Hey y’all! Megan here. This is my first blog post ever, and I am excited about it! I’ve been in The Hub this afternoon (Sunday) and I’m impressed with the amount of students who have come to the kitchen to get a cup of tea or cook their dinner. It’s great to see it being used and I hope you’ll tell your friends about the kitchen and how fun it is to hang out in The Hub.
We’re starting a weekly blog highlighting different events around campus, and I was picked to go first. I had some time to check out the weekly calendar and I’ve selected my top 4 events of the week (but please don’t hesitate to check out the full calendar).
Monday, 6th November
• Final Stand – Up Comedy Gig – This event combines two of my favorite activities: laughing and eating free pizza. It’s almost like the Comedy Society knows me. Weird.
Tuesday, 7th November (Tuesday is where it’s at! There are many more events on today… have a look).
• Ceilli Night – This event hosted by the International Students Society in The Crane Bar sounds like great craic (am I using that right?) I love a good trad session but I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve been in Ireland for over a year and still have not learned any Irish dance moves (singing along to Toto’s “Africa” doesn’t count as a dance move, right?) This is a great opportunity to meet new people and get in on some Irish culture.
Wednesday, 8th November (Let’s hear it for hump day, what what!)
• DIY Student Bike Repair Workshop – I don’t know about you, but I love doing things myself. However, when it comes to my bike, I’m pretty hopeless (I’m not even great at riding my bike, if I’m being honest), so I was excited to see this workshop hosted by the Bike Gang Soc. Maybe I can finally learn how to fix a flat.
Friday, 10th November
• TGIF! – Join Niall, the Community Connector in The Hub from 5-8 to celebrate the end of the week with games, snacks and other entertainment. This is a new event, so don’t miss your chance to have some fun and provide us with your input.
Global Lounge will be an honorary mention this week. Niall is in The Hub every Saturday from 12-3pm with loads of free snacks and tea. It’s a great way to meet new people and get some socializing in.
I’ll be in The Hub a few times this week. Please don’t hesitate to come up and say hello! I hope to see some friendly faces. Don’t forget to like our page on Facebook to keep up to date with all the happenings. That’s it for me this week. I hope you enjoyed it!
