Global Buddies Olympics 2019

With everyone settling in to Semester 2 and hopefully getting to know your way around the university and the city of Edinburgh, we hope that you've all had a chance to get in touch with your fellow Global Buddies and meet up already!

The first Global Buddies event of the semester, our Meet & Greet that we held on the 15th January, was great fun and we hope you all had a good time meeting your buddies and supergroups!

Join our Facebook group to see all the photos from the event in case you haven't seen them yet!




If you weren't able to make it - not to worry! Your Buddy Group Leaders should have been in touch with you since then, but please email us at buddies@eusa.ed.ac.uk if you haven't heard from them!


Our next event is coming up tomorrow, Thursday 31st January at 6.45pm in Teviot Study. We are bringing back one of our most popular events from last semester - The Global Buddies Olympics


The Global Buddies Olympics is all about bonding with your supergroup and is a great chance to get to know a much wider variety of people in the Global Buddies programme, beyond your smaller buddy group. 

You will compete in and complete challenges against other teams, think Harry Potter House style. You will be split you into 6 teams according to your Supergroups, with your Supergroup Leaders heading up each as the night's team captains!
