Warwick Association of British And Chinese University Students (ABACUS)
ABACUS is an English-speaking society that unites people from all backgrounds with an interest in Chinese culture. We aim to break down the barriers and misconceptions between different cultures by creating an open and welcoming environment, and by hosting a diverse range of events throughout the year.
Who is this society for?
ABACUS isn’t just for British or Chinese students, but for everyone! Inclusivity is a core value of ABACUS, and as part of this, we only speak english. This society is for anyone interested in Asian culture or in coming to any of our events.
What do you do?
Warwick ABACUS organises fun events every week, such our “Boba and Chill” socials, bar crawls, hotpot dinners, and much more. If you’re interested in sports, we have multiple sports teams that represent our society that are another great place to meet new people.
With the COVID-19 pandemic limiting in-person activities, we’ll offer online socials including movie and minigame nights. We also offer casual Esports teams for games including League, Valorant, and CS. We’re also setting up a inter-uni ABACUS discord for you to meet more people, with potential tournaments later on!
For self-isolating students, we also offer grocery delivery and other support! Check out our website for more details.
Why should I join?
Membership is free, entitles you to discounted tickets and gives you priority at limited availability events. It’s a great place to meet new friends, it’s a society of diverse, but like-minded people.
