Free Doughnotts for students with a valid vote confirmation. Please show us your voting confirmation on your mobile phone in order to get a free doughnut from the Voting Station in the SU Square (Vegan friendly options available).


50 students can receive a ticket to the Women's and Men's Rugby Varsity match on Thursday 19 March. Once we hit this milestone, students who have proof of voting can collect a Varsity ticket from the SU as soon as the tickets become available. Please note: this is a first come, first serve prize so keep an eye on the live stats and vote-o-meters in the SU to find out when we hit 1000 votes.

Inflatable bungee run on the Fielding Johnson Lawn during Term 3. Challenge your mates to a duel and try and set a personal best record throughout the day - that should help you de-stress during the exam period.


Goats for votes - we'll bring a petting zoo on campus.  We've done it before and often get asked when we'll be doing it again. If you help us reach 2,500 votes the answer will be SOON!


Rodeo Bull - well we say bull but we might settle for a surfboard or snowboard - or perhaps even a sheep! We're still undecided. But if your votes help us reach the 3,000 vote milestone, we'll bring one on to campus in Term 3 and will even let you choose via social media.
