From Monday 10th February, we're launching Give It A Go - our new campaign designed to get you out and trying something brand new! Though planned to be an ongoing strand of our Opportunities offering, we're kicking things off with a bang with a launch week packed full of cool and different events! All of them have been heavily subsidised thanks to Rio and Bev (our activities team), keeping the costs down for you. Here's a little rundown:
Come down to the CSU Social Space from 2PM for a beginner's crochet lesson! Learn the basics from a professional, all materials provided - just show up and start hooking!

Sound baths are healing musical performances played with Himalayan singing bowls, gongs, shamanic drumming, and tuning forks. Participants lay on the floor in supported savasana (corpse pose) and let the waves of sound wash over them. Proponents suggest that sound bathing calms our often overstimulated nervous systems and balances the subtle body. Get your weekly self-care in with this relaxing session.
