LeadLUU 2022: What’s it like running in LeadLUU? We speak to two former candidates

With the LeadLUU election being such a big deal in our campus calendar, it’s clear that running as a candidate is a major undertaking. From creating your candidate statement, to actively campaigning and taking part in events across campus, there’s plenty involved in running – but we hear every year that it’s a massively rewarding experience too, even from candidates who didn’t come out victorious.
