Changes + Week 11 BBQ!

Hey everyone!

Congratulations to all the new execs who are taking part in next year’s committee! We’ll be updating our contacts page very soon and you’ll begin to know who’s who and how to contact them. The transitioning process begins over the course of this week and soon enough you’ll be seeing our friendly faces helping out with the BBQ and our final Pubcrawl for the year!

We’re incredibly excited about next year and the events we’re going to hold! As well as that, we’d also like to invite you to propose events to us, even if you’re from another faculty or society! Just send us an email to scisoc@sydney.edu.au if you want to collaborate. The more events we have, the more people you meet, the more fun you’ll have!

Week 1 BBQ – NEW LOCATION!

We have MOVED! To the Carslaw lawns, as seen on your left as you walk from Carslaw to Wentworth.

As excited as we are to be back please keep in mind, SciSoc does not endorse leaping off the footbridge onto the grass beside Carslaw. The BBQ will still be there as you walk down the footbridge, alongside it and then under it.

Welcome to 2011

To our old members, welcome back. To our new ones, welcome!

I hope that the holidays have brought you some much needed down-time before another hectic year at University, alternately if you’re like me, then all you really want is for this semester to be over so you can be somewhere else other than University.  Either way, a warm hello and welcome to you all – it’s going to be a great semester (SciSoc wise anyway, I can’t promise this about anything else).

First on the agenda? BBQ of course! And wait, what’s this? A new event?! A pub-crawl? Of the lab coat persuasion? Tell you more? … I will, later on in this email 🙂

Are you excited yet? Me too! Scroll on for more news from our wonderful committee – until next time!

Love, The SciSoc Executive

2010 BuckyBall – Tickets on Sale!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is finally that time of year again for your friendly SciSoc Team of Awesome to proudly present the 2010 BuckyBall. So put your lab coats and goggles on hold for a fantastic night of great food and flowing drinks in a sparkly venue for all science students, enthusiasts and friends!

The theme for the 2010 BuckyBall is Around the World. What Phileas Fogg took 80 days to do, we’ll do our best to cram into a single night! While the dress code isn’t compulsory in any shape, colour or flavour, it is certainly an excuse to throw on the kilts, kimonos, kurtas and kokoshniks that you’ve have been hiding in the back of that closet… Of course, there will be prizes for the best dressed individual and group!
