Speak Week

Thank you for participating in Speak Week 2019! 

This is by no means all the feedback or all the actions we plan on taking from Speak Week 2019; keep an eye on this page where we'll update as your feedback is transformed into more positive change!




Your Feedback:




'Create a journalism society'




'Orchestra society'



'More networking events'






'I would have a week where people from different backgrounds are able to showcase their own ethnic culture. So for example, setting up stalls for students who want to showcase their culture in whatever way they can through food, clothing or even music. We have a number of students that are from abroad but we share the same campus so I think this would be a good way of bringing the students and staff as well closer together.'


'I would make the campus more social, by holding more events in 92 and promoting them in the student village.'

'Host parties and massive drinking events. Get a pool table.'


'Stuff in the SU like a pool table, beer pong, etc, to promote student engagement.'

'Host parties and massive drinking events. Get a pool table.'

'Provide microwave at Peterborough campus'
