Welcome Week | UWCS T1W0 Newsletter

Mon 26 Sep

This is our first issue of the year! Discover our many events over welcome week!

Hello everyone, I'm Owen (he/him) your friendly everyday secretary. I'll be writing your newsletters for the next few months, amongst some other bits: exciting, isn't it?

We have plenty of events in Welcome Week to get you familiar with the society, the course, and hopefully each other.

The way these newsletters will work is to give you a summary of what we have going on each week, with links to our website for more details.

👋 2022 Welcome Talk

🕑 Tue 27 Sep 2pm - 3pm 📍 CS1.04

Your chance to find out what we're all about. We'll give you an overview of the society, the course, and the area. Then we will answer the one burning question I'm sure you all have: where is the actual Warwick?

👕 Merch Giveaway

We have been running a giveaway of some unique t-shirts for people who joined the society before welcome week, which if you are reading this has now closed since it is now welcome week! We will draw winners and contact you for delivery once the t-shirts have arrived.

Thanks for reading issue #1, I sure hope this is less confusing than finding your way around campus in the next few weeks,
⁠— Owen (he/him)
