    Student leaders help improve your university experience: here is why you should vote!

    Student Leadership is an integral part of student success, as well as a fulfilling academic experience for every student attending university. With SU Elections approaching fast, our student nominees getting ready to start their campaigns, and the atmosphere at university filled with electric anticipation, it makes us think; Why? Why is it so vital to participate in the voting process? And why do we even NEED students at university leading and taking charge? It is known that Leadership and Passion often go hand in hand; leaders passionate about their work and what they believe in and having the ability to arouse that passion in their fellow students and team members…

    SU Elections: Exclusive Statement From DIVERSITY

    Image courtesy of Huddersfield SU From the moment it was announced, this year’s election sweep was surrounded by more controversy than any SU elections in my experience, and I have experienced my fair share of these elections now. Yet the main complaint against DIVERSITY is a complaint that we hear virtually every year. Those of you who were around last year (and the year before that!) may remember similar accusations being made toward the group UNITY. We reached out to DIVERSITY and asked for a statement from the slate, DIVERSITY as a team issued the following response:   “There were some issues during the elections in which were dealt with…

    SU Elections Results Night: What Went Down

    Photo Courtesy of Huddersfield SU What a night! Three days of voting and endless volumes of campaigning later, the new team of Exec Officers and their President were revealed in The Warehouse during the Student Union Election Results night. Students and candidates gathered to witness the revelation of the winners, the atmosphere was cheerful and optimistic – no hint as to what was yet to come. First position to be determined was VP for Communications and Engagement. Three wonderful candidates participated in this year’s election: Luke Goodwin, Carys-Fleur Wilkes and Emma Denny, but there could only be one winner: Emma Denny whom we wish all the best as a VP.…

    Interview: Ady Suleiman

    We’re into our fourth week of the Coffeehouse Sessions tour now, with this week bringing Nottingham-born musician Ady Suleiman to the attention of our Students’ Union. I caught up with him after his set to chat about how the tour is going, how he would describe his music (if you’ve listened to his music before, you’ll know how hard it is to put a genre on it) and how he likes his tea/coffee. You’re two weeks into the Coffeehouse Session tour now, how are the shows going so far? So far, so good. Every place we’ve gone to has been different and had a different reception but it’s been really…

    Coffee House Sessions: Ady Suleiman

    Arriving onstage later than planned with no time even for a brief introduction is something a fair number of artists would be irked by – for Ady Suleiman however, this is no bother. By way of introduction, the Sony Music-signed artist takes to the stage armed only with his voice and his guitarist; the resulting harmony symphonised between them is much stronger a greeting than any announcement could have awarded them. Despite the lack of “Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Ady Suleiman to the stage,” the attention of the audience has been well and truly captured. Suleiman has only time for three songs to declare his worth, but having impressed…

    Coffee House Sessions: Natalie Gauci

    By Paige Lambie, images courtesy of Huddersfield SU Natalie Gauci is one talented lady – combining genres like soul, pop, jazz and electro, she is one of the music industry’s lesser known chameleons, gliding effortlessly into each guise. I had the chance to chat to her about everything from her early career to ‘real’ artistry – make sure to stick around to read the full interview. Having previously been crowned winner of 2007’s Australian Idol, today is certainly a step back in time for Gauci – a backtrack that she has obviously welcomed with open arms. On an acoustic tour of universities across the UK, relying solely on her voice, a…

    Interview: Natalie Gauci

    By Paige Lambie The Coffeehouse Sessions tour is currently entertaining students’ unions up and down the country, bringing some of the best unknown voices to each and every corner of the UK. Last Wednesday saw Australian-born musician and teacher Natalie Gauci take to the stage on her fourteenth show in eight days. Catching up with the former Australian Idol winner after her sound-check, I asked how she’s finding the tour so far, how she’s tamed her eclectic style of music to a strictly acoustic basis, and also how she likes her coffee. Paige: The Coffeehouse Sessions tour must be pretty hectic, performing 23 shows in about two weeks. How are…

    8 things to expect on a night out in Huddersfield.

    After a whole year of spending my loan (and secretly my overdraft) on partying and nights out around Huddersfield, I have definitely seen enough to last me a lifetime. As a fresher, you are probably already wondering where to go, what to wear and who knows what else, and although I can’t help you with everything I can definitely tell you a few things to expect! First off, there is a night for every day of the week. Tokyo, Camel, Revolution, Five Bar… they are all open at least one day a week so you’re always covered for any impromptu nights out with the flatmates. Even on Sundays you can…
