What's on next week April 5th - Easter Edition

by Adam Crowther | Apr 02, 2021
Hi everyone,

As we approach the final few weeks of this academic term, it's important to make the most of our time.  Thankfully, at DBS there is something for everyone, with plenty of events and support services to assist you in achieving your end of year goals! If you need some extra motivation for your exams or assignments, then I recommend checking out our 'Come Study with Me' group on Friday at 3pm. This initiative helps support students who may be having a hard time studying at home alone. Also with exam season upon us, it's definitely a great opportunity to try it out.

If you're looking to get more active, why not try our feel-good 'Workout with Coach Sullo' with the Keep Fit Community every Tuesday and Thursday at 8am.  Great tunes, good company, and plenty of fun during these energetic sessions.

This can be a stressful time of year for everyone. Don't be too hard on yourself. Find a balance between your studies, and give yourself a mental break when you need it. Look after yourself, there are bright days ahead!

Evan Hales.
SU Ents Officer
