    I wouldn't say there is anything particularly bad about our students union, but i guess it does have more competition with the campus being in a city centre, a number of Universities are out in the sticks and their unions have to offer far more services.

    Additionally, we are building a brand new union with the aim of opening in 2017: http://www.aston.ac.uk/union/about/the-new-building/

    Where do I start?

    The union is run by up their own arse idiots.

    Everything is geared towards drinking only.

    The views they take are overly politically correct.

    There aren't that many events and those that they do have are of a low standard.

    Pretty much everyone just goes out in the city centre because of this.

    The building is awful and only about half the size needed for freshers week.

    They have aston aunties (usually second/third year students) who pressurise freshers into drinking games etc instead of letting people mix and make friends.......

    I could go on all day it is truly **** I don't care what the uni rep in this thread says.
