Firstly, lets take a moment to recognise how amazing you all are for finishing your degree during Covid-19, well done!
As a Students' Union, you'd usually be able to find us at Trentham Gardens or Spode Hall handing out free #ProudToBeStaffs boxes with special voucher inside to celebrate your next return to campus, however, as we can't be with you this year, we'd like to offer something special to the Class of 2020 - simply drop us an email at email@example.com when you next visit the Stoke campus and we'll arrange something for you!

How can I help students that are continuing their studies?
Alumni can help students by sharing their experiences, giving their top tips on what they would tell themselves as a newbie.
should they join? Should they even join one?
