This year, all first year students were provided with a hard copy of a booklet entitled RU Learning at registration. The booklet aims to make clear what the University expects of students with respect to learning and offers some practical advice about what students could do to make the most of learning in higher education.
Since the booklet was distributed, a large number of staff have indicated that they believe that the booklet would be useful to more senior students. As a result, an electronic copy has been placed on RU Connected for download.
Some of us might wear the hats of sister, student, book-club member and soccer enthusiast. Others might wear the hats of poet, brother and surfer. But there is one further hat that we should all be wearing, and all the time at that. The Green Hat. Regardless of who we are and what we do, we have a duty to ourselves, to others, and to the environment. That is the Green Hat. It should not be difficult for every student to find a Green Hat to fit them, either."
Environmental Week has been split into seven theme days this year - something for everyone!
