The first month of university has flown by, and the PIR committee has been busy preparing a lot of events for this year.
We started the semester off by having our annual Wine and Cheese night at the Bobbin after a short presentation introducing the society and it’s committee. It was a great chance for both old members to meet up as well as for people who were interested in joining the society to get to meet new people.
In the first week of lectures we then had our freshers pub crawl which was a very exciting night! We met up in Vodka Revolution where we split up into groups to roam the bars, pubs and streets of Aberdeen. This night was an amazing opportunity to have a fun night out with friends but also to get to know fellow members in a very enjoyable atmosphere. The night came to a close in Underground and we hope that everyone who attended enjoyed the pub crawl as much as we did!
Last week we had an event on the 21st of September which is also the International Day of Peace. We had an interesting lecture by our guest speaker Dr Ilia Xypolia who spoke about human rights and contemporary peace building. Those who wanted then went to the Bobbin to further discuss these topics and to socialize.
We have had a very successful Games night at the Bobbin with a great turnout. We played games such as card games, Jenga, The voting game and Cards against humanity. There were a lot of new faces as well as regular members.
At our combined EGM and Trip info session our Travel Coordinator Jaeden spoke about the trips that we are organizing this year to Poland in January, and to South Korea in April. Afterwards we had our EGM where we voted for a new First Year Representative and Treasurer and we are very pleased to welcome Martin and Lisa to our committee. We will be having a trip sign up this month so follow us on social media to stay up to date.
We have some super fun events planned for the upcoming month, starting with a white t-shirt pub crawl October 2nd and a co-host with the Nordic society on the 9th.
We look forward to another amazing year with the PIR society, and hope that you all have had a great start of the new school year!
