The Student Activities Team hosted the annual Welcome Team Awards this week on Tuesday November 6th, kindly sponsored by UPP and Campus Services. The event brought together all the volunteers, staff supports and external stakeholders to thank and congratulate everyone for their dedication and efforts in the delivery of Welcome Team this year.
Welcome Team is a group of over 100 volunteers who dedicate their Freshers’ Week to helping students move and settle in, and are familiar face across campus during the week, you’ll most likely remember them by their bright pink t-shirts! The event celebrated the long hours, energy and enthusiasm the volunteers exhibited this year, with 28 awards being handed out, ranging from Spirit of the Team, Team Leaders of the year, and the triage award to 44 of our volunteers, as nominated by the volunteers themselves.
The night finished with a multitude of thank you’s to those integral to Welcome Team this year, including Students’ Guild Staff; students; Estate Patrol; Campus Services; the Accommodation Team; The Residence Life Team; Unlimited Church; Devon and Cornwall Police; Exeter City Council; and St John Ambulance. Without the dedication of all parties, Welcome Team could not have happened this year.
