    Digby Stuart Student Common Room!

      One of my wishes as President is to create an efficient space for Digby students to socialise in. The Digby College Kitchen and Diner do not suit the needs of the general student population in terms of socialising, activities, and promotion of those. Whiteland's have their bar/café space with game activities, Southland's have the reef (with ping pong tables, computers, etc), and Froebel has their College Kitchen/Computer room & The Union which is a significantly larger space than the Digby College Kitchen and designed to serve as a social space as opposed to an extension of the cafeteria for commuter students. Being the largest college, we need a space much like the other colleges possess, if not more so due to our large student population of roughly 2000 students. I have been in contact with the Estates Team for 6 months now regarding this matter and have been informed that there simply isn't space in the College to provide this service at this time - however, when there is a demand, the supply must be met. If there is no space - space needs to be made. I am hoping that by creating this petition, I can demonstrate to Estates and others involved the real importance of having a Common Room for students and that this is something that students want and need. So please upvote this idea if you would finally like a space to socialise in just like all the other Colleges have.
