A Note from the President

People say university is the best few years of your life but it is not a given. This university is about becoming who you want to be and finding what you believe in. You do this by making this city your home, throwing yourself into as many things as possible and making life-long friendships - whilst doing just enough studying to leave with a degree. To fully experience Durham, a Union membership is essential. As the oldest and largest student society in the city, we are at the heart of the University’s international reputation for excellence. With 21 Friday Night Debates, where the nation’s political leaders flock to our chamber to debate the issues of the day, 40 celebrity addresses from across pop culture, science and sport, 70 debate training sessions led by some of the best speakers in the world and 30 socials in Durham’s best venues and our very own bar at 24 North Bailey Club – there is always something going on. We are a democratic society made up of people like you who won’t stop trying to make student life better with these opportunities and even more - that’s why we have partnered with companies like Penguin, Billing Better, Revs, Players and the Cellar Door to make student life a little cheaper for our members. My time at Durham is near its end, and whilst I have some regrets, joining the Union isn’t one of them. I have made some incredible memories, got to see and meet public figures I never thought possible and have travelled Europe representing my city with some of my closest friends – it has shown me what I believe in and who I want to be, the true purpose of university. I cannot recommend it enough. Welcome to your new home,

Alastair Sledge Michaelmas President, 2019
