Congratulations to the winner of the Get Involved Prize Draw, Abba Bako!
There are hundreds of volunteers who work alongside the Students Union in a vast number of different roles. Visit the Student’ Union website, to find out more about the volunteering opportunities, both on and off campus.
Abba is a Students Union Ambassador, President of the Nigerian Society and was involved in a lot of events during Freshers Week, this is what he has to say about his experience:
I believe I have experienced a lot and met loads of people, but by far the best experience is the pleasure of helping someone with something as little as directions or help regarding Students’ Union events. Over the weeks I have met people I don't even properly recognize. They mostly say "ohhh, Hi I remember you from Freshers week". So basically the whole experience has been a blast!!!
The Students' Union runs a regular prize draw to reward students who give up their time to be a part of making student life better.
