January’s Four to Watch!

The Ping-Pong Revolution is afoot!

As we enter the second term of the year and the second term where RHUL has been graced by their sparkly new Table Tennis team, things are looking good for our young ping-pongers!

The Men’s team currently sit unbeaten at the top of their league following their most recent victory against Middlesex University and at this point in proceedings are virtually guaranteed promotion. The Women’s teams are currently gearing up for a big match – against each other! – for a place in the semi-final for their division.

As well as all of this good news, 3 Men’s players and 3 Women’s players are looking to enter the BUCs Individual Championships which will take place in Nottingham later in February. Good luck to them!

Lastly a nod to our friends over at the Alumni Fund programme who have granted the club enough money to purchase two new indoor tables for match days. The club send their thanks!

All in all the year’s going pretty well for our ping pong players, and hopefully their good fortune carries on through into the second term!

A New Term for Bioscience Society!

After a new committee was elected last term plenty of things have changed; in order to bring in an exciting, entertaining and excellent rest of the year that will hopefully interest you both educationally and socially.

Our main aim is to integrate the BioSoc not only within campus but to become affiliated with other neighbouring BioSoc’s; over the holidays we have got the ball rolling with Brunel Bioscience Society and hope to host our first combined event in February.

Some of the other events we have planned for you are trips to the Natural History Museum, a post-grad vs under-grad charity football match, various pub-crawls, SU socials, career talks and we are bringing back the bio-mentoring scheme.

However, our main event of the year is a trip to Amsterdam on the 17th-19th January, which includes not just an interesting exhibition but trips to other museums and a taste of the local cuisine if desired. So, if you are looking for something that is fun but also educational then join this society!

The Wedding of the Year!

This term will have the wedding of the year with MTS’s Jane Holloway production of The Wedding Singer, directed by Ethan Lawrence and Emily Matthews.

Set in the 80’s pop era, we meet Robbie, a wedding singer who’s love life doesn’t have as happy an ending as the couple’s he sings for, and Julia, newly engaged to the love of her life or so she thinks. Together, they go on a wild journey to plan her dream wedding, so what on earth can go wrong?

As we come up to the big day, there is quite a bit to look forward to, including our 80’s film nights, The Foresters Arms Quiz Night as well as our very own 80’s Dance!

So put a Save The Date in your diaries for the 17th, 18th and 19th March and get your glad rags ready- you have a wedding to attend!
