Congratulations from your president

Congratulations! From everyone here at Sheffield Students' Union, we wish you a lovely time at your graduation. Make sure you take the time to reflect on how far you've come since you first arrived in Sheffield, you should be incredibly proud of everything you've achieved.

I hope your time studying at the University of Sheffield was a happy one, and that you'll be able to carry what you learned here and the experiences you had with you on the next step of your journey. Sheffield is a special place, and no matter where you end up, it'll always stick with you. The SU really is a family, so make sure you stay in touch!

Well done again, have a fantastic day!
