We're here serve all your academic and social needs, through regular events, trips, volunteering and careers gudiance.
We have a strong working relationship with the History Department who provide us with organisational support and funding. However we're not exclusively for History Students- so whether History is part of your degree, a passion of yours or merely a casual interest we'd be happy to have you!
We were awarded RHUL's Society of the Year in 2016 and are currently the largest student led group on campus! This is something we take very seriously and strive every day to maintain and build upon the standards set for us by last years committee!
If you join us you'll recieve regular updates on our social events, our career help (including incredible alumni events and networking opportunities), and on volunteering and charity opportunities. With links to numerous charities and volunteering organisations (such as the Magna Carta mentoring scheme) we hope to provide our members with not only ample opportunity to build up the CV but also a chance to make a difference in both the local and wider community!
Be sure to find us on Facebook, twitter, instagram and even our own website (http://rhulhistorysociety.wix.com/2016) to find out how you can get involved. The rest, as they say, will be history!
The History Society combines a love of history with a lively social calendar. The history society is primarily a social society with a variety of pub-crawls, balls and film nights dotted across the year. We traditionally have 3 big social events over the year; our 1940s themed Blitz Ball in the first term, our formal annual dinner in the second term and our formal Boat Party in the 3rd term. In addition to these events we are also planning a brand new large-scale event that the 2016 committee is particularly excited about - The Victorian Christmas Dinner (With a very special twist!) that will take place in the first term. We're also very interested in running smaller scale, regular events, such as film nights and pub quizzes. The History society is currently expanding its base and looking forward to collaborating with other societies to provide some extra special events! We hope to see you there!
