Student Leaders elected at the University of Suffolk
This week, hundreds of students voted in the University of Suffolk Students’ Union elections.
This follows a week of campaigning by 27 candidates. Our turnout has been celebrated with giveaways including doughnuts on campus and a smoothie bike.
Students stood for election on a range of issues – amongst them to improve University feedback, parking, social events, nightlife safety, sustainability and well-being, with a range of ideas from a well-being post box and improvements to student services. All of the campaigns shared a common goal of giving the students the best possible experience while studying at the University of Suffolk. We have no doubt that these students, that came forward to represent their peers, will go on to achieve a great deal, regardless of the results.
Congratulations to the winners and a huge thank you to everyone who took part - whether as a candidate, campaigner or a voter.
