The development is being carried out in response to students requests for a space that is student centric, mobile device friendly and can be used as a place to meet to discuss group work or to socialise. It will also provide a central hub for assistance from the Student Central Team.

A word from your Student Rep on the USC Eco the Environmental Collective

Myles Kreis - Student Representative Council and Student Liaison Group

USC Environmental Collective

Regardless of what discipline you choose to study here at USC you are going to be required to study sustainability and how you can innovate processes in the workplace to contribute towards a sustainable future. A great way for you to gain a better understanding of sustainability, care for the environment and contribute to the USC community is to get involved with USC Eco. USC Eco is a group of university students who are passionate about the environment and seek to contribute towards the university's environmental policies concerning students and the wider community. In addition to this, USC Eco raise awareness and encourage discussion about environmental issues, as well as organise and promote campaigns highlighting environmental issues. On Saturday, 11th March 2017, around 15 members of the newly established USC Eco Fraser Coast group participated in their first tree planting event and planted over 100 plants besides the waterway near the Discovery Sphere. It was an excellent morning for all to get involved, meet some new people and enjoy a cold drink at the café after. There are already plans for future events, so if you are interested in getting involved, please send your expression of interest to: theteam@usceco.com.
