Natalie, Activities Programme Co-ordinator

Hello I'm Natalie and I’m the Activities Programme Co-ordinator here at NUSU. I'm based in the activities office and spend my days planning all the exciting activities Give it a Go offers. I organise over 300 activities for Give It A Go each term so we have plenty on offer to keep you busy. I also manage a lovely team of activity assistants (who you can see below) who help deliver all our exciting events. There is always plenty going on and new events on every week. Whether you are running around with a paintball gun, or trying a new language, there really is something for everyone! If you want to play something for fun not for not trophies or want to meet some new friends then get involved! Contact me on apc.union@ncl.ac.uk if you want to find out more.

 

Amelia Webb, Activities Assistant

Hi, I’m Amelia! I’m in my third year studying Politics and Sociology and an Activity Assistant with Give it a Go, helping deliver the events. I’ve loved Give it a Go since my first year because there’s so many amazing activities to get involved with - there really is something for everyone with Give it a Go! I’d definitely recommend it to anyone so make sure to check out our activities, and if you see me about on campus feel free to stop me and ask me about any upcoming events! 

 

Louise, Activities Assistant

Hi, I'm Louise! I'm a second year Biomedical Sciences student and started working for Give It a Go this September. For the last year, I have been part of the Dance Society, where I have met some of the loveliest people, and it's because of those people that I went on the Disneyland GIAG trip and discovered all of the wacky and wonderful events that take place!

Since starting University last September, as a quiet and shy Fresher, I've become a chatty and [sometimes overly] confident second year, who wants to help more people go and experience things they never thought they would!

If you ever want a chat, or have questions about anything, you'll always find me either in the Walton Library or the Sports Centre- student life! I hope to see you soon :)

 

Esme, Activities Assistant

Hi, I’m Esme, and I am currently a third year English Language student. This is my first year as an official member of the Give It A Go Team after previously volunteering for the role through the Career Development Module. I absolutely love all types of activities the programme has to offer, especially the active ones and the ones involving delicious food. The programme is perfect for everyone as it has numerous activities that will suit a range of personalities. From cupcake decorating, to Go Karting and even trips to Disneyland Paris! Go check out the GIAG page to find out more or if you see me around then I will happily answer any questions you may have.

 

Danielle, Activities Assistant

Hi, I’m Danielle! I am a final year Ancient History and Archaeology student. My favourite Give it a Go activities are the escape rooms and the trips away (the Edinburgh Christmas Market one is always amazing). As an Activities Assistant, I’m there to make sure everyone has a great time and to give you all the information about our activities. Give it a Go offers so much to the students and I want to make sure you all know all about our fantastic events.

 

Sam, Activities Assistant

Hi! I'm Sam, I'm in my final year of studying an English Language and I work for both Give It A Go and NUSU's commercial team.  This will be my first year as an activities assistant but I have participated in so many great activities through the programme! I've kayaked through caves in Cullercoats, traversed a scary maze on Halloween and let out my inner child at an adult softplay!
As a native to the area, I fit all the stereotypes of being fun and friendly, so I'll make sure you have the best of time on an activity! I can't wait to take part in what's on offer for next year and meeting so many new people!
