Student President Testimonial

Coming to LUSoM means being surrounded by maths everyday! This has enabled us to create a community built around pursuing maths but more importantly, a community built on a love for maths. It has also given me the opportunity to do everything from most recently a trip to Geneva to see CERN, every maths competition you can think of, university level lectures, trips to Lancaster University and most importantly our table tennis table and whiteboards!
