Our 350+ college and course reps asked you what you wanted to change, and they told the Uni. We also held an amazing Rep Conference to thank them all for their hard work this year!

Between out sports clubs, societies and campaigns, we raised over £20,000 for various charities this year!

Including SUSU Pride's Bingo Lingo, the Eisteddfod Rhyng-gol, the Student Radio Association Conference and the BUCS Western Conference Cup Finals.

17. We introduced free sanitary items

They're now available in our toilets and receptions on both campuses.

18. We gave you a voice

Most importantly, we gave you a platform to express your issues and opinions, and change the way the Union and Uni works because of our Students Forums. Students put forward a load of motions to be voted on by other students.
