A Note from the President
Welcome to the Easter term of the Durham Union, it is my pleasure to present you an exciting term card. We have an excellent range of speakers from all walks of life. They will be talking to us on a wide variety of subjects, from conducting an orchestra to planning a city. All of our guests have fascinating and enthralling careers. Thanks to the new forms of technology, we are able to see and hear from speakers who would otherwise be unable to join us, such as those from the heat and warmth of El Salvador to the concrete jungle of New York.
Our Society is proud to champion free speech since 1842, providing a community that fosters ideas to improve the state of the world. As the oldest and largest society of the University. The Union is at the very heart of the Durham experience, especially during this challenging time. A place for students to exchange thoughts, grow and make friendships for life.
When I first joined the Union, I encountered a sense of community, a desire to listen to one another, a passion to go beyond what we are taught. These values make the Union such a special place not only in the University but also in our hearts. I hope that during this term you will find the Union a truly enriching experience..
TAs we are now coming out of the pandemic and the sun is shining, even in Durham. We are all looking forward to the possibility of enjoying a form of normality in the coming months. It will give me great pleasure during this extraordinary time to welcome and meet you at the Durham Union.
I would like to wish everyone of you a very safe and enjoyable rest of the academic year.
