"Welcome to USYD!
I’m Ricky Rangra and I’m the 2023 President of the Sydney University Business Society (SUBS), the official faculty society for the Business School.
SUBS is the largest society on campus with over 13,000 members and we’re so excited to welcome you into our family.
Over the years, we’ve worked hard to make SUBS the one-stop shop for everything you need in your university journey.
That could mean revamping your social life and coming to our first years camp, annual harbour cruise, end of semester parties, pub golf crawls or our ball gala at the end of the year. Feel free to put yourself out there and have the courage to form new friendships - you’ve got everything to gain and nothing to lose.
You could also bolster your professional CV and attend various events with our sponsors and alumni throughout the year, including High Achievers Breakfast, Happy Hour Hustle, our annual mentoring program and firm-specific stalls where companies bring Gelato Messina or Dunkin’ Donuts vans onto campus just to speak with you. Sponsors include top global investment banks, consulting firms, technology companies, FMCG companies and marketing firms.
Lastly, we also run interfaculty sports every week, where you can represent the Business School against your friends from law, arts, engineering, science in different sports like soccer, volleyball, touch footy and more, with bragging rights and an end of semester trophy on the line!
If you want to join the SUBS committee more specifically, we will launch applications on our Facebook page in late March for our various portfolios which include Operations, External Relations, Alumni and Internal Relations, Events, International Relations, Publications, Design, Social Media and Sport. I joined the committee 3 years ago and I’ve loved every second of it since.
If there’s one thing you should know about university, it’s that you get out of it what you put into it. It’s your training ground for the real world and it’s your domain to rule for the next 3 or more years. Take every opportunity that comes your way and enjoy the ride. It’s a roller coaster and it will have its highs and lows, but you’ll only realise how much you loved it when you’re about to step off.
If you see myself or any other SUBS executives around, feel free to introduce yourself. We’re more than happy to chat and help out in whatever way we can.
Thanks and here’s to 2023."
