Socs Week (Fourth Week)


Copy of TCD Socs week
TCD Socs Week, otherwise known as Fourth Week is an entire week dedicated to student societies in TCD and an opportunity for students and staff of the College who may not have already joined a society to check out what you do without any commitment to join.

Message from Benn Ó hÓgáin – Chair of the Central Societies Committee
 
TCD Socs Week (aka Fourth Week 16th – 20th October) is all about exposing the amazing events and activities that take place across our societies on a weekly basis to an even wider audience than usual. It’s a great opportunity to try something new, or to get involved with societies for the very first time. I can say without question that my time in societies has made my College experience, and I wholeheartedly encourage you to sample just some of the vast array of activities taking place this week. 
 
Trinity’s societies are nationally recognised, from debating to the Irish language, and from chess to animation there truly is something for everyone. Take off with Trinity Space Society, or join in a stich n’bitch with KnitSoc. Socs Week is also the ideal chance to find out more about that society you really wish you’d joined in Freshers’ Week. What are you waiting for? 
 
There will be FREE – OPEN – EVENTS taking place all over campus for all members of the college community to enjoy.
