GUST’s Rectorial Elections Footage used by Russia Today

Uncategorized, February 25, 2014

GUST always makes sure to cover all the events that are important for the University of Glasgow and its students. The impact of this year’s rectorial elections, however, extends way beyond the campus. Edward Snowden, chosen by the students to represent them during the next three years, cannot leave Russia and therefore will be a non-working rector. GUST filmed the Rectorial Election results and our footage was used by Russia Today in their daytime programme. The video was also put on YouTube where it was viewed over 5,000 times in less than 24 hours.

 

GUST Ceilidh

Uncategorized, January 24, 2014

One of GUST’s annual socials is a Ceilidh. Makes sense, seeing as we’re THE Scottish station! Have a wee look at some photos from the event which was held in the Glasgow University Union on the 16th of January.

Freshers’ Week 2013

Behind the Scenes, November 5, 2013

The weather is getting worse and worse. Sunny (well… perhaps let’s use the word ‘pleasant’) September is now a thing of the past. Yes, this can only mean one thing – autumn is in its full swing and your coursework deadlines are probably close enough to send you in a state of panic. That being said, why not sit back and look fondly at the Freshers’ Week 2013: a time when we only had to debate on a choice of a post-QMU/GUU takeaway meal, not essay topics? GUST sure misses those times!

Monday

We joined the chanting and speeches at the Freshers’ Address.

At the GUU, we interviewed headliners We Were Promised Jetpacks and spoke to lots of lovely Freshers during Takeover which saw the entire building transformed into a club. Jameela Jamil also performed!

At the QMU, we caught up with Scott Mills and That Drummer That DJ who both played amazing sets for packed-out Qudos.

Tuesday

Day two of Freshers’ Week was even more intense than the first one! GUSTies were busy from early morning…

This time around we went to Around the World Party to try some amazing foods from different cultures, we caught up with Glasgow Uni Exec and headed to the QMU for their annual Freshers’ Ball.

Unfortunately Freshers’ Week had to come to an end, as all good things tend to.

Alicja and Tom managed to get their faces painted at QM’s UV Party.

It was definitely a fun-packed week and we just can’t wait for next year!
