Give It A Go

What Is 'Give It A Go'?


Are you ready to try out something new during your time in LSE? Give It A Go sessions are a great way to try a club or society with no pressure to join afterwards. Give It A Go is all about exploring LSESU’s amazing, student-led sports clubs, societies and the media group.  

Give It A Go sessions run throughout the year, but a lot of sports clubs and societies run sessions during the Welcome period (first two weeks of Michaelmas Term) and the Refresher period (first two weeks of lent Term). These sessions are organised by students to give other students the chance to attend taster sessions with some of our best clubs and societies to see what they’re really like without having to pay the membership fee to join.

Here's an article and some photos of some of the previous Give It A Go sessions that students have run.

Keep an eye out on the 'What's On' Events Calendar to see what upcoming Give It A Go sessions are happening and look out for the Give It A Go logo on posters.
