Getting into the Pumpkin-Spiced Mood this October!

It is now October; the most magical time of the year is just around the corner. However, we should not forget that before then there is the scariest night of all – Halloween night. Here are some easy tips and tricks on how to get into the Halloween mood on a budget friendly way.

Scary Movie Marathon

Have you always been afraid of watching scary movies alone? That is the perfect time to get together with your flatmates and watch the scariest movies of all, for example series Annabelle or Conjuring. The shared kitchen spaces at our Winchester property’s Cathedral Point and Riverside Way are perfect for it. Don’t forget to make some popcorn and get some hot chocolate with marshmallows!

Bake Off – Student Edition

There is nothing better than starting breakfast with cookies. Especially if those cookies are pumpkin-cherry and have been baked with joint effort. Baking together will highly increase your festive mood and possibly decrease cleanliness of the kitchen, but that’s another story.

Join one of the Societies in Winchester University

You’ve arrived at University, you’ve unpacked into your new room so now what?

Arriving at University can be a daunting prospect but there are many ways to make new friends and joining a society is one of those! Joining a society is a great way to make new friends, whilst giving you a break from all the studying and partying too!

Don’t think that societies are just based around sports; as they definitely aren’t! They are a fabulous way of exploring and expanding your skill set.

Yes there are sport societies, which are great for exercising and releasing those all important endorphins, but they also range in the creative arts to political groups to hobbies and even some niche groups.

Sport societies are a huge part of both University of Southampton and University of Winchester life, so maybe you have a sport you played at home and don’t want to get out of touch or you just fancy something different then why not join up?

Whilst those who wish to delve into their passions or could be passionshave their pick also with both University of Winchester and University of Southampton having student led clubs such as Wine Tasting, Harry Potter Societies amongst many more.

Exploration is key but also is commitment you are at University here in Winchester to study, but the some societies will need commitment both in time and money so factor this into your weekly planner when you are deciding.

Most societies have Social Secretaries who are responsible for the “fun” including themed nights out to day trips or if you’re lucky a trip away!!
