The Economics Society proudly presents…
THE RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE.
Almost 40 years after Foreman v Ali, a new RUMBLE (the economics society) is emerging in the JUNGLE (broad street)
That’s right, the biggest event of term 1/ever is finally here!
On Thursday 24th Oct 2013, Econsoc will descend upon Broad Street for another edition of it’s famous bar crawls.
The plan for the night is as follows…
9pm - Lloyds -----> 10pm - Walkabout -----> 11pm - Risa (Jagerbull UK)
Tickets are only £5!!!!
For this frankly ridiculous price, you get the following…
- ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ t-shirt
- 2 free drinks tokens (Lloyds and Walkabout)
- Free entry into every bar including Jagerbull
- All night entry into the swanky VIP High Roller Suite
- Probably the best night you will ever have
They say money can’t buy you happiness – this £5 will.
*As it’s a jungle theme. We want to see all of you in your best animal outfits/facepaint to make it an actual jungle out there.
Think lions, zebras, elephants, snakes and frogs???
The 2 most creative outfits will both win 3 free drinks tokens so start planning!!!*
Tickets will be available to buy in paper outside of chosen lectures or online. There are very limited spaces as it is going to be one of the busiest nights at Risa this year so buy now to avoid disappointment.

'Come along to our interactive session where you will learn how to approach the E-tray exercise and have the chance to practice the assessment using a paper-based version.
We will provide you with valuable hints and tips and give exclusive insight into what graduate recruiters really look for when assessing your potential.
After the skills session, you’ll have chance to network with our Deloitte hosts over drinks and nibbles!'
E-Trays can prove particularly demanding for students as you are unlikely to have faced anything like this before. Don't be that unprepared student - This is an opportunity not to be missed!
If you wish to attend please email Tom Coppins by 4pm on Wednesday 6th with your name and course details. This will be based on a first come, first serve basis.

The event will be especially useful for anyone preparing for interviews or those participating in internships this summer, as well as Economics and Finance students, where a current grasp of economic affairs is important.
Members of the Economics Society will have priority but this event is open to all university students/lecturers.
