UEA Students’ Union and the University of East Anglia are currently working towards the NUS Alcohol Impact Award, which aims to create social norms of responsible drinking on campus and create healthier, safer student communities.

It’s not about stopping students from drinking, it’s about building healthy responsible drinking habits, for the large number of students who do not drink alcohol, campus life may not be as inclusive as they’d like and we’d like to change that!

We’d like to find out more about our students and their drinking behaviours, and perhaps bust some of those myths that student life is based around drinking! That is why we’d like to hear from all students, those who drink several times a week, to those who drink every now and then for a friend’s birthday party, to those who don’t drink at all. So if you’re not a fan of VKs and you’d much rather have a chilled night in or stay sober on a night out, we would love to hear from you.

There’s also a chance to win £100 or one of ten £25 runner up prizes if you complete the survey, so what are you waiting for? The survey closes on the 26th November, so hurry!

Do something different festival
Camille Koosyial activities and opportunities officer

The Do Something Different programme has really taken off this year. We've had 470 events so far, attended by over 4600 people, and a different event happening every single day. An amazing array of events have been put on by societies, staff and individual students from sports tasters to craft workshops, trips, language learning and much more! Instead of slowing down, the events are only just getting started and it's nearly time for the Do Something Different Festival.

 
mental health isn't waiting
India Edwards welfare, community and diversity officer

Last semester I wrote a blog about the waiting times for counselling services at UEA.
At uea(su) we want the University to make mental health a priority; increasing investment in Student Support Services and expanding the provision for students dealing with mental health issues. If you are struggling with your mental health as a student, the last thing you need is a barrier to support thrown up in the form of an extensive wait for counselling. However, this is the reality at UEA at the moment,
