There were 76 pieces of feedback relating to Sports, Societies and Events. The key themes across the feedback were as follows:

The Stannary said: “We are looking at reducing the decoration and production cost to keep the ticket prices as low as possible. However, the security costs and staffing costs keep the event price fairly high due to it being such a large capacity venue. We've reviewed the music styles and are trying to move it towards cheesy charts music and this will be in place for the future events.”

“A happy hour has also been introduced to engage students with cheaper drinks – this came from speak week feedback about the cost of the Stannary.”

This is what happened: Sarah Redman, President Student Experience said: “Koofi has started to host some of the more chill nights, with ResLife hosting quizzes and other events like that. We've tried to put on events at the Falmouth campus in the past, with limited success, however, we are always keen to respond to student requests and will work with students based in Falmouth to offer more social activity based across all campuses.”

This is what happened: Sarah Redman, President Student Experience said: “SLVP’s were altered slightly last year to become societies giving them more ownership and responsibility. This allows them to organise and design their society as they see fit, whilst making sure it also adheres to the SU’s constitutional guidelines. The Students’ Union wants all societies to be as student led as possible therefore ensuring all members get a more personalised experience.

This is what happened: Sarah Redman, President Student Experience said: “Working in partnership with ResLife, the SU has been putting on a programme of activities, Hwetha, that are accessible to all and are not intended to be competitive. These include: Yoga, Table Tennis, Badminton, Social runs, Spinning while watching movies, Dance; and also incorporate a variety of the Wednesday activities provided by Flexsi Fitness. In the spring term when the days lengthen and hopefully the weather is friendlier, we will embrace our great outdoors and include more lovely water sports.”

This is what happened: Sarah Redman, President Student Experience said: “The Students’ Union is in complete agreement with this, especially because some of our sports teams are doing so brilliantly in a variety of leagues. Joe Phillips, the SU Sports Chair, is currently working hard to better promote this and working with me to lobby FXPlus for better opportunities to display fixtures and results across all our campuses.””
