*clears throat for karaoke*
There'll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
If I lose you, sunlight
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same if you walk away
 Every day it will rain 

Unfortunately, my singing couldn’t keep the sun with us anymore... but hey ho!
Let’s just brighten everyone’s day up with my cool intro.
I hope you all are excited, because boy! I have some news for you.
Nominations for SU officers are closed, which means you'll soon get to decide who will be your new president!

As a side note, the weather changes on us all the time. Let’s make sure we are taking honey and lemon for those sniffles and sore throats! (I hate them, but my mum says it’s good for you)...

 Lots of love from Amna xoxo

BEST MONTH EVER FOR CLUBS AND SOCS!

February 2019 has turned out to be one of the most successful months in the history of Aston Students’ Union. Between them, five Aston clubs and societies have achieved nine individual and collective awards, medals, trophies, and nominations.

Boxing - Gold medal
Taekwon-Do - 1 x Gold, 2 x Silver and 1 x Bronze
Snow - Bronze medal and 2nd Place League Trophy
