We are the Faculty of Biological Sciences society - one of the biggest and best societies in LUU! With over 1300 members in 2018/19, we cater for both undergraduates and postgraduates across all courses within FBS. We run a wide range of social and educational events throughout the year, on our own and in collaboration with other societies, meaning we provide something for everyone. We also have two intramural teams (football & netball), as well as the Couch to 5K initiative, for our sportier members. Memberships include some fantastic discounts from our sponsors/partners and can be bought either for one year or as a lifetime membership. Why not sign up today and be a part of the best society in LUU?
FoBSoc socials are infamously known in all LUU society circles. We boast generous £1000+ bar tabs for our members, casual pizza night ins, charity quizzes and a chance to don those prom dresses and suits in our annual FoBSoc ball! Our socials are a great way to meet and socialise with people on your course, held frequently with a range of events to suit all. We have some great events ready and lined up for semester 1:
* SEPTEBER 27TH- (Fresher's warm up event) Reminisce the Brazilian Carnival at Revs bar with our first social of the year! There will be live steel drummers, samba dancers and dj's and of course as we're are FoBSoc, there'll be a few freebies to look out for ;)
* SEPTEMBER 28TH- Lab coat party at Canal mills to welcome all members back in style!
* OCTOBER 4TH- Fresher's only night out to Mission
* OCTOBER 10TH- Post Varsity celebrations at Mischief
