    Hey,

    So I have accepted my place on the Air Transport Management course and I am now very excited to get to Loughborough and get started on it.

    However, I am also wanting to potentially get involved with the SU and some of its societies. Unfortunately I don't really know where to start with getting involved and what kind of involvement the SU can offer me.

    If you are a current student and possibly point me in the right direction or give some advice on what I can expect with regards to the SU then that would be fantastic!

    If you look on the LSU website (Potally_Tissed linked to it) that'll give you an idea of some of the societies/AU clubs you can join. As well as that, every year in the first term the union puts on a Societies Bazaar and AU Bazaar where you can go down and see what they're all about and meet some of the committee.

    There's a lot to choose from in the societies federation and the AU.

    Yeah, they'll usually try get a few people to work at the union (bar work, bouncers, etc.) at the start of the year and sometimes intermittently during term time. I've got a couple mates who work there, one on the bars and one on security and I think it pays about £6/hour give or take.

    If you want to get involved in the academic side there are quite a few positions you can run for, department reps, programme presidents etc. All great on the CV and good to be involved with.
