Over the course of the last year we have realised just how many truly incredible things students do. Now it's the end of our term of office and we just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone that has been a part of this year.
To students, keep being incredible. Keep challenging the Union to do the best that it can for you. Please remember that more things get sorted at York when you have an open conversation with the University, rather than condemning them before you've heard their side. YUSU can help to facilitate those conversations so don't be afraid to ask.
To the University, over the last year we have again and again seen that you truly do care about the views of students and will try to enact change they want to see - thank you. There's still some way to go, but you're a solid 7/10 on the way to it.
To YUSU staff, you put in a truly incredible amount of work and dedication to the Union. It quite simply would not function without you so thank you so much for that.
Good luck to the fabulous 2017/18 sabb team: Alex, Mikey, Laura, Mia and JP; we have every faith that you will take YUSU from strength to strength.
We are so proud to have served as your sabbatical team over the last year. Please keep doing you and remember, as Jo Cox said: 'we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than the things that divide us.'
So much York love,
Over and out from your 2016/17 team xx
