Undergraduate Spring Ball 2012
Undergraduate students from all different years and programmes came together to celebrate the start of the Easter break in style at the Undergraduate Spring Ball 2012. The event, organised by members of the School’s Undergraduate Events Committee, took place in the beautiful surroundings of the Roman Baths.
One of the students who attended commented:
“It was great. The venue was just incredible! There should be more events like this as it is great to celebrate the end of semester with your friends and even meet some new people. The semester definitely ended on a high note.”
The Undergraduate Events Committee organises events and activities for undergraduates. One of the students who helped organise the event this year has said of being involved:
“Organising it was an incredible experience and has equipped me with a whole new set of skills to take forward. Being involved in the committee has added that little extra to the university experience: we are not just coming up to university for our timetable/sports/societies but instead feel that we are actually giving something back to the School and consequently feel there is more of a connection. Doing this whilst having fun at the same time? It has got to be a win-win situation. If you enjoy the buzz of organising events or just want to do something a bit different, I would strongly encourage you to consider getting involved with organising future events.”
