University is not all about studying, it’s also about
joining societies and finding new interests. We’ve been thinking creatively to
make sure you feel part of the social whirl.
all having to use our imaginations to keep our social lives interesting, here
are some ideas to help you create your own student experience.
Look out for events run by your College Life
Team. These may include competitions, exhibitions, online meetings and
cook-a-longs. If you have any ideas, just let them know.
At our virtual Student Services Fair on 27 January, you can find out about our amazing student support services, from careers advisers to mental health experts and learning advisers.
If you’re living in on-campus accommodation,
your household can meet in the shared kitchen where you can chat about life, and, if you feel ready, reveal your Netflix obsessions. Then, maybe move online
and meet other households there. If you're looking for inspiration, take a look at our list of things to do with your housemates.
Kent Union and GKSU, the student unions at Kent,
support lots of activities and societies, adding colour and fun to your life.
Here’s a taste of what’s on offer.
Joining a society is a great way to try something new or improve a current skill. Your
student unions are running virtual fairs on 27 January for Medway students and 4 February for Canterbury students.
At these fairs you will get a chance to meet all the societies and sports teams
you can join. And let’s not forget the virtual freebies!
Rest assured, your student unions are working with all societies
to help them create safe spaces where you can talk politics, practice
quidditch, or acquire circus skills!
As well as the virtual fairs, your student unions will also be hosting a range of social events including
virtual escape rooms and meet ups.
music at Kent welcomes musicians and singers from all subjects. We have lots of
plans to take our choirs, symphony orchestras and other ensembles digital,
until such time as we can safely rehearse together in the spectacular Colyer-Fergusson Building.
