Why become a student leader?
Have you ever wanted to lead a society, sports club or community? Maybe you love dreaming up glamorous events…
Maybe you’re passionate about getting people together to do something fun…
Or maybe you just want to be a BNOC (Big Name on Campus).
No matter the reason, helping to run a student group is an exciting, rewarding and downright fun way to spend your time.
Here's some testimonials from your fellow students:
"Being a student leader and part of a society is such a rewarding experience! Getting to associate with like-minded individuals who enjoy the same things you do is such a necessary part of our wellbeing, especially in regards to this difficult year.
As a student leader, you are able to take into account every members' viewpoint and successfully implement them into the society, making sure that it is a community where everyone feels heard and welcome!
I think this year, when it comes to communication with societies and clubs, the SU has been the most effective it has during my three years of study at Goldsmiths.
I believe the SU has given great support to students, especially considering the present circumstances of the pandemic!"

"During this year of lockdowns, most students have felt extremely socially isolated.
Taking part in societies has been one of the best ways to connect with other students this year and the support and infrastructure which the Students' Union provides is invaluable in helping societies like ours to function and provide that community for those who need it.
As a society leader I've been able to work really productively with our SU staff to provide the best possible experience for our society members this year, and at the same time also learned a huge amount from working with them."
