Twice a term our Social Sec arranges a Themed Social or Pub Crawl!
For example, last year we had a beach themed night with free drinks. Stay tuned!
As Christmas approaches we have our annual Ceilidh (traditional Scottish folk dance and music) arranged together with the School of Economics. Everyone is encouraged to try it and and fail it! 😄
The School of Economics and Economics Society hosts an annual ball! It is a spectacular evening of wine, dinner and dancing in the beginning of March.
EconPALS is a peer assisted learning scheme supported by The University of Edinburgh and EUSA, dedicated to First Year Economics Undergraduates.
Every year our society arranges for the members to go and see new movies related to Economics at half the price. This time we went to see The Big Short!
Insight Launch Party
At the end of each term our Magazine, insight, launches its new issue. This is celebrated at a nearby pub, and there is free food and drinks!
Freshers' Pub Crawl
On the Welcome Week's Thursday we all — new and old members — roam through the different pubs of Edinburgh. Last year we were 100 members going!
Meet & Greet
Monday at noon during the Welcome Week, we greet our new members! Meet your new classmates, and find out about our society. Lunch is on us!
During the Welcome Week we have a booth at the Activities' Fair, where we sell memberships and talk about what our society does.
We arrange a big barbecue for our freshers! Each September our committee members fry up hundreds of hamburgers and hot dogs — including vegetarian — free for everyone.
