Each week we bring you a summary of the best tweets and photos from the world of students' unions as well as stories about NUS in the press.
What happened on NUS Connect this week?
This week on Connect, we interviewed Channel 4 News presenter and journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy on his journey into journalism and his views on Black representation in the media. Krishnan also gave some advice to student looking to pursue a career in the industry.
Jez Gilmour, manager of Chester Students' Union's CH1 Bar joined us in the Hot Seat to explain how their cocktail offer, now accounting for 30 per cent of the bar's trade, has increased and evolved over the years whilst still remaining kind to their students’ bank balances.
Elsewhere, Bethan Phillips bloged about the importance of being open about mental illness to coincide with University Mental Health & Wellbeing Day and the University of Westminster Students' Union's Rianne Gordon got snap-happy for this week's 'Day In The Life'.
Last but not least, we announced Simon Blake as our new Chief Executive. Simon joins us from Brook, the UK's largest young people's sexual health charity, where he was also Chief Executive and will take up the position from 5 May.
