Warwick Classics Society is a fun, inclusive and safe society that you should consider joining during your time at University! Whether you do Classics or not, you're more than welcome to come and join us. We offer a diverse range of social events, to cater to anyone's tastes, and run both drinking and sober socials. Whoever you are, there'll be an event for you!
WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOU?
We offer a wide range of social events, aiming to hold at least one event a week during term time. Our main events include bar crawls in Leamington, pub quizzes, charity events, our annual ball, and of course circles before POP! several times a term, with unique themes to get you thinking.
Every year, the Society puts on a production of an ancient play, adapted for the modern day. The play is entirely student-run, led by the Director and Producer, who are elected each year, and boasts a very healthy budget.
Not interested in acting, but still want to get involved? There are plenty of opportunities for getting involved behind the scenes, so if you're there'll always be something you can do. The play is a great way to get involved with the society and meet new people, and is always a highlight of the year.
If you're joining the department for your first year, you'll be automatically assigned a mentor from the exec. We run the mentoring scheme with the department to ensure your first year at university runs as smoothly as it can. Mentors are there if you have any questions about your course, society, or anything to do with university life in general. No question is too silly, we were all freshers once!
Sports & Charities
Each term we run a 5-a-side football team, and every week play against other societies on campus. We're always looking for new players. Each year we run a charity week, with recent charities including Crasac, Mind and Teenage Cancer Trust. We run several events throughout the term, such as charity circles, pub quizzes and bar crawls to raise money for our chosen charity.
Every February the Society puts on an annual ball, a chance to put on your formal wear for a night of sophistication.
Guest Lectures & Academic Help Sessions
We also hold guest lectures and student lectures, for those who want an opportunity to present their interests. We also run academic help sessions throughout the year, for anyone who wants some extra support in their modules, particularly for language modules.
Thinking of joining us?
The Classics Society is a fun and friendly environment where anyone regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation is more than welcome. There is no requirement to study Classics to join the society either. If you like what you hear, then we look forward to meeting you!
