#mySUSU

In General

It’s been a busy time at #YourSUSU. From successfully campaigning for a 24 hour library, more Safety Buses running (with live tracking), to the opening of The Hub and creation of our Peer Support system, we’ve worked hard with some incredibly selfless and dedicated students to make your membership of SUSU really memorable.
