Arts Soc is one of the largest societies on campus, renowned for being the most craic on campus and for its amazing sessions and events. Arts Soc is always trying to think of new ways to be better, not for its own benefit, but the benefit of all UCD students. Throughout the year we run some of the hottest events in UCD, putting us at the heart of the social scene on campus. Club nights, BBQs, table quizzes, sky-dives, charity and fundraising events, special guests and much, much more.
One of our biggest events of the whole year is Arts Day, a fundraising day for the Society’s chosen charity, Walk in My Shoes, a mental health awareness charity. Not only is it about raising funds for charity, it’s also about you, the students, having fun throughout the day with events happening in and around the Newman building. Ice-cream, candy-floss, sweets, soak the lecture and many other amazing events. As part of the Society’s attempt to move forward, there will be two Arts Days, one in each Semester, twice the fun, who doesn’t want that?
However, Semester Two is where the fun really happens – Arts Ball, one of the best Society Balls on campus. The essential black tie event of the year, Arts Ball generates more buzz and excitement than any other of the society’s events, bar none. Pound-for-pound the best value for money, we’ll give you a night you’ll never forget (well maybe you won’t actually remember).
We also serve as the faculty society for Arts and Social Science. Having a thriving and active faculty society is crucial to getting straight into the action in UCD, both academically and socially. Arts Soc will be the ultimate wingman in helping you get your bit… of fun. We’re ready for another year of craziness, headline making and general greatness… are you? Come along for the Arts Soc ride, you won’t regret it.
