Great lakes University Students’ Association (GLUKSO) is the organisation that represents the students interests. The aim is to provide a body that students can identify with, feel a commitment to and be proud of.
These are student volunteers who represent the views of their fellow students. They bridge the entire student fraternity and the management and give feedback to the University on the services offered and help to effect change and ensure quality education and services around campus. They are voted in by their fellow students through elections conducted on annually. They work closely with the University management to find out the main issues affecting students and work together to address them.
