The phrase we use is 'by the students, for the students'. Everything we do at LSU is driven by your wants and your needs so we are constantly looking at new ways of allowing you give your opinion on the running of the organisation. You may have received a few surveys from us and you are always welcome to email the Exec or pop into the office, but there are also specific groups and processes set up that allow you to have your say.
