Nightline Awareness Week

By CGordon 13 Nov 2020

GU Nightline, an anonymous and confidential student run listening service and for Nightline Awareness Week (beginning 16th November 2020) they've organised a series of great events to get involved with.

Nightline Awareness Week Events

Wall of Kindness:

For the duration of the week, Nightline are taking submissions over social media of kind things people wish to share. They have a wall allocated in the library (3rd floor across from the elevators) and their volunteers will (socially distanced) put up post-it notes of the submissions!

Active Listening Workshop:

They’ll also be running an Active Listening Workshop on Wednesday 18th at 7PM. It focuses on the very basics of Active Listening, how to turn closed questions into open questions, challenging assumptions, and other advice such as how to build rapport and set boundaries. It’s an insight into some of the fundamentals our volunteers use on shifts, and is for anyone who wants to be a better listener and people who are interested in building positive relationships. It’s free and will be accessible over Zoom.

Online Yoga:

What is Nightline?

Nightline is an anonymous and confidential student run listening service available for students at the University of Glasgow. Our volunteers are trained in active listening and can provide emotional support for whatever is issues students may be facing while at university. Whether you’re worried about finances, going through a bad break up, or just need a friendly voice to be there for you, Nightline is here to listen, not to lecture.

What can Nightline help students with?

Nightline provides non-directive support. This means that we’ll never tell you what to do. Instead, we’ll be there to help you figure out your situation for yourself and provide empathetic support whenever you call us. Examples of reasons students call us includes academic and stress, feeling lonely, needing someone to talk to when walking home alone, to even personal and family issues. Nightline is there whenever you feel like you can’t talk to anyone else. We’ll never judge you. Instead, we’ll be there with you whenever you need us.

How can students access Nightline?

Nightline is open from 7pm-midnight Monday to Friday during term times. Whether you’re stressed about assignments, feeling the effects of covid or just want to talk to someone there’s always a friendly volunteer available to contact.
