OUSA is a multi-million dollar organisation with one overarching aim: to make the student experience at Otago University the best it possibly can be. From protesting against fee increases and occupying the Clocktower in the 1990's, to successfully pushing for the rebuild of Student Health and protecting the Hyde Street tradition, OUSA has always put students first.
