It’s challenging not to delve into the intricate details of each club’s accomplishments when we reflect on the incredible achievements of our UNE Life Clubs & Societies in 2023.
One standout moment, among many, occurred in January when the UNE Scuba & Snorkelling Club, in a collaborative effort with the UNE Zoology Society, embarked on a remarkable expedition to Coffs Harbour. Their mission: the Coffs Harbour Sea Slug Census.
This undertaking resulted in the identification of an astounding 135 distinct sea slug species, with an impressive 32 of them being recognized for the very first time.
Such dedication and excellence didn’t go unnoticed. At the 2023 Student Awards Night, this remarkable event was bestowed with the inaugural Collaborative Event of the Year award. This recognition not only highlights the outstanding achievements of our students but also underscores the spirit of cooperation and partnership that thrives within our club community. It is a testament to the passion, expertise, and determination that our students bring to every endeavour, showcasing the depth of talent and commitment that defines UNE Life Clubs & Societies.
Another exceptional moment of recognition unfolded at the 2023 Australian Law Students’ Association (ALSA) conference, where the UNE Law Students Society delivered an impressive presentation, underscoring the manifold benefits of managing their club in the online realm.
Their unswerving dedication and outstanding achievements throughout the year resulted in the receipt of three prestigious accolades at the 2023 ALSA Awards Night. Among these honours, the club’s president, Lara Glasson, was honoured as the Female Law Student of the Year, while the Outstanding Advocacy Award was bestowed upon Amy Danek, the club’s Social Media Officer. Furthermore, the entire club was presented with the highly coveted ALSA Spirit of Leadership award.
These accomplishments, alongside numerous others, culminated in the team proudly receiving a record-breaking total of nine awards at this year’s Student Awards Night. This remarkable achievement not only reflects their excellence but also underscores the collective spirit of leadership, dedication, and success that pervades the UNE Law Students Society.
Our annual Student Awards Night is a celebration of the outstanding work, by UNE Life Clubs and Societies, TuneFM, and exceptional UNE students throughout the year.
It’s a night of fun, performances, delicious food, and awards giving as we recognise the achievements of our students.

While the past two years have been dedicated to reevaluating strategies and resources, and providing club executives with a solid foundation, in 2024, we aspire to incorporate the insights and feedback received from clubs into a robust training system that empowers all executives to excel in their roles, as well as continuing to enhance the student experience at UNE.
Presently, the Student Programs Coordinator role involves on-the-job learning. However, as we prepare for the transition at the end of 2024, our goal is to future-proof the position.
