We celebrate our talented students at Students' Union Awards 2017

May 19, 2017

Earlier this month, the  Students’ Union hosted their Annual Awards 2017 event at Victoria Warehouse. The event was particularly special this year as we're celebrating our 50th anniversary. 

Senior management joined over 300 students to celebrate the achievements of Salford students over the year. We were also delighted to welcome back to Salford, seven former Presidents of the Students’ Union, who joined our Business and Law Officer Rose Angelova, Arts and Media Officer Adeyinka Adebayo and the current President-elect Zamzam Ibrahim to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary year and to each present an award.

The evening started with a drinks reception, followed by a delicious three-course meal, with live performers, before everyone headed off to the after-party at Viva nightclub at the end of the evening.

Our awards ceremony was hosted by Marina Hristova, President in 2015-16.
