We are bigger and better than ever before thanks to the dedication and passion of our amazing students. We continue to innovate and develop on previous years, proving that Loughborough really does offer the best student experience in the U.K.
STUDENTS INVOLVED IN SECTION ACTIVITIES
WELFARE & DIVERSITY
Some of those amazing experiences include:
The time that people have volunteered alongside myself for Label and in LSU Media has been fantastic, and the drive to improve and develop is key to every Loughborough experience. When hosting a journalism conference this year, our drive spread wider than Loughborough, and we were able to showcase our brilliant facilities and excellent campus to students from across the UK.Katie Wilson
OUR TROPHIES CABINET
Over the last few years I have found myself drawn more and more towards people who inspire me. This alone is the reason why I have spent so much of my 3 years at University in Loughborough Students’ Union. I have never met a group of people who donate so much of their free time to bettering the lives of others than within the four walls of LSU. The number of leadership opportunities available ensure that both extroverts and introverts have chances to develop themselves and the level of student passion is the reason we are number one for student experience. I am forever grateful for the opportunities that have been afforded to me, I have grown both personally and professionally and I will carry the experiences very close to my heart for the rest of my life.Charlie Dale

BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
We have been working with the University on plans to develop a radical, iconic and practical new Union Building that symbolises and facilitates the outstanding quality of work LSU achieves.
We have agreed to form a joint project team to develop proposals for designing and funding a world class student facility…
ENGAGE THE UNENGAGED
The heart of the LSU strategy is to reach out to those who are not engaged without alienating the students who love us.
Our Welfare and Diversity section continues to go from strength to strength, promoting positive health and wellbeing as well as providing under represented students with a voice and support platform…
Over my time here, I have always tried to put others before me and I think it is an incredible feeling watching a rep or a friend develop during their time at Loughborough. I guess there is something satisfying about watching someone grow, learn and develop as a person and for me, that sums up my Loughborough experience.Martin So
BEING THE EXPERTS ON OUR MEMBERS
The key to success in almost everything we do is really understanding our members and being able to communicate with them.
LSU continues to prioritise this work and we have made some excellent progress during last year, but much more is planned…
Being part of the AU has played a huge part in my life for the past 3 years; from being a member of 5 1st teams, coaching a 2nd team and being Social Secretary for Loughborough Students’ Dance Club, to being on the AU Executive as an Events Co-ordinator with such an amazing group of people. This is only a taster of what LSU has offered up for the student experience, I’ve personally also been involved in Rag, a few Action projects, worked alongside Media on multiple occasions, tried a couple of Societies, had two amazing jobs in the Marketing Department that have helped me no-end for my future career prospects, and met some of the most inspiring and caring people! Thank you for everything, LSU, you’re the best.Sarah Cockshott
