Joining the student union and being active in student life was definitely my best decision during my time at the university. Besides the great discounts and fun events, the best thing about the union is the sense of community it brings. Always having someone to talk to, something to do, and something to look forward to during the toughest times of studying is invaluable. Once you attend an event, it's hard to stop. There's a special atmosphere, a community where everyone is accepted, and where you're guaranteed to find friends for life. So, make your best choice and join the student union!
