Bangla Society is back this year, bigger, greater & better than ever to give you all an amazing event filled year! Throughout the year we're set to hold some amazing social events: Ping Pong at Bounce, a collaborative games night with UCL Indian Society, our annual ice-skating, various dinners & socials, interuniversity collaboration events and Boat Party collaboration with UCL Pakistan Society- to name just a few! We want you to integrate into University life here at UCL, help you make friends within the society and across the campus and provide you with great events for you to have a LIT time.Moreover, we want to enrich your knowledge and broaden your horizons. This is why we are putting on panel, discussion and informative events. We will have many speakers that come from diverse backgrounds who will share their knowledge and experience with us. Also, look out for a lot of collaborations on events with other societies within UCL and also collaborations on networking events with other Bangla Societies in London. Despite the unusual unprecedented times ahead due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will endeavour to work hard more than ever to ensure we hold as many events, projects and initiatives for you all to be involved as possible. From the comfort & safety from your own homes attending remotely to limited-in person events on & off campus, we will ensure we continue to strive for excellence and remain as proactive as possible with our society members and our communities especially you are all safe and looking after yourselves, if you need any help, guidance or assistance, feel free to email us or contact any of us through social media, we will be more than happy to help. Bangla Society have a strong desire to do something for our community beyond university. That is why we will be continuing our brand new outreach programme. We will be working with the Surma Centre- a Bengali Workers’ Association that provides numerous services for the surrounding Bengali Community. We will be holding monthly sessions for the elderly, such as healthy living sessions and a games afternoon. We will also be working with their youth services, providing advice on university and exams.However, our first event is, as always, the most anticipated and exciting event, the annual MEET AND GREET - the perfect opportunity to meet new people and find out everything you need to know about the society and how you can join in on the fun!
