Ever wondered what student clubs get up to?

The Physics Society recently won the 2019 UniClubs Campus Engagement award for all their social activities.

The award criteria is based on successful, well attended events that are open to all UOW students, along with the society’s attendance at majority of UniClubs events, and promotion of inclusiveness to all UOW students to become club members.

The club is well known for creating a big white mist at most events, which is liquid nitrogen cooling as they make their famous ice-cream.

Their efforts during 2019 saw an increase in membership by 30%. But the society is hungry for more.

Former club President Madeline Carr said the key to the Physics Society success was that the events were open to all UOW students, regardless of their membership status, study discipline, gender or background.

“This included their famous Bev’s and Board games nights, welcome back BBQ and Picnic, sports and movie nights and also fortnightly educational seminars,” she said.

“Further to that they were present at every single UniClubs and UOW events including Clubs Day, Open Days, O-Weeks and more.”
