Make the most of Term 3: Your MCR Bucket List
If you've escaped the devil that is the exam season or as I like to call it stress season, then consider yourself one of the luckiest bunch. Now that uni and lectures are finished, assignments and exams all handed in you might be wondering - "How do I make the most of term 3?"
Well...surprise surprise, I'm here to save the day. There are loads of things happening on campus and a lot of things to do to get involved in around MCR.
If you haven't already been a part of a campus event, run by your RAs, I'd strongly recommend for you to get involved. Not only are they run on campus, (zero travel!) but they're FREE! It's a great way to bring your flatmates/friends along and get the most out of student living. Most of the campus events are tailored for the students, keeping their best interest in mind and delivered by non-other than students themselves, so if anyone knows what the students want, who better than students themselves!!
You can also suggest ideas, plan trips that you'd like to go to and we can make them happen. Simply let your RA know!
Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming campus events in Term 3. You can find more info on Browzer or via your RAs who'll be out and about promoting their events.
