#WeAreSolent competition (free stuff!)

Whether you just started your first year, are nearing the end of your time here at Solent, or are a member of our ever-growing graduate network – you have all played a part in making our campus the creative, collaborative and inclusive place that it is today.

With this in mind, Southampton Solent University and Solent Students’ Union have teamed up to spread a little joy (free stuff!) and get people talking about all the things our students and staff love about life here at Solent.

So what is #WeAreSolent?

Everyone has a favourite memory from University. It could be an eye-opening lecture that you’ll never forget, the thrill of seeing others enjoy your work, or an event that went down in Solent social history – if you thought it was great, we want to hear about it.

Simply share your pictures, videos or thoughts with @solentofficial using the hashtag #WeAreSolent to be in with a chance of winning one of three fantastic weekly prizes.

Southampton Solent University hoodies (£29.99), t-shirts (£9.99) and meal vouchers are all up for grabs, with new winners being announced each week between now and the beginning of April.

How to enter…

To enter the competition you will need to follow these simple steps:

1. Think of something you love about Southampton Solent. Don’t forget to add photos or videos if you can!

2. Go to Twitter and write your tweet – make sure it’s within the 140 character limit.

3. Make sure you add #WeAreSolent to the tweet – if you don’t you won’t be able to win a prize!

4. If you have space, tag @solentofficial in the tweet.

5. Make sure you follow @solentofficial so we can contact you if you’re one of the winners!

What are the judges looking for?

We’ll be looking out for any tweets that really capture what it is to be a Southampton Solent University student.

Tell us about your achievements, show us your creativity, or simply tell us what you like about being here on campus – the choice is yours.

And remember, we aren’t looking for stories about you and your drinking buddies!

The winners…

The winners will be announced every week via Twitter – remember to follow the @solentofficial account so we can direct message you if you’ve won.

Over the next few months we will be sharing the tweets that you send to us. It’s important to remember that by entering the competition, you agree to let Southampton Solent University use your name and photograph in future publicity.

Good luck!
