re an ideal present for anyone who has ever said “I’ll meet ya at the Big Yellow Thing” over the years!

The “Galway Yellow” sculpture outside the NUIG Library was created by artist Brian King in 1976 and has been a landmark and meeting point for UCG/NUIG students since then. It goes by a few nicknames most commonly “The Big Yellow Thing” but also “The Squiggle” and “Archimedes Balls”. The socks are on sale now from the SU Office and the SU Shop at NUI Galway. They can also be purchased online HERE.

Students’ Union President Clare Austick said: “We are delighted to launch our socks just in time for the NUI Galway conferring ceremonies. They are a great gift and will support the work of two very worthy local charities AIDS West and Domestic Violence Response. We hope past and present staff and students will love the socks as much as we do. We look forward to seeing them on cosy feet across campus!”

AIDS West offer the highest quality care and support to those affected by HIV/AIDS/STIs and to those worried about their sexual health.

Domestic Violence Response are a community led organisation responding to the issue of domestic abuse in County Galway.
