3 October: Monthly Drinks
This months monthly drinks were again great fun! We saw a lot of Ubuntu faces appear again for a nice drink and a chat!
11 October: General Assembly
The first general assembly of this year took place on the 11th of October in the Sweelinck room. Accompanied by delicious pizzas, the board presented their policy vision for the year. This year's committees also presented themselves and the events that they are working on. Lastly, we had a discussion about formalising procedures within CS Ubuntu.
To find out what has been discussed in detail, please read the notes that have been sent to all members by email.
16 October: Pub Quiz
The activities committee organised their first social with a very successful pub quiz! Held at Mick O’Connells, five teams battled it out through a series of rounds, including general knowledge, a picture round of ‘when they were young’, and were tested on their conflict analysis knowledge. Overall the night was great fun and hopefully another pub quiz will be organised in the future.
The activities committee has also been working on organising some upcoming events, the first being a fun evening of trampolining on Thursday 29th November at Play-in. The committee is also already planning another fun activity in December, so keep a close eye on the events! We hope to see as many of you as possible at these events!
17 October: Board Games
On a Wednesday afternoon in October we challenged each others reaction skills in a game of Jungle Speed in the board room, accompanied by hot chocolate, tea and coffee.
Missed out on this fun opportunity to distract yourself from studying? Join us on the 28th of November for the next round of games!
22 October: Documentary Screening 'Occupied Skies'
This year, the lecture committee is made up of a number of fresh faces to the CS Ubuntu community. Daisy Ireton as President, Julieta Firmat as Treasurer, Hannah Richter as Media Promoter, and Henry Locke as Secretary, have all teamed up with Godelieve de Wijer as Committee Organiser to offer a number of engaging and interesting lectures across the board.
The lecture committee has already enjoyed success with the screening and later Q&A with the lead protagonist of the documentary ‘Occupied Skies’, Ghassan, which focused on the life of the people of Burin and their struggle in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
On November 19th, the committee will be hosting another exciting event with a presentation on the ‘issues faced with state and peace building in Syria and Iraq’ by Dion van der Berg. This will no doubt be an intriguing insight into the current situation in the region and both members and non-members alike are encouraged to come down.
