During Shopping Week Milestone students had the chance not not only ‘shop’ for their academic modules but also get a taste of what our Clubs and Societies have on offer and sign-up for membership. The student-led organisations put together a colourful week of 12 events, ranging from a Kahoot Quiz about scientific misconceptions, an Innovation Society open business session, training and picnic with the Rowing Club, a talk by Zsófia Rácz UN Youth Delegate, a Show Debate to an outdoor Movie Night in the backyard of Milestone. This memorable week was concluded by a sunny Sailing Day at the picturesque Balatonfüred led by the Sailing Club.
