Hi everyone! My name is Tara, and I am your friendly neighbourhood Community Development Officer (Community DO) for 2018/2019. It is my job to make sure that students living in Town are presented with the same opportunities that are presented to those living in Halls. It is also my job to make the living experience better for students living in town; this will include improving the relationship between the students of Loughborough and the permanent residents of Loughborough town, and aiding students with any issues they may face about living in town.
We are the LSU Community. Between myself (Community DO) and the Community Wardens of Loughborough University, we are here for every single student that lives in town.
It is no secret that the majority of events and opportunities that the Loughborough Students Union organise are primarily organised for and attended by Students who live in Halls of Residence. However, there are somewhere in the region of 14,000 students living in town, almost double the number living on Campus. Therefore, we as the LSU Community are here to make sure you get the opportunities that you deserve, and look after your welfare in the same way that Freshers are looked after.
We will be organising many events throughout the year that will improve your experience. These events will range from Sporting events, RAG/Charity events, Action projects in the local community and all kinds of social events.
Now you know who we are and what we do, allow me to officially welcome you to the Loughborough Students Community.Just because you move out of halls and into town doesn't mean that you have to have any less of a great experience as you did when in halls. Your student experience is what you make it to be, and we will help you to make it be the best it possibly can be.
