We are so excited to announce that we have finally relaunched our Society Takeovers! Society Takeovers are a chance for our societies and other student groups to meet together in a safe (and Covid- secure) environment to build our society community and provide a place where all are welcome. The first of our Society Takeovers took place yesterday evening in the Lounge.
What was it all about?
The event was organised by Beth, our President (Development), and the Societies Executive Committee. 7 societies attended the event and we had a full house. The theme this week was Chocolate Bingo and it was enjoyed by all. We played three rounds of regular bingo and one round of music bingo, which went down a treat with our societies. The evening also gave our members the opportunity to meet up with returning society members, as well as welcome their new members into their societies.
The evening was light hearted, with lots of laughs and excitement. Even the bar staff got involved! In the end, it was our Eco- Students society who walked away with the most prizes- all chocolate, of course. We have already had lots of requests to run the event again- and it has shown bingo can be for everyone.
What’s happening next?
Society Takeovers will continue to take place each week in the Lounge from 7pm till’ 9pm. They are open to all of our students, with a different society hosting each week. Remember to reserve your table ASAP by messaging @CCSUTheLounge.
