It is very important to us that our community builds on the already strong connections there are between the members. Socials are a great occasion for this as they allow us to get to know each other and new members better, enjoy the company of likeminded people, and have fun in a relaxed environment after challenging work and discussions.


Please see below for the social events we organise 

Every Monday of week 2-10 of the semester

Time: 08:30-10:30 pm
Location: Pub
(check our social media for the exact location)

Our pub socials are open to everyone! They are a great opportunity for less and more experienced EA members to get to know each other better. 

You are more than welcome to stay as long as you want and we are always excited to welcome new faces!

You can expect a very relaxed and inclusive environment to discuss EA related topics, or a chat about uni life and anything that comes up. 

Pub Socials
'Special Occasion' Socials

Date, time and location communicated via email

For our programmes, we often host group-specific events to support stronger bonds between participants and celebrate the work that has been invested into each project/programme.

These events are therefore exclusive to participants and if applicable, you will hear from us about the 'when', 'where', 'what'.

End of second semester, 3-4 days

At the end of the academic year, we organise a retreat to (i) reflecting on the past year and planning for the next, and (ii) spend time on serious personal development, cause prioritisation and career planning. Retreats take place in a rented location near St Andrews, with food, transport and accommodation subsidised by the society.

We believe that spending prolonged time together to challenge our currently held beliefs and make progress on things like career planning is really important when trying to do the most good we can; please see our mission statement [insert link] for more information on our theory of change. These retreats are for members of the society that at minimum have completed the discussion program, but likely have engaged with effective altruism in many other ways too!
