UKSSC REGIONAL EVENTS

1/12/18 The South Region’s Christmas Market Trip to Brighton!

The UKSSC would like to thank all 90 participants from the universities of Bristol, Exeter, Reading, Surrey and Sussex who attended the Brighton Christmas Market visit on the 1st of December.

Everyone enjoyed a hearty meal comprising of Cantonese, Singaporean and Malaysian cuisine for lunch. Following that, they enjoyed the sights in the city on the way to the Royal Pavilion for a group photo. It was a great time for the southern universities to interact with one another. Even the cloudy skies couldn’t dampen our spirits!

We surely do look forward to more events planned for the upcoming 2019! Do keep a lookout on our UKSSC Facebook Page (@TheUKSSC), Website (www.ukssc.org) and on Instagram (@TheUKSSC)!

21/8/18 Scotland’s Annual Ceilidh and Dinner

For the 7th consecutive year, we continue to live on the tradition of a summer welcoming dinner and ceilidh dance, to incoming freshmen, exchange students, and also current students before the start of a new academic year. We bring together past and present students of the Scottish universities to make new friends, immersing in Scottish culture 7,000 miles away from Scotland itself!

The term ‘Cèilidh’ is derived from the word “céle”, which is the old Irish word for “companion”. In modern times, a cèilidh is a traditional Gaelic social gathering, which usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing. In the older days, cèilidhs facilitated courting and prospects of marriage for young people. Till today, they remain a popular social outlet in rural parts of Ireland and Scotland, especially in the Gaelic-speaking regions. Do not fear if you are one of those with two left feet; the dances involved are way simpler than your typical orientation dance. 😉

We surely do look forward to more events planned for the upcoming 2019! Do keep a lookout on our UKSSC Facebook Page (@TheUKSSC), Website (www.ukssc.org) and on Instagram (@TheUKSSC)!
