Bendigo / Week 2 means more great stuff from those legends at the BSA

Semester is in full swing, and so is the BSA events calendar.

We’ve got your weekly dose of BSA news right here.

Check out what’s on offer!

Student Forum – A united Student Association

The Bendigo Student Association is joining forces with La Trobe Student Union and Wodonga Student Association to create one, big united Student Association as of January 2021.

We want to talk with Bendigo students about the great opportunities and the possible challenges that this change will bring.

Join us on the SU floor on Thursday 12 March, 12.00-2.00pm, to take part in an open student forum.

While you’re there, grab a free feed and let us know what you want from your future student association.

BSA Free Brekkies are back – and everyone’s invited

Get your BSA Free Breakfasts every fortnight during the semester, with the first taking place on Wednesday 11 March 2020 at 8:30am.

We’ll be serving:

  • cereal & variety of milks (soy, almond, lactose free, diary)
  • yoghurt
  • fresh fruit
  • all kinds of toast
  • crumpets, muffins and more!

Come on down to the Student Kitchenette and enjoy an early morning meal on us!

BSA Cup Library

Help save the planet by re-using cups.

It’s way better than adding to landfill – and way better than adding to the recycling burden.

Say no to a paper cup and use our Cup Library instead! Just borrow a cup from the Student Kitchenette.

Use it. Wash it. Put it back.

BSA Student Legal Service

The BSA Student Legal Service is open every Thursday during semester and is here to help you with your legal problems.

You can drop in for free and confidential assistance between 10.00am and 2.00pm.

Justice of the Peace service is also available, so you can get your important documents certified!

Ask for directions at the BSA Info Desk.

Financial Counselling Service

Money worries? Don’t despair, you can get help on campus.

The BSA’s free Financial Counselling Service will help you put together a plan and save you stress.

Drop in from 10.00am until 4.00pm on Wednesdays during semesters.

Get directions at the BSA Info Desk.

BSA Advocacy Service (We can help with Uni issues)

The BSA’s student advocate is Michelle Barton. Michelle’s role is to help students find the best solution for their issues.

You can set up a face-to-face meeting with our advocate who can listen to your problem and work out the best course of action.

The advocate will know which policy or procedure is relevant and explain in simple terms what is likely to happen.

They can help you draft letters to the University, complete forms or attend meetings with you and University staff to ensure you are treated fairly. 

This is a free service open to all La Trobe Bendigo students.

You don’t have to be a BSA member to use it.
