ZEN BAR ATMOSPHERE


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted to see a change in the Zen Bar in the SU at Cardiff campus, with more events and activities there.

 

ACTION

  • The Welfare Officer is pursuing one of this year's Student Voice Representative research projects, which outlined how to make Cardiff SU space more inviting (Charys Bestley, SVR for Production and Performance).
  • This is linked to the SU Presence in Cardiff and Newport theme, where the SU President and Welfare Officer are looking into getting new signage for Cardiff campus SU.

 

UPDATE

SEPTEMBER 6TH

  • The Welfare Officer and the SU President met with the SU Senior Management Team with a proposal outlined for changes to the Zen Bar. The SU Senior Management Team wanted time to discuss and investigate the proposal further. 

 

OCTOBER 16TH

  • The SU President and the Marketing Communications Manager met with a company to discuss signage for Cardiff Campus SU. The company will send the SU mock-ups of the designs. 

 

NOVEMBER 5TH

  • The Welfare Officer has confirmed that there are two regular nights in the Zen Bar now. On Mondays, there will be a pub quiz and on Wednesdays, there will be open mic nights. Students are welcome to contact the Welfare Officer if they have any ideas of events for the Zen Bar.

HOW IT WORKS

2. Teams of students gather to hack solutions to the biggest problems.

3. Teams pitch their ideas to a panel of University big wigs.

4. SU Officers and teams work with staff to make the ideas a reality.
