Welcome, everyone new to Swinburne, and welcome back to those returning for another year!  As your 2018 Student Union President, I want to work with more students than ever to ensure that we have the most active and inclusive year with the Union yet.

The Swinburne Student Union (SSU) run your student bar: the Hammer & Swine, free breakfast, weekly BBQs, and the cheapest printing on campus.  In 2018, we hope to grow the union through expanding volunteering opportunities for students, and working even closer with clubs to provide a vibrant culture here on campus. Head over to our Facebook page for updates on new services and all of the years events.

The SSU is Swinburne’s only independent, student-run representation, welfare and events service.  As your student union, we aim to improve the experience of all students on campus, both in education, and campus culture.  We are always interested to hear what you have to say about the union, and uni in general. If you have any ideas on how we can make your uni experience a better one, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

If you’d like to get even more involved this year, the SSU run a large volunteers program, with opportunities to get involved in all of our services and events.  Our collectives provide another great opportunity to get involved with like-minded students.  And if you have any time free after all that, between study and part time work, definitely join a club or three – or start your own!

Best of luck with the year ahead, and I encourage all students to get involved as much as you can.
