Introducing theย West Indian Society!

Introducing you to the newest society at the University of Surrey, the West Indian Society


While studying at Surrey I witnessed a gap in representation for Caribbean students on campus. This year, I was proudly a part of the first ever West Indian Society at the university where I not only had the pleasure of meeting other students from the Caribbean, but I joined the committee as Secretary.

In my committee role, I handled the general organisation & administration of the society, such as passing information from emails to signatories, booking rooms for events and arranging meetings and taking minutes and responding to emails and direct messages. I also designed, managed and maintained the society website.

At the 2024 Union Ball, the society won best new society which was a huge accomplishment for many of our small islands! Events hosted this academic year include a meet & greet, bake sale, movie night and the biggest of them all, Stag Hill Carnival!
