Students' Union

The Suffolk New College Students’ Union is an organisation run by students for students who employ staff to run specific activities.

The Students’ Union plays an important part in representing your interests with College staff including Senior Managers. It also helps provide a wide range of services and activities on campus, including Rag Week and Freshers’ Week! The Students’ Union also negotiates special discounts with local shops and traders.

This Year’s President – Callum Walker-Glanville

“I’m very happy to be able to take on the role of President of the Students’Union for 2016/17. I have now been at the College studying for three years and have undertaken Music Tech, Uniformed Public Services and Games Design courses. During my time here I have learnt a lot about the College and now look forward to using that knowledge to help get the changes we want and need as students.

My main goal for this year is to promote the Union and increase student participation with the Union and provide students with opportunities and experiences. I would also like to carry on with the amazing fundraising work the Students’Union has been able to do in the past, which means many events and fun activities in and around the College.

This brings me to the part where I ask for your help, the students.I would like to recruit an Executive Committee for the year full of students looking to better the College and help voice the opinions and queries of their fellow students.In return you’ll gain many life and work related skills along with the chance to go on trips and bulk up your CV. If you are interested in this then don’t hesitate to contact me!”

The more involvement you and other students have with us the better. You may want to set up a lunch-time club or suggest ways to improve the College, whatever ideas you may have we want to hear about them, especially if they are quite unusual/crazy and you know it is something other students would like.
