RGU: Union has begun to implement plans to make the terrace on Union Way a social hub. So far, a pool table has been added to the area.
President of Communication and Democracy Michael Ife said: “With the pool table in place, there will be more interaction from the students and staff who might also consider using it as a recreation time.”
The idea was introduced after students asked the union for extra activities on campus. This is to ensure that students have something else to occupy them between classes.
Another aim of making the area more recreational is to bring students closer to the union. Michael said it is important to give each student a sense of belonging.
He added: “[Students] can easily pop into the union office and engage in discussions and deliberations.”
