Freshers Week is approaching, and we want to end it with a bang! On Friday, we will host the first pub crawl of the season. However, it comes with a twist – to know which pub you’re headed to, you will have to answer quizzes and look for clues along the way.
This is a brilliant way of getting to know your new peers in a friendly and fun environment. We will meet at the Strand Campus at 7 PM on Friday (21st of September). The event can be found on Facebook here (be sure to like our page while you’re at it).
Excited to see you all! In the meantime, enjoy freshers week!
One of the many things the committee is currently planning is merchandise! Your opinion is valuable to us, and we hope many of you could take a minute to answer this poll on what kind of merch you want us to stock for the upcoming term. The two alternatives with the most votes will be the two options of merchandise that we will offer in September.
We are very excited to see you all in September dressed in the latest War Studies fashion.
The link to the poll can be found here.
Members of the War Studies Society welcomed 6 new committee members at the end of the last term. We are very excited to begin our work and have many exciting ideas and plans for the coming term.
Sasha Cantet was elected President, and have Henning Sønsterud by her side as Vice President. They are both honoured to have been granted the opportunity to continue the good work the previous committee did.
Aahan Upadhyay and Rania Mohiuddin will be taking the positions of Social Secretaries, and have many interesting ideas for new events. Saga Jaubert is the name of the new Treasurer, who will be in charge of overseeing that our finances run smoothly. Julia Thommessen is the new Publicity and Merchandising Officer, ensuring our members are dressed in the latest War Studies fashion.
Thank you for trusting us enough to vote for us. We hope we will run this society in a way that is pleasing to all our members. We are all extremely excited to begin our work and hope to continue the legacy of the committees before us.
Remember to follow our Facebook and Twitter pages!
