We’re Back B*tches

It’s been a while since Eng Soc have utilised this gem of a website, but the 2018/19 committee are bringing it BACK. The hub of everything EngSoc is here to stay, so use this as your guide, your bible: this is the Holy Grail of the English Society.

As English students, the first thing you’re going to want to do is to become a member of EngSoc. For only £4 a year, you get invites to all our legend (wait for it) DARY socials, discounts in some of our favourite shops and restaurants, as well as £1 off entry to The Palace of Dreams, Jesters.

You can pay for your membership on boxoffice.susu.org and then you can come and collect your membership card at the start of term! We’ll let you know closer to the time, where we’ll be. The first social of the year is going to be an epic bar crawl where you’ll be able to meet your fellow EngSoc-ers and your new course mates. Remember, you don’t even have to study English to be part of EngSoc so bring your flatmates and whoever else you can find! Everyone is welcome.

As far as our other social media platforms go, we’ve got a Snapchat, an Insta, a Facebook, a Twitter and an email so don’t be afraid to slide into our DMs.
