This year, her campaign revolves around Better Bars, Better campus and Better SU. She intends to transform the SU to "focus on issues relevant to you". She intends to create an app "that will make it easier for students to connect with societies and events"

He promises that "whatever you need done, you know I will do my best to try to get your point across as soon as possible."
"Join the fight for free education"
Mick intends to "make Sussex an exemplary University in the struggle for free education". His plan is twofold, as he believes the University needs "radical change in the priorities of the Student Union and effective pressure to the university for the realisation of our remands."

His manifesto pledges to address "issues of affordability of both tuition, rent and campus services, diversity on campus, innovation and improvement of current resources and also opportunity for students within the SU".
