UOW club activities have endured a dry spell since the first semester, but concerns raised by various clubs have been heard with Pulse responding with the better handling of club activities.
UOW Physics Society president, Lachlan Souter has given some insight into the issue on RadioU’s program, Signal Space.
“There [have been a few] problems, I mean it has to do with funding during COVID-19 and the fallout from that,” Mr Souter said.
“The performance of UniClubs and Pulse [has] been a bit disappointing but we (various UOW clubs) got together and submitted a joint letter.
“Since then it’s gotten a lot better.”
Clubs are now getting faster and fairer responses from Pulse, resulting in more club activities being held this semester. For example, the UOW Physics Society has hosted a rooftop barbeque and stargazing night and UOW’s Table Top Society is also beginning to ramp up their activities.
The Table Top Society will begin hosting ‘Level Up Arvos’ at the UniBar with board and video games every Wednesday from 1:30pm to 4:30pm in the hope of bringing curious onlookers to join their activities.
Table Top Society vice-president, Willow Celebi said that it was important clubs tried to connect with students.
“It’s the best way to make friends in uni,” Ms Celebi said.
“It’s something you can go to find a group of people that are into the same hobby as you, or has the same background as you.”
UOW clubs remain optimistic with many more events are planned for the semester.
