Our social event programme seeks to allow our members a chance to escape the rigours of university life. The very purpose of a student society is to allow students to integrate and meet new people, and we ensure our calendar of social events gives them the best opportunity to do so.
Our key social events throughout the year include:
The highlight of our social calendar is the annual Spring Ball, organised entirely by the society for the wider school community, bringing together students of all years alongside academics. Each Ball has a unique theme, with notable past examples including Hollywood, Magic, and Casino Royale.
The night consists of a three-course meal followed by an after-dinner dancefloor, in addition to a host of entertainment offerings. The Spring Ball has always been an immensely popular event in the calendar, especially amongst final year students as a means to celebrate their time in the Business School.
The society has a strong history of running nightlife events for students. Another hallmark event for us is our Welcome Bar Crawl, which in both of the last two years has sold over 130 tickets. We also run club nights, liaising with some of Norwich's best venues to provide the best possible deal for our members.
We enjoy the opportunity to give our members a chance to relax and engage with peers they’d potentially never have another chance to meet. Our nightlife calendar runs throughout the year and in the past has included collaborations with other large UEA student societies.
A new addition to our social calendar in 2018 was holding a Christmas meal for our members. For this, we hired out part of the Sainsbury Center restaurant on campus. Members were treated to a Christmas meal and dessert, both of which were incredibly well received!
We always strive to make all of our social events the best they can be, so we added in a team quiz and a 'best Christmas jumper' competition.
