Who wants to run the Grad Ball?
“The term Grad Ball is derived from ancient Rome where pupils could only officially complete their education and graduate if they had become strong enough to lift a massive spherical object atop their library.” – … …Said no one ever.
The Grad Ball is obviously the biggest event of the year where graduating students come together to celebrate the end of University, and the start of everything beyond.
I want to introduce something special for this year’s Graduation Ball… the chance for 12 students to get some amazing experience by coming together to help organise this massive event. I believe that it’s important to put students at the heart of our commercial services, and this has some amazing opportunities for you:
- Influence spending of up to £80,000
- Select the massive acts that will perform
- Add all the special touches that make this more than any other night out
- Make sure that your peers get the night that they deserve
The committee will meet roughly each month to plan and develop aims for the event. It is expected that all students who put themselves forward will engage thoroughly online and take up a specific area of responsibility / interest, once the main themes of the event have been decided. Although the workload will be flexible, students are expected to be able to give up a couple of hours each week.
Only students graduating this year can be a part of our Grad Ball committee, and obviously spaces are limited, so if you want to take part – put yourself forward by Friday 22nd November at 9am! That’s just 1 week away.
