The Students’ Association is here to support its students members through a variety of services. Whether you need a kick-start to your morning, a trained volunteer to talk to or a safe walk to your destination, SAMU has you covered.
SAMU understands it’s hard to operate on an empty stomach. To ensure students have the sustenance they need to start their day, SAMU’s Breakfast Club offers a healthy breakfast for participating students on a semi-monthly basis.
