AGM Ideas – The Final Ranking

We had hundreds of you vote for over 30 ideas that were submitted by students to be considered for discussion at the AGM on Wednesday 14th May. It’s been great to see such a variety of topics brought forward and voted on by so many people.

Without further ado, here is the order of rankings. For those that are interested its calculated by net votes – the number of for votes minus the against votes.


1. Should SUSU stop charging for debit card use in its official outlets?
2. Should SUSU get a  kitten?
