  5. 5. Castle Radio<br /> <br /> <br />The new Castle College AM Radio Station is to be set up to run along the lines of a Student Union society. This gives Confetti students many opportunities in terms of helping to run the station and providing or developing content for transmission.<br /> <br />The transmitter is housed at the college’s Carlton Road site, which is quite close and there is a meeting at Confetti in S020, 1pm on Monday 28th September for any students who might be interested in getting involved. Robin Webber-Jones and Jen Hope from the college will be hosting the meeting.<br />Please talk to your tutor for more information.<br />
  6. 6. NUS Cards<br /> <br />Buy your NUS card at reception now for only £10! <br />
  7. 7. Student Cards<br />At enrolment you will all have been issued with a new Confetti card, lanyard and holder – you will need to make sure you are wearing it visibly at all times whilst on site. It is also a fire safety requirement that you use it to log in and out of the building.<br />For security purposes, any member of staff may ask to see your Confetti card at any time. If you cannot produce your ID, you will be asked to leave the premises. Your card is your responsibility; lost or stolen cards can be replaced at EST, but you will need to pay for this service.<br />
  8. 8. New Selection of Food Available<br />Over the coming weeks and months students at Confetti will be able to benefit from the new catering services offered in Antenna. A selection of reasonably priced and healthy sandwiches, rolls and salads are being made from fresh by our own team of Chefs and sold in our vending machines.<br />We are also working on a scheme to allow access to hot food in the near future, as has been requested by many of you in feedback questionnaires. Watch this space for developments!<br /> <br />
  9. 9. Student Reps will need to be chosen by each group very soon. When making your selection make sure you are confident they will attend meetings regularly and be able to speak for your group confidently and without bias. <br /> <br />The Role and Commitment of a Student Rep:<br />Student Reps will need to attend an away day in October to complete training. This is essential to ensure you get the most out of the role and represent your  group effectively. <br /> <br />Student Reps from every course meet each term to discuss the quality of Confetti’s services and provide feedback to help us improve. Further responsibility can be opted for to attend Confetti Education Managers meetings, where you get the opportunity to provide valuable insights into the views of your peers and help to shape decisions that are made about our provision.<br /> <br />Being a Student Rep looks great on CV’s and UCAS applications! Whatever level you are involved at being a Student Representative at Confetti is an interesting insight to the workings of Creative Industries. <br /> <br />
