It is with a heavy heart that we say Goodbye to our Broadstairs Campus at the end of this semester. The Students' Union has been a part of Broadstairs since it first opened in September 2000 and fun times have been had over the years.
I have been in post as the Broadstairs Coordinator for the last 3 years and over that time I have met some truly talented students who have been a joy to work with.
Our mission within the Students' Union is to better student life and enrich student experiences and looking back at the Freshers Week Events, Freshers Fayres, Summer Fun Event, Charity Gigs and Puppy Days we've had, I think we have played our part.
It was always my ambition to encourage students at Broadstairs to get involved and they certainly have. New societies have been set up and the Broadstairs band, City Players, kicked off the Summer Ball this year. The Broadstairs Welcome Crew were definitely in a league of their own, each member giving up their time day after day throughout Freshers Week to welcome new students to Broadstairs, to introduce them to their circle of friends, to make them feel at home and to give them the best start at CCCU. I could not have done my job without them all.
Despite its size, Broadstairs is a solid community of incredibly friendly students who are there for each other. I wish all those transitioning over to Canterbury the best of luck, good times are ahead and the Students' Union will be there for you.
So Goodbye Broadstairs and Hello Canterbury!
