Wednesday 8 October
Room C1.02

This informal and interactive workshop will look at the Student Switch Off energy saving and recycling competition, currently running in your hall and how you can get more involved.

Our tips and tricks on effective communication are transferable to your academic and extra-curricular activities and will look great on your CV! As a bonus if you stay involved in Student Switch Off over the year you will receive an employment reference from the National Union of Students’ and be entered into a draw to win Eurostar tickets to Paris!
