Pop Your Stress

This year, the SU officers organized Calmival and a Trip to the Alton towers to escape exam stress.




What is #PopYourStress?

We understand that exams can be a stressful time, whether you are in your first year or your last.

#PopYour Stress is a campaign organized by the SU Officers to help students de-stress with a whole host of activities from fairground games to a trip to the Alton


What did we do?

This year we organized two events for the #PopYourStress Campaign. Calmival on May 15th and A trip to the Alton Towers on May 23rd. These events were hosted to promote wellbeing during an extremely stressful time of the year.



The sweet smell of popcorn and joy filled the eclipse air for Calmival. There was an exhaustive but competitive bungee run, some good old fashioned fairground games and free popcorn!



Alton Towers

The trip to Alton towers was organized by the officers for students of all campuses and what a way to de-stress that was! From roller coasters to water rides, this trip was an excitement-packed adventure for everyone.
