Hello everyone, and welcome to the History Society for the 2015/16 academic year! After a very busy Welcome Week and Week 1, we’ve kicked the year off with a bang and have loved seeing so many of you at our events or passing by the Welcome Week Fair stall. The History vs. English Pub Crawl has been one of our most successful events to date, with over 250 people turning up – thank you all for making it so special!
The activities and festivities are not over, and the Society has much more to offer you for the rest of this year.
Socials & Events:
As the year continues, we will be holding a variety of socials and events. In the past these have ranged from movie nights and museum trips, to pub crawls and night out socials. Here are some of the things we have planned for the rest of this term:
29th October – Annual Pub Quiz
· Held with departmental staff, to be followed by a social for those who wish to stay on for the night.
November – Post Reading Week Social
· We will be holding a social in mid-end November to keep spirits high as the term draws to an end
16th December – the Annual Departmental Christmas Party (followed by a social)
· Every year the department throws a wonderful party with beautiful (and free) food and drink for staff and students. We will be chasing this event up with our very own social.
More events are currently in the pipeline catering to all different interests and activities. We will keep you informed of details as we move forward.

Academic Support & Careers Information
The society also has committee members dedicated towards providing academic support and careers information to history students. All of our careers information will be circulated via our social media pages and by email, and our academic page, the UoM History Forum, is a platform for students to discuss their academic needs and share information with each other.
To make sure you are up to date on all of our news, events and information, make sure to join the History Society on the official Students’ Union website (it’s free!). We will also use our Facebook and Twitter accounts to post all relevant information, including about events, socials, academic support and careers information.
