Faculty Challenge

Thursday 1 February, 6-9pm, The Venue@DMU

The Faculty Championships, new for 2018, are a series of different competitions between the four faculties at DMU, plus partner colleges and university staff – and we think it’ll be a highlight of your time at university!

The first event – The Faculty Challenge – will be a game-show style event hosted by Derrick Mensah, DSU Vice President Student Activities.

“We have a range of activities for every kind of person,” Derrick explains. “It doesn’t matter what you like, you can get involved in everything we are doing.

“You can bring your friends, come together, and if you can’t compete you can watch. Just be there, and you can find something fun for yourself.
