No more classes, no more exams – now what do you do with your spare time on campus before packing it all up and going home for summer? Well, look no further, as I have collated for you a brief list of activities happening at Warwick in the upcoming weeks, so you’ll have no excuse to be bored!… by Ella Hillyard
Warwick Food Market
A vibrant mix of stalls, selling incredible street food from all over the world and some amazing fresh, local produce. Round up a few of your friends and pop down to grab a bite to eat (a task easier said than done given all the delicious food on offer).
Wed 20th June / On the Piazza / 11.00 – 15.00
Study Happy Mindfulness Session
Just because exams are over doesn’t mean your stress has gone away. Head over to the library and practice some mindfulness to help you think, feel and act with a new sense of clarity and purpose and feel calm and in control. A great way to unwind after a long term of hard work
Wed 20th June / Seminar Room, Library Floor 2 / 13.00 – 14.00
Inflatable Fun Day
Free and super fun – what better way to end term than with an inflatable fun day? Celebrate all the hard work you’ve put in this year, maybe even get creative with some fancy dress, and get together a team of friends to really let loose! There are 8 games in total – 4 of which include water! You can enter teams of up to 10 people easily, just fill in this form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Fri 22nd June / Cryfield Pitches / 12.00 – 16.30
Fancy adding another amazing skill to your CV? Head along to this highly enjoyable and interactive workshop, part of a training programme that aims to help you develop your intercultural skills and competence. Great if you’re planning on going on holiday or working abroad in summer! Sign up here.
Fri 22nd June / Ramphal, R0.12 / 14.15 – 15.45
Chester & Chester Heritage Festival
Join the Go Global Team and the International Student Office for a trip away from campus for the day, to the beautiful city of Chester. If you’re feeling lonely it’s a great way to meet other students who are looking for something to do, with the added benefit that you can get to know fellow students from different countries and cultural backgrounds. Booking opens 4 June. Click here for more information on how to sign up.
Sat 23rd June / Chester
Canley Big Lunch
Warwick Volunteers are looking for any keen students to join them and help run fun games and activities for Canley residents. The Pop Up Café aims to raise awareness of cultural diversity and difference and bring people together to meet, talk and share knowledge. A great way to give back to the local community before you leave. Sign ups are here.
Sat 23rd June / Prior Deram Park / 9.30-16.15
Discover Yourself Through Drawing
Take some time to get in touch with yourself and increase your self-awareness in a creative way in a relaxed and fun environment. Led by a counsellor from the University Counselling Service, you can find out about who you are and how you are different from others through the medium of drawing. For those of you worried that you’re not creative enough – there is no artistic talent required at all! For more information click here.
Fri 29th June / University Counselling Service – Westwood House / 14.00 – 16.00
Rawkus End of Year Collection
At the end of term, Sustainability at Warwick donate all the pots/pans/crockery that has been left behind by students and all the unwanted food to local charities. However, due to the size of the university – this is no mean feat! The more volunteers there are to collect the goods, the more they can donate. Sign up here to join the collection and remember to tell your flatmates to donate rather than throw away!
Sat 30th June & Sun 1st July / Campus
So there you have it – and this isn’t even an extensive list! We are so lucky to have such a lively campus with so many activities that there is no excuse to be bored. Get out there and make the most of these last few weeks before going home for the holidays.
Have a great summer!
