On Thursday 4th May, we hosted our Annual Union Awards to celebrate you! The wonderfully talented students of the University of Portsmouth.
Bringing together individuals and groups from across the Union to celebrate your successes, with a drinks reception and awards ceremony highlighting the work and efforts of all this years nominees and winners.
This year's Officer Team were your hosts for the evening, joined on stage by various cohosts throughout the evening to present certain awards, including the University's Vice-Chancellor, Graham Galbraith.
Temidayo Dosunmu, your Development Officer had the following to say:
What a night to remember as we celebrate the best of the best of what University of Portsmouth has to offer, from 7's to PAL to Course Rep/Faculty Reps to Student Groups and Staff, It really was a night. Even though it took a while to prepare and present it, and we were all exhausted running up and down attempting to put it together, the students' excitement and happiness made the entire experience worthwhile, and I wouldn't change anything for the world. Congratulations to all of the winners and nominations on this special day. We salute you all for going above and beyond to make a difference on campus and around the world, and for being the next generation of leaders, innovators, and change makers. You are an inspiration to all of us, and we can't wait to see what you do in the coming years. Let us continue to collaborate to make a difference on campus and beyond.
