President - UQU 2022 Executive

Welcome back to another year at UQ! I hope your holiday was relaxing and you’re ready to get back into it with a renewed drive to save your GPA.

My name is Em and I’m your elected Union President for 2022.

Every aspect of UQU is overseen by your fellow students who you elect every year. So, you can rest easy knowing that you can approach us whenever you need support, and we will know exactly what you are going through. I encourage you to pop by my office in the UQU complex or shoot me an email if you need any assistance.

You are already a member of the union by virtue of being a UQ students and can access the majority of our services for no cost!

If this is your first-ever semester at UQ then you can take a sigh of relief that you’ve picked the right place. I could go on and on about UQ’s various admirable awards and placement in global rankings but what truly sets us apart is the people. So, in case you are finding it all a bit daunting, I have put together a list of my top tips for getting the most out of your student experience.

1. Join a few clubs and societies!

This is hands down the best way to make friends and find like-minded people while you’re here. There are over 200 different clubs to choose from so find one or five that spark your interest.

2. Take some time to explore your campus!

At St. Lucia find the Magic Harp, Pitch Drop experiment, the 1974 flood markers and Brisbane’s 3rd best pizza.

3. Finally, take advantage of your student union
