Hi I’m Tyla, third year Physics student and your Socials Chair!
As Socials Chair I’m the head of the committee responsible for organising all of your social events from Newcastle Nights to Winter and Summer Balls. Committee members range from first year representatives, members involved in marketing and artwork to ordinary members that can help out with whatever they choose. As Chair I’ll be your point of contact for any ideas, complaints or suggestions you may have for events throughout the year whether you choose to join the committee or not! As Socials Chair I plan to make a few changes to the way social events work in Aidan’s.
Despite the night life being usually one of the most exciting parts of the first-year experience, in Durham Friday and Saturday night outs in the town are reserved for locals meaning often there are no events on the weekends, times when friends in other universities seem to be having the most fun! My main aim this year is to organise fun, new events to make the weekends in college a more enjoyable time with both events including alcohol and those not at all oriented around it. If organising events, coming up with fun, unique ideas for socials or getting arty in college sounds like something you’d be interested in, consider joining SocComm this year!
