We wouldn't be a very good society without a social here and there!
LINKS is unique as it is the ONLY society that is joint with both Newcastle and Northumbria Student Union which means you get to meet new people from both universities.
We start the year off with an evening of food, drink, music and fun! Cheese and Wine social is the best occasion to learn about what our society does and meet the team. Don't be shy; bring a friend! We have committee members collect students from each University's Student's Union and pop along.
After Thursday night training sessions, you might find a few of us heading to the Local for a few drinks or a round of karaoke.
Throughout the year, we also arrange amazing socials for our members such as White T-Shirt Social, Cinema Trips, gigs, Halloween Night, Beach Trip, LINKS Weekender (a must!), Annie Awards, Pink Pub Crawl and more. Our Social Sec loves hearing your ideas about where we should go next. Let Us Know! Newcastle LINKS is a great place to make new friends, and meet up with old ones.
Your welfare is a priority.
We also understand the pressures University can bring- we're all students here. We have a friendly approachable committee, and a dedicated Welfare Officer.
We recognise the importance of mental health and wellbeing of our society members, volunteers and fellow students. With strong connections to both universities in Newcastle, we can support individuals with access to mental health help, along with equipping our members with the skills they need to understand mental health difficulties and how to handle a situation if someone they know is in crisis.
