SAVE OUR STREETLIGHTS (SOS)
The Council’s plans to switch off Exeter's streetlights after minimal consultation with the public is not just a huge concern for safety-conscious students, but the residents of Exeter City as a whole. This is why The Guild are making it our number one priority to prevent any such reckless plans. Under the council’s plans, many routes that students use on a regular basis will become unlit at night. This will only lead to an increase in the unease and anxiety felt amongst members of the student and local community as they travel at night, but most importantly, put them at a higher risk of becoming victims of crime.
Students will be able to support the campaign by sharing it with their friends and signing an upcoming petition, as well as contacting the Council themselves and making sure their voice is heard.

Children in Need
With Exeter being chosen as this year’s lead city for Children in Need, and with parts of the evening’s events being broadcast from The Forum itself, there has never been a better time for students to raise money for the cause.
Diversity Week presents all students with a great opportunity to celebrate all the many different nationalities and cultures shared on campus. As well as hosting a whole range of events for students to enjoy, the week also aims to also raise awareness amongst international students of how The Guild and The International Students’ Council (ISC) can help them during their time in Exeter.
Meet your Neighbour
This year Grace Hopper, The Guild VP for Welfare and Community, is encouraging students to reach out to those who live on their street and build relationships with their neighbours, whether they are part of the student or local community.
