Group of students standing together

23rd March 2018 - With the dust starting to settle from elections excitement, we've been delighted to hear that so many of you experienced your best voter turnouts, making use of real-time stats and voting on the App to keep engagement up and encourage members to get involved. Well done to everyone who works so hard at this time of year and congratulations to your new officer teams! The next topic might not be so exciting but it's something we should all be preparing for - GDPR. We will continue to post useful information and updates on our GDPR page and will soon be sending out your contract variation letters. Please look out for this letter arriving as it will need your urgent attention ahead of the May 2018 regulation changes.

Your website is a hub of information and opportunities to participate that many students rely upon to support their university and social lives - and so they expect that same feeling of immediacy from your site as they get from ASOS and Amazon.
