We have been delighted with the hard work put in by our society committees so far this year. Three standout societies were nominated by their members and selected by the Student Activities team to be named Society of the Month. Society of the Month is a way in which the Students' Union can recognise and reward the societies that are really adding value to the student experience here at UH. Not only do we get to celebrate these societies across our social media channels, but we also reward them with a generous £50 for their society account.
October's Society of the Month was the Esports Society who, by this point, had already reached more than 180 members. They put on a number of successful events and had managed to raise £1,204 for the SpecialEffect charity in the process. The Esports Society has always been a popular one, get involved and find out why!
Society of the Month was rewarded to the Malaysian Society in November, for they have had an extremely impressive few months. The Malaysian Society have run - and attended - a number of events, engaging more than 120 members. In addition to their on-campus activities, they travelled further afield for the Nottingham Malaysian Games, where one of their members came runner-up in the Snooker Tournament.

In December, Society of the Month was rewarded to the Urban Dance Society. The society has been really active throughout the course of the semester and now have an amazing 98 members. The committee has worked hard to create a comfortable space for students to try their hand at street dance, allowing them to learn a new skill and make friends along the way. The soicety has also never been shy to take on opportunities that come their way, including performing for All The Way Up at The Forum Hertfordshire. Find out more about the Urban Dance Society here.
