Who is in SUA?

Events are chosen, planned, and carried out completely by KU students. Anyone is welcome to join our student group. Our students manage budgets, create marketing plans, negotiate offer letters and contracts, manage volunteers, assess our events, and get real-world experience. You can get involved as a simple event volunteer or help hands-on with the planning process.
