Pride Library

Warwick Pride's library now has a permanent home! Pop along to the SUHQ Work Zone (formerly Central Meeting Room) for a mixture of some academic texts, fiction, out-of-date 80s fiction, and some old selfhelp books that really make you cringe... Feel free to use any of the books while you're in there, but please don't remove them without first contacting hello@warwickpride.org.

Student Council

As always, this week's Student Council meeting is open to all SU members to attend. This will be the last meeting of term 2, so pop along to MR4/5 at 4pm on Tuesday to keep up to date with what's going on at your SU, including reports from each sabbatical offer and SU Exec chair.
