The Royal Byte: Computing News Fit for a King | Newsletter T3W3

Mon 08 May

Merchandise just around the corner! Take a break at some of our socials this week, and prepare for the first Computing Ball :)

The King's Coronation is upon us, and so that means we have a bank holiday on Monday, which slightly changes our typical schedule for the week. Head over to Calcium Cafe, a mix of Milk Monday and CompCafΓ© in one! We also have three different talks occurring this week, so consider attending one (they are all super interesting). The last day to purchase UWCS merchandise is Monday, May 8 at 12 pm, so consider purchasing the merch before its all out!

Please do take some opportunity to relax this week if possible! :)
