Boardgames and Cake

In one of the oldest and noblest traditions of HackSoc, we descend upon a room, play many boardgames, and eat much cake. Both boardgames and cake are brought along by members, so if you do enjoy the events, please consider bringing something along.

CoffeeScript

An unprecedented case of joviality and camaraderie has struck HackSoc, and we have responded with a weekly social over in the Glasshouse on Hes East. Come for lunch, a chat, and maybe a small game or two.

HackPub

Another tradition with a long and glorious history, the humble HackPub, in which we visit the Rook and Gaskill near Walmgate and converse late into the night with members past and present about high culture, politics, and how old jet engines work over a pint (of something non-alcoholic, if you so desire).

Movie Nights

Sometimes two films complement each other so perfectly that it becomes inconcievable to watch one without also watching the other. Or sometimes two films fall naturally into a coherent theme. We gather to appreciate such pairings a few times a term.

Talks

In which we sit in a room en masse and listen to someone who thinks they know what they're talking about. Usually we have industrial or academic speakers, but we occasionally have student talks too.
