What is Give it a Go?
Give it a Go is a programme of events, run by Solent Students' Union and your societies to offer you the chance to try a new skill, learn something different, and have fun. The majority of our events are free so you can try as many as you would like!
When is Give it a Go?
Give it a Go begins Monday 29th of January until Friday 9th February.
Can I run a event?
If you are a society, you can run as many events as you would like to, as long as they have all been risk assessed. If you are an individual with an idea that you are passionate about running, get in contact with Solent Student’s Union by emailing email@example.com and we can organise an event together.
Can I join a society?
If you would like to join a society after, or even before, you have attended and event during Give It A Go then click here to view our society page.
Do I need a ticket for Give It A Go?
No! you do not need a ticket, as long as the event is free! If the event has a small fee, then you will need to book a place beforehand. If the event is run externally, e.g. climbing at the Boulder Shack, you will need to sign up. This is due to safety reasons and their policies. If the venue of the event reaches capacity you may be asked to wait for a small time until it is safe for you and others.
Can anyone go to the events?
All Solent University students are encouraged to attend events.
