UG student body launches website

A new website has been launched on September 20 with the goal of improving the college experience of the University of Guyana’s (UG) more than 8,000 students.
This website is entirely funded by the University of Guyana Students Society (UGSS), and its launch is in keeping with the UGSS promise to enhance student life in a variety of ways.
The website represents the fulfillment of the fifth and final promise made by the UGSS Council upon its assumption of office, according to UGSS President Shaquawn Gill, who gave the keynote address during the unveiling of the website at the university’s campus at Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown.
UG Registrar Dr. Nigel Gravesande also praised and supported the website, calling it the technical breakthrough necessary for enhancing student life.
The website has a student complaint page that offers a simple emailing mechanism so students can contact their faculty representatives about problems. On the student life page can be found blogs, UGSS discounts, success stories, and the various university groups. Students can view the academic calendar, GTT’s UG student plan, and information on visa applications on the document page. The UGSS background, administrative body, faculty representative, and campus tour are also available at uogss.com
Last month, the UGSS, in collaboration with GTT, launched a smartphone plan specifically designed to suit the needs of the university’s thousands of students enrolled at both of its campuses. This plan, which costs only $3,750, offers a range of benefits and services tailored to meet the needs of students. Among those are: 75 GB monthly data, unlimited social media messaging, unlimited GTT minutes, and unlimited texts. This plan normally costs $7,500.
The UGSS is a student-run organisation that represents the student body at the University of Guyana. It was established in 1973 to allow students of the University to formally voice their desires. The University of Guyana Students’ Society is intended to foster and promote social and cultural activities among students, to attend to the welfare of any member of the student body, and to provide representation of the concrete opinion of the students of the University.
The Students’ Society has been tasked to help develop coherent values and ethical standards, forge educational partnerships, and build supportive and inclusive communities across the two campuses and four centres of the Institute of Distance and Continuing Education. (G1)
