Hello Furnessians! It’s week FIVE and that means we’re halfway through third term already… time flies when you’re having fun, hey? Or maybe it just flies when you have deadlines – either way, the year is nearly over and you’re surviving! Pretty big one for you this week so let’s get started!
As always, our Trev Quiz never lets us down and is back again this Wednesday at 7.30pm! This week the specialist topic is Charmed so bring £1, a few friends and make your way to Trev for a night of quizzing and the chance to win some cash for you and your friends!
Volunteering Away Days
The Student Union’s Internationalisation and Community Team are organizing College Volunteering Away Days. This event gives you the chance to have some fun and socialising whilst also getting involved in some volunteering at the same time! Furness have been selected to go to the YMCA Pattersdale Estate in Cumbria on June 17 and so if you are interested in taking part, online applications open on May 24th and close on June 1st.
Look After Your Mate
University can be a very stressful time for many people and we know that students are more likely to talk to their friends over anyone else. Knowing how to help your friend in these situations can be very difficult and so there will be several ‘Look After Your Mate’ workshops running to provide you with tips on how you can help.
Training Dates are:
Wednesday 23rd May 2018 – 1.30pm – 4.30pm
Wednesday 6th June – 1.30pm – 4.30pm
Both in Faraday Seminar Room 3
Ingleton Waterfalls Trip
If you fancy a break away from Campus, there is an amazing chance to go on a trip to the Ingleton Waterfalls on Saturday 2nd June, leaving campus at 9.30am. Entry to the waterfalls is £6, to be paid on site, but if you would like to reserve a seat on the minibus, please email Lorna at firstname.lastname@example.org
Trev Fundraising Event
Our beloved bar Trev is hosting a fundraising quiz on June 26th from 7pm. There will be an hour of quizzing, followed by a performance from Trip – the winners of this year’s battle of the bands! We recommend a donation of £5 – with all proceeds going straight to Centrepoint, a charity tackling homelessness among young people in the UK.
Last but not least – and I’m sure you’ve heard plenty about it – we have Extrav! We are so excited about this year’s theme which will be revealed THIS FRIDAY at 1.30pm, keep an eye out! Extrav is the perfect way to celebrate the past year with a huge event, each one run by the college’s JCRs! This year is set to be incredible so WATCH THIS SPACE. Be sure to follow our event on Facebook to stay up to date with all things Extrav – including how and when to buy tickets!
Annnnnd breathe! I told you it was a big one! Have the best week, Furnessians!
