To the class of 2020...

So you’re coming to the end of your journey at Sheffield Hallam University. And what a ride it's been. Most students experience lots of highs and a few lows on their university adventure. We hope you have enjoyed many more highs and that you are leaving Sheffield with amazing memories, lifelong friends and an enthusiasm for starting the next exciting chapter of your life.

We know that lots of you have been involved with your Students’ Union. You’ve made an incredible impact on your community through volunteering, met new friends through being part of a society and learnt new skills by attending training sessions. You’ve stood up for other students by being a student rep or a student officer, and you’ve told us who you wanted to represent you in our student elections. You’ve visited our Student Advice Centre service by using our online self-help resources and spoke to our advisers about things you’ve needed support with on University life. You’ve enjoyed food and drinks in Coffee Union and Hideout, and bought your Hallam merch from The Stall. You’ve even joined our team by taking on a student staff role! You’ve done it all.

Due to COVID-19, you’ve been unable to come into The HUBS and do the things you enjoy lately. To make sure that we have continued to support you, we’ve provided you with an online ‘Corona Community’, so that you’ve still been able to get involved with your SU. We have also recently helped to launch the Hallam Safety Net campaign for students, which ensures that the grades you achieved before COVID-19 cannot fall below your average mark.

Your SU is run by students for students which means that YOU have been at the heart of everything we do. From all of us at Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union, we want to thank you for the amazing work you’ve done and we wish you the best of luck for the future.


From your SHSU staff
