Welcome to Loughborough Freshers 2016!

            
 

"Firstly, congratulations on your results and welcome to the Loughborough family! I'm Jonathan Ako, your Union President here at LSU. We thrive on being the driving force behind the UK's best student experience and hope you will agree!

The entire Loughborough Executive team at the Union are here to provide you with the activities and chances to embrace the University experience and ensure you leave the university having gained life skills whilst having the time of your life. 

One thing that every Loughborough student will tell you is to get stuck in as much as possible during your time here! There is such a variety of amazing experiences available here at LSU to make your experience more than your course. From volunteering in the local community with Action, to fundraising to trek through Peru with Rag, to taking part in a 'My Lifestyle' Sport Taster session, to joining Welfare and Diversity and finally, we even have our own radio station in Media. We are here to ensure you have the time of your life either through one of our fantastic and diverse nights out, be becoming part of a society and AU Club or simply chilling with your friends. There really is something for everyone! Finally, we hope all of what we do gives you fundamental skills to enhance your future prospects.

My advice would be to do everything you've ever wanted to and embrace every opportunity Loughborough gives you. If you have any questions during your time here, then make sure to get in contact with me at president@lsu.co.uk or pop into the office upstairs in the Union."
