Activities beyond the classroom

Each term, undergraduate and master's students at the University of Warwick have the opportunity to attend new events and activities that have been developed as a way to know each other and have a good time. The University of Warwick is a space on campus for students to meet new friends, some for life while giving an opportunity to meet diverse people from different cultures through fun and excited activities. Students have a busy lifestyle, among all their duties and responsibilities, which leaves them little time to socialize, but with the events offered by Warwick, they can enjoy fun activities like the ones that had taken place, for example, the afternoon tea, language exchange sessions, movie nights and sports events. Each one of these activities allows students to release some steam before any deadlines or exams.
One of the activities I had try and really enjoy my time at the University was the movie nights with one of our teachers, Vagelis, which are really fun and entertaining. Let me tell a little more about it, each couple of weeks they organized a movie night where a movie related to research methods is presented. Sounds boring???... Of course, not... each time a lot of my fellow classmates gather around and enjoy the different selection of movies available. We also take some time to enjoy a snack and pizza while we talk with other people invited and get to know them. So, one recommendation I make to any fellow student wanting to do something one afternoon and don’t really know much people but enjoy a good movie, I recommend you join us in one of these movie nights and I promise you that you will have the time of your life.
Every day new activities are popping out on social media like Facebook, Instagram or the Warwick web page, just be patient and something you might enjoy will appear. Each time the students and staff are trying harder to come up with brand new activities for us students to be a participant and enjoy them as much as we can.
