After a very successful Freshers Fair last month, there is another upcoming event, arranged by the University of Brighton’s Students’ Union, especially targeting the social aspect of uni.
Those who could attend Freshers Fair in September were able to get an insight into the university’s social life; the different kind of societies currently active at the university, and had the opportunity to join up to these associations. But for those who missed the event, or still feel a bit out of place, the University of Brighton’s Student Union is organizing another chance for students to come along to find groups and activities which are open to join.
SocFest was started last year and was originally only held at the Moulsecoomb Campus but, due to its success, this year it will be held at Hastings and Eastbourne too.
As the name itself suggests, SocFest is a festival about socializing and fun; a collection of 100+ student-led societies giving the chance for students to make new friends, meet other like-minded people, and to integrate into the university’s social life. There is something for everyone! From comic books, baking, a Beard Society to belly dancing, and that’s just to mention a few! There will be some exciting performances and shows worth checking out by a few of the societies, giving a special festival vibe to the event.
You can find SocFest at the following locations and times:
Tuesday 3rd November 11am till 1pm (Greynore Restaurant) & 4pm till 6pm (Sprinters Restaurant), Eastbourne Campus
Thursday 5th November 11am till 2pm- Cockcroft Hall, Moulsecoomb campus
