Join us for Give it a Go Week!
Between Monday 17 February and Friday 21 February, De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) will be hosting its very own Give it a Go week in the Campus Centre. You can get involved with lots of different activities from film screenings to travelling around the world through tea.
Give it a Go is a great way of trying something new without the commitment. The campaign launched this academic year and has seen plenty of societies offer taster sessions, volunteering opportunities, skill building workshops and trips take place across the campus. These opportunities are here to enhance your student experience, allowing you to try new things, gain transferable skills, and find what you love!
Feel free to come along and take part in any activities during this week. Each day will have a theme, to make it just that bit more exciting!
Meaningful Monday– Monday 17 February
On Monday, we encourage you to go out of your way to spread the love and complete a random act of kindness. There will be pens available from Reception, from 9am – 4pm, for you to write small affirmations, motivational quotes and generous words on the main stairs in the Campus Centre. Between 11am - 2pm, you’ll also be able to find plenty of stalls, including our Advice team and an area where we’ll be handing out FREE candyfloss!
Travel Tuesday – Tuesday 18 February
Tuesday is all about travel. We’ll be taking you all across the globe in lots of different ways – all for free! Come and try free food from around the world, take part in cultural games and crafts and get involved with all the activities on offer in the Campus Centre Atrium between 11am – 2pm. We’ll also have a Cultural Positivi-tea session happening during this time for you to try – you will be transported to lots of different countries through a range of different teas. Who doesn’t love a cup of tea?
Wellbeing Wednesday – Wednesday 19 February
Take some time out for yourself on Wednesday with our chill out zone in the Campus Centre Atrium, 11am – 2pm. There’ll be wellbeing stalls, boardgames, a book swap and free healthy food. During this time, we will also be hosting a crafivism session for anyone who would like to come get creative and take some time out for themselves. Later on, in The Breathing Space (Portland Building), a one off Give it a Go yoga session will be taking place between 5-6pm. No matter the level, DMUActive welcome anyone who wants to get involved.

Freaky Friday – Friday 21 February
Come dressed in your freakiest clothes, or maybe swap clothes with a friend - it’s Freaky Friday after all! Go wild, show your style! Whatever you chose to dress as, take a photo, tag us and #GiveitaGo. Staff or student, we’ll be taking this opportunity to be raising money for our chosen RAG charities. Keep an eye out for charity buckets and online donation links to help us reach our goal!
Of course, that won’t be it for Freaky Friday. Come along to one of our free Give it a Go sessions, try out a new society or sports club in Function Room 2 in the Campus Centre between 2-6pm.
