Student Poll Results

Every week, we at SUBU run a token box in the Student Shop to get your feedback on topical student issues, in hopes that we can work with BU to improve your student experience. 

Last year as a result of the token box: BU is developing ideas for more ‘green spaces’ on campus; SUBU developed principles for assessed group work; and there’s more money for SUBU Advice to support students in financial emergencies!
