Just a selection of #hellocolin tweets aimed at Cardiff’s Vice Chancellor about the UCU strikes
There was even a Caterpillar cake
The last few weeks have seen strikes taking place with students in support. Today saw a Q&A session take place with Cardiff University's Vice Chancellor Colin Riordan and it's safe to say the reactions of student and staff did not disappoint.
Here is a compilation of the top tweets from the trend #HelloColin.
