Here's to a fabulous start to the 2018-19 academic year! As a brand new society, SoPaSS really hit the ground running. Not only did they promote fantastic academic opportunities for their members, they also ran a number of socials away from the classroom. The Students' Union have been really impressed with the hard work put in by the committee and look forward to seeing what else they produce this year.
The Pole and Aerial Society continue to impress the Students' Union. They have had a very proactive semester 1, running regular sessions in Hutton Hall for students of all abilities and having frequent socials for their members. Keep up the hard work!
The Global Students Society has been one of the most popular this year without doubt. They have engaged with many of the Students' Union's initiatives, run a number of large events and helped shape many a friendship. The committee are very passionate about their society and deserve to be rewarded for their hard work.
February's Society of the Month has been awarded to a number of societies for their joint effort in pulling off a spectacular Lunar New Year event alongside the Students' Union. The Students' Union were blown away by the commitment, enthusiasm and creativity of these societies. Without the societies, the event simply wouldn't have been half of what it was. It was such a hit and we're really thankful for their exceptional involvement.
October's Society of the Month is the Esports Society who have already reached more than 180 members. They have put on a number of successful events and had managed to raise £1,204 for the SpecialEffect charity in the process. With the community they have managed to build on-campus, it's no surprise that the Esports Society has always been a popular one.
November's Society of the Month has been rewarded to the Malaysian Society, for they have had an extremely impressive start to the year. The Malaysian Society have run - and attended - a number of events, engaging more than 120 members. In addition to their on-campus activities, they recently travelled further afield for the Nottingham Malaysian Games, where one of their members came runner-up in the Snooker Tournament. Keep up the hard work!
December's Society of the Month has been awarded to Urban Dance Society! They have gone from strength to strength since the creation of the society last year, have performed at student nights and have qualified for a competition next year. They have created a friendly safe where all levels feel confortable to join in and we can't wait to see what they do next.
January's Society of the Month has gone to Pole & Aerial Society! They have successfully launched some merchandise for their members and are taking part in upcoming competitions. They are also excellent at collaborating with other departments, they have performed at The Forum nights twice this month. Congratulations!
February's Society of the Month is awarded to Global Students Society! They organised an incredibly successful Acoustic Night in the Elehouse. Over 20 students showcased their talents in Spanish, Hindi, English, Russian and many more languages. We hope to see this event again in the future!
