Students Union helps students through exam period with some Leicesterlove
Exam times are always stressful, so to help students through, the Students’ Union has once again been playing fairy godmother and granting wishes with a bit of #LeicesterLove.
Students were asked to tweet their requests to the Students’ Union using the hashtag #LeicesterLove, and the executive team chose their favourite wishes to fulfil.
The wishes came in all shapes and sizes, from simple requests like free doughnuts, a paddling pool and supermarket vouchers, to the more extravagant – like a trip for two to Disneyland and a PlayStation 4.
Other prizes included memory foam pillows for one student to get a well-earned good night’s sleep once the exams are over, a computer monitor for a student whose laptop screen had broken and new trainers for another student so she could start training for a half-marathon post exams.
Roisin Gallagher, Wellbeing Officer in the Students’ Union said: “We really enjoyed running this campaign, it was a chance for us to remind students that the Students’ Union is here to support them. We wanted to send the message that whilst the exam period is intense and stressful it’s important to take breaks and continue to enjoy the things you love in order to stay motivated and reduce stress."
