GIAG is a fun, non-academic, social events programme giving you a range of activities from Thorpe Park trips, quiz nights, to art sessions to Winter Wonderland days out. Like the exciting and social events, you have seen across the Fresher’s Fortnight GIAG provides this for you all year right up to the end of term 3! Most of our activities are FREE and those you pay for are always discounted at student rates, including free travel & staff on shift to answer any questions! There is no membership fee and no commitment so you can just turn up to what you’d like. The programme always listens to your voice to help shape what you’d like to see coming up next. We take ALL feedback and develop the plan to make sure it is as flawless and shiny as you could possibly hope for. There really is always something for everyone!
Yes, you can! All ideas and feedback are welcome and you can come and chat with the team at The Student Hub or drop an email to [email protected]! AND, if you are a sports team or society you can offer a taster session, open social, or offsite trip which can be advertised and promoted by GIAG. All collaborative events are supported and can help get you funding with rewards for each event ranging from £30 - £100!
There is one GIAG coordinator and 7 student staff who you might see at any event. We have worked together since first term 2017 when the programme kicked off and are feeling very enthusiastic and proud to be delivering an even better range of events for you all this academic year! You might have seen some of us at Fresher’s fair or around the hub wearing our branded uniform (it’s not that official we just wear hoodies)
Once you have enrolled in your course at your university you become a member of GKSU – this means bringing along your Kent or Greenwich ID to any event is immediate access to whatever we have to offer. Remember to buy your ticket if the event requires one and see you there! At the moment, this programme is only for Kent and Greenwich students studying at Medway campus.
