Godalming College is a place that drives aspiration. It is a place that motivates innovation. It is a place that accepts diversity and allows you to think outside of the box. If this is the type of College you want to be part of, then Godalming is for you. Personally, choosing to be a member of the Godalming family was one of my best decisions up to now.
The key ingredient to the success of this community is that you as students are able to get involved in the decision making process, through the Students Union, which is the body that allows your voice to be heard. The Student Union provides the opportunity for each of you to be part of the change that you want to see in this College. Therefore in the friendly, open and supportive atmosphere, the Student Union Executive is seen as one of the most important means of communication, between you and the senior management team.
Of course someone would ask: what has the Student Union done so far? First and foremost, we have tried to encourage students to participate in key events that are aiming to raise awareness and/or funds for local or major charities. In the last year we took part in the National 'No Smoking' Day and 'Red Nose' Day and we have created awareness of the outrageous circumstances that people, especially children in Africa live in. We promote a healthy lifestyle, keeping both body and mind active, to help this we have managed to make significant modifications to the canteen, by introducing salads and other healthy foods and snack options. In addition to all the points above, we have organised balls, parties and concerts, in which we try to combine fun with the importance of socialising.
If you take into consideration all the above you will understand that Godalming College is a great place to be. It is the right environment to explore different aspects of your personality by getting involved in the decision making process and leveraging your social responsibility. We, as your representative, would be more than happy to hear your ideas and problems, so do not hesitate to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
