Sophie: Hi, I'm Sophie.

Matt: And I'm Matt. And we're your Resident Life Coordinators, here on campus.

Sophie: Based on our student support we're a really good starting point if you have any questions or concerns regarding just about anything.

Matt: If you take just one thing from this video, let it be this, we're here to support you. This may be concern about a flatmate. It may be you need help finding a society.

Sophie: There are no silly questions. And everything that you say will be handled, non judgmentally and in confidence. I've been at Marjon since 2014. I've lived in halls, I've lived in the village and now I'm doing a master's here as well as this job.

Matt: I graduated from Bournemouth university in 2014. And I'm studying to be a counsellor part-time.

Sophie: Throughout the year we'll be doing social events and would love your input.

Matt: These will be subsidized by the university to both on and off the campus. So please get involved and be creative.

Sophie: Keep an eye out for emails, social media, and posts on the community app. To contact us directly about anything big or small, then use our emails.

Matt: We look forward to seeing you around campus.

Sophie: See you soon.
