In a word, UL Charity Week is nuts! Formally
known as RAG Week, it is recognised as one of
the best in the country and its main aim is to
make as much money for charity as possible.
Basically, we come up with as many games as
we can involving food, rubber, ropes, gunge,
water, broncos and more, throw in a few
comedians, bands and hypnotists and mix it all
up with some good weather and plenty "up for
anything" students. You'll see what we mean
when you get here. We'll treat you to some
of the biggest bands, DJs and comedians that
money can buy.
A recent addition to Charity Week is the Great
Race, a competition covering the four corners
of Ireland. For those of you with a sense of
adventure, this is the thing for you. It's a treasure
hunt with a difference.
UL Ents also organises class parties, Christmas
parties, Hallowe'en parties, St. Patrick's Day
parties, start of term parties, end of term
parties... are you seeing a pattern here? As the
old saying goes, any excuse for a party! So, the
bottom line is, with your UL Students' Union,
there's always something going on, usually of
really good quality and far cheaper than you'd
get anywhere else. Just get here, meet a bunch
of people, and the fun can begin.
