Getting Involved – Upcoming Student Events & Activities

Certain events may be approaching quickly for students.  Don’t ignore them, get involved!

These are going to take place at slightly different times, dependent on which uni you’re at, but several activities and events take place around now that are well worth being a part of:

Refreshers Week

If you were overwhelmed by everything on offer in Fresher’s Week, here’s another chance to join up to the societies and groups available at uni.  Even if you already did all you wanted at the Fresher’s Fair, it’s worth revisiting this time to see how things take you now.  A lot can happen in a few months…you’ll be seeing things from a different light now.

“It’s better to be a pirate than to join the Navy.”  –  Steve Jobs

RAG Week

It’s time to make some money for charity.  Watch fellow students do mental and weird stuff, then give generously!  Better still, get involved yourself.  Try to break a strange world record, do a strange stunt, go crazy around the campus, arrange a charity pub crawl, involve your society with RAG…there are so many possibilities.  And it’s all for a good cause.

“A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.”  –  Jack London

Elections

No sooner does one year start, the preparations are underway to find next year’s sabbatical officers and student reps.  Do you have good ideas to help your fellow students and your university?  Would you like your voice, as well as everyone else’s, to be heard?  Are you passionate about the future and what can be done to take things further?  If so, you need to get involved in the elections fast!

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”  –  Plato

It’s getting involved and participating in stuff like this that gives you scope to build upon your CV too.  Just think, having fun to improve your future opportunities and success.  How good is that!?
