Society Of the Month - May

ShockSoc robot wars Society of the Month

Whilst most students were away for Easter for the majority of April, this month’s winners were busy making almost two years of planning a reality. Congratulations to ShockSoc (Newcastle Electrical Engineering Society) for their event, Robot Wars.

Described as ‘a labour of love between the Shock Soc Committee and the electrical engineering department’, the night was a great success and will most certainly be making a return next academic year! Teamed up with Stew Brew and the SU, a night of robots, drinks, pizza, entertainment and more was offered.  Over 60 people attended, including staff, students and even the general public.  All in all, a great event.

Beating the blues: 5 post-year abroad tips for getting back into university life

You went on a year abroad? You should’ve said!!! Joking obviously, you deserve to talk about it all you want, you studied/worked hard? Right? Well even if you did spend the vast majority of your year laid on a beach somewhere, sangria in hand, the simple fact that you now owe 4 years of student loans warrants you the right to talk about it all you want.
