Questions & Answers Ask me a Question

What does SUSU mean to you? If you were to define its values in 5 words, what would they be?

To me SUSU is a much needed element of my university life. Through societies, sports, representation and support. It is where I have met the kindest and most supportive people in my life today. For many SUSU is distraction from academic stress, a way to meet people that understand them in a way no one else can or a connection to things that are important to them. SUSU is a way to learn new things, meet new people and find yourself. In 5 words the values that come to mind are: Advocacy Support Connection Diversity Inclusivity
