The Movie Club kicked off this semester with its second outdoor movie. After the success of Pitch Perfect last year, we thought we’d try to make this a tradition.
The viewing of Lion King during O-Week was a roaring success. Adding beanbags, popcorn, candyfloss and Hopt soda to the mix, it was a fun night for everyone!

Aside from ordinary movie events, we’re hoping to organise a similar event for Winter O-Week – with beanbags (again!), hot chocolate, onesies, and a winter-themed movie.

The Garden Club will soon be hosting a Traditional Umu Cooking Workshop.
