What is the Community Zone?
Community Zone is made up of five Part Time Officers and led by the full time
VP and together they ensure
that every student feels that Surrey is their home away from home. This
involves taking the lead on: all things Volunteering and Fundraising (referred
to as RAG); organising the big showcase events; the entertainment and social
activities on campus; ensuring there is a harmonious relationship with the students
and the wider Guildford residents.
Another key area for the Community Zone is
responsible for is ensuring that the University and the Student Body has
sustainability at the heart of all activities.
My name is Adesuwa, I’m a final year Business Management MBus student and I’m
your RAG Chair for the academic year 2020/21.
year, I want to increase the awareness of RAG by introducing RAG
Representatives & RAG spotlight which will highlight clubs and societies
who raised most amount of money each month.
will be loads of different opportunities throughout the year to meet other
clubs & societies so that we can create a sense of community for Raising
and Giving within Guildford.

Hey there! My name's Nathaniel (Nat) - I'm a final year BSc (Hons) Business Management with Marketing student and I sit on the Union Executive this year as the Community Zone's Officer.
My priorities this year are: more events and entertainment, more RAG and sustainability, and more widening outreach and participation. For all students during academic terms and holidays.
This year will have challenges. However, your Union and its Community Zone are optimistic and beyond excited to work to ensure that you have the best possible experiences here at Surrey!

As part of the ‘Surrey at Home’ campaign, the Community Zone worked with the School of Literature and Languages and Surrey Lit Soc to encourage students to write poems about their experiences staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Students submitted reflecting and inspiring poems to the campaign. The Community Zone also encouraged students to submit photos documenting unique moments during the lockdown.
An online poetry workshop with the Young People’s Laureate for London, Theresa Lola, was also held with the participants of the campaign. The workshop was an opportunity for students to learn to express their experiences creatively. The result is a collection of different student’s experiences of lockdown in poetry and photography form.

A message to our Class of 2020:
The Class of 2020 reminisce about their time and wonderful experiences at University and express what they will miss the most. As the current circumstances have prevented final years from enjoying their last few months being Surrey students, and postponed the summer graduation until 2021, they share a heart warming, supportive and powerful message to all students, to never lose hope... this is NOT a goodbye, this is a see you soon💙 #ForeverSurrey #TogetherAtHome #SurreyAtHome
