Tomorrow, Union President Ben Franklin will be using Tap, Choose, Change to decide whether or not to keep the Grad Ball in its current format, or open it up to ‘Summer Ball’ open to all students.
The decision will be informative ‘not decisive’ and there will be a committee of students to make a final decision.
Union President Ben Franklin said:
I just want to get a feel for student demand before any decisions are made, and this seems like the best way to start the ball rolling and putting Grad Ball in people’s minds.This isn’t the be and end all of student consultation on Grad Ball, soon we’ll be organising a committee to widen participation in organising the event and sending out a survey on what you want Grad Ball (/Summer Ball) to be. Keep your eyes peeled, or add this account as a friend if you want to know when the opportunity arises.
Wessex Scene will keep you updated as this story develops.
