Explain your idea further

The comments from your website below reflect the feelings of a lot of final year students

“Having a Graduation Ball, like previous years, held at the Union with different tents including fun activities such as Dodgems, makes students feel appreciated and proud to be a part of the University of Portsmouth. It's something that cannot be experienced throughout their years at university, making it memorable and different. Attending Astoria is a weekly event for most students. Having a Graduation Party that costs £8 just for a night out in Astoria will not give students the same experience of a Graduation Ball, from face value it just seems as though we are paying a higher price for a standard night out, with entry usually just being £5 for Astoria. This then means this is a waste of money, Graduation Ball was higher priced because of what it offers which you would not experience on any other night”.

The student union’s decision to cancel the official Graduation Ball and to have the two planned events has diminished the true meaning of the Graduation Ball for the current final year students. Students can go clubbing at any time they want to and don’t need an organised event to just go clubbing.  

We are requesting the re-reinstatement of our official Graduation Ball.


How would your idea benefit students?

Having a Graduation Ball, like previous years, held at the Union with different tents including fun activities such as Dodgems, makes students feel appreciated and proud to be a part of the University of Portsmouth.

How could your idea be implemented?

It is not too late to reinstate the Graduation Ball, I am sure the student union have the capability to change the bookings they have made and to re organise the event to take place at the time and date it has previously been held on.
