MISHAN'S FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THE SU

“I decided to stand for President as I had previously have been involved with the SU as a Course Rep and Student Voice Representative (SVR). I really enjoy the social and networking aspect of the SU, it brings students together, regardless of their background. The best thing for me is meeting new faces and hearing everyone's stories.
