Warwick Postgraduate Newsletter - Week 3, Term 2
Hi <<First Name>>,
 
We hope you've had a good couple of weeks. Here's a quick round-up of news and information.

This week saw the opening of SU Officer nominations. If you have ideas about things you'd like to change at the University or SU, then becoming an Officer is a brilliant way to represent your fellow students and to help improve things for the better.  Put yourself forward!

Following graduation last week, take a look at who received honorary degrees, and check out the photos (as far as we know, none of these were taken with the Hubble Space Telescope).

Don't forget, if you want to sign up to the Warwick Skills Portfolio Award, you need to attend a 'Getting Started' workshop - your last chance is Tuesday 2 February!

All the best,

Student Communications Team

p.s. If you're fed up of breaking your egg, then do something about it.
Chinese New Year: Celebrate Chinese New Year with us on 8 February at the PG Hub! There'll be plenty of activities (calligraphy stall, ink painting, dumpling competition), music, food, drinks and an opportunity to explore Chinese traditions. You can also celebrate by joining our trip to Manchester on February 6th.
PG Create a Project Competition: Do you have a a great idea for a community volunteering project?  You can apply for up to £1000 of funding from the Postgraduate Community Engagement team to set up and run your project, with Warwick Volunteers supporting and advising you along the way.
Postgraduate Researcher Lunch: The common adage "There's no such thing as a free lunch with PG-relevant information" will be flatly refuted this week.  Join us at The Graduate on Friday 29 January from 12pm for a free lunch and a chance to meet informally, discuss ideas, or just have a catch-up.
Varsity 2016: Next month sees the return of Varsity, where our sports teams go head-to-head with Coventry over an action-packed few days, and we want you to help cheer on Team Warwick.  Check out the fixtures and buy your tickets here.
Submit your questions for the VC:  You can now send us your questions for Vice Chancellor Stuart Croft's first 'Question Time' event. The event will be held on Monday 1 February in MS.02 (Maths & Stats Building), from 6pm to 8pm.
Switch it off:  Early evening (5-7pm) is a peak time for energy use, and to generate it the UK has to use the most inefficient and polluting power stations to generate electricity. Do your bit to reduce carbon emissions by switching things off.  Explore the University and NUS pages to find out more.
Warwick Economics Summit 5-7 February:  Warwick Economics Summit is an entirely student-run international forum where you can listen to some of the world's most revered and inspirational speakers.  Explore what's on.
LGBT History Month:  On Wednesday 3 February, 12.20 - 13.30, Registrar Ken Sloan will be raising the Rainbow Flag outside University House (by reception), followed with a reception and short talk by Daniel Smith from Stonewall.  Please register to attend the reception and talk here.
Funding opportunities:  If you're looking for funds for extra-curricular projects, The Opportunity Fund provides one-off bursaries to individuals, clubs or societies. Or, if you're feeling entrepreneurial, the Student Enterprise Fund provides support for your new start-up or social enterprise.
And finally... Next week MaRaWthon 2016 will see our student radio station, RaW 1251AM, broadcasting outdoors in the Piazza for 100 hours - non-stop, day and night - to raise money for the mental health charity, Mind.
