USASA Student President

Isaac Solomon

Isaac has served as President of the USASA Student Board since 2022. He is currently studying Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (History and Global Politics). When he was in his first year of study, the pandemic influenced his university experience in a negative way. Reflecting on his own experience, Isaac decided to become a leader that provides support to all and helps students who may have similar experience "reconnect" in a post-lockdown world. Through his expertise in governance and community advocacy Isaac works to ensures student voice is integrated within the university’s decision making at every level.

What's your best piece of advice for your fellow students?

At University you are never alone. Going to university is a big step for a lot of people and 9 times out of 10 if you are struggling there are other people who are in the same boat. Engaging with USASA and student clubs can help you connect with like-minded people and services. As stressful as some challenges can be, it makes the experience extremely rewarding.

Which UniSA events are you looking forward to attending this year?

There are so many good events all the way from Campus Fair to the USASA End of Year Party but my favourite has to be USASA's annual Working on Wellness Event/s which runs over 3-4 weeks. Who doesn't love live music, cute animals and free massages, right?

What instantly puts you in a good mood?


What is your go to drink order?

Farmer's Union Iced Coffee (yes, I am lactose intolerant but for FUIC I tolerate it)

If you could have dinner with anyone - dead or alive - who would it be and why?

Former SA Premier, Don Dunstan. Don is one of my personal heroes and did so much for South Australia. Not only this but he is the only Australian politician to publish a cookbook while in office so I feel like he'd be a great cook as well as great company. (Surely dinner attire includes the pink shorts, if you don't know what I'm talking about definitely look him up)
