Students can take part in a range of activities throughout the week and each day will have a different theme. 

DSU's Give it a Go programme was launched last year to give students the opportunity to try something new without the commitment.

Yesterday was 'Meaningful Monday' which focused on spreading acts of kindness. Students were encouraged to write kind messages alongside the Campus Centre stairs.
