2022-23 Term 3 Impact Report
There is always lots going on at the SU in Term 3, as BUCS sports tournaments draw to a close, awards are distributed to recognise outstanding performance in Clubs, Societies and Student Voice & Impact, and we do our best to support students during the challenges of exams.
On top of this, we had democratic processes including the Summer Elections and All Student Vote, a wide variety of student and officer-led campaign activity, and our venues and outlets were as busy as ever making sure you had great places to go with friends to enjoy the best value food, drink and events on campus.
