"IMPORTANT VOLLEYBALL ANNOUNCEMENT Hello Everyone!After a lot of administration, we have a change which will make volleyball fun for all players!Beginners and Improving Sessions will take place from 6pm-8pm Every TuesdayBoys and Girls Team Only Training will follow the usual timetable. - We urge team players not to come to the beginners / improving session with the exception of the boys team.- Team Training attendees we advise you to bring adequate sportswear and WATER to training- New schedule starts immediately (from 22nd October and on-wards)Why are we making these changes?We have a lot of members this year and not enough hall space to host it.But by separating the two we can give beginners the attention and resources to play volleyball, and give team players the space they need to train hard.Beginners won't get to play Thursday! That's not fair :(We admit volleyball has a court space issue, with only 12 players on a court at once.Trust me! It would be 10 billion percent more fun playing with a full double court without team players for 2 hours than on half a cramped court for 4 hours. If you are confused or have any questions, please check the Facebook or the Club MULIFE page. Or send us a email (email@example.com) or a Facebook message!See you all at training!"

Eventually, our production team made their decisions and our casts have been set for the Mini Musicals this year! Well done to everyone that auditioned and congratulations to those who received roles! "
"On the 10th of October 2019, out very on Gavin Murphy conducted a welcome class to the society.

Members took pat in brainteasers, improvisation and much more all while getting to know new people. Gavin's idea allowed members to introduce themselves to the society and got the ball rolling on our events for the year and allowing members to get to know each other in a fun and interesting way. "

"On the 3rd of September we took part in a panel discussion at the launch of a groundbreaking report on Student Mental Health by the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) in Trinity College Dublin. I was asked to give a student response to be included in the report which was as follows"This research lays out clearly much of what we knew anecdotally. Namely that students are an at-risk group and are relying consistently upon the on-campus counselling service. Unfortunately, it is also clear that there is an inconsistency in the quality of assistance available. What we can see is that on-campus counselling services have the potential to make a huge difference nationally to the success of a group which suffers from staggeringly high rates of anxiety. The qualitative reports ring true to me as to what has been working and what is needed. Waiting lists are having a negative impact but on the positive we can see how effective a diverse team can be which includes an occupational therapist and an option for CBT. Crucially, students have highlighted the need for psychiatrists on staff so more serious concerns can be handled within the service we are most likely to use. I’m personally feeling very positive about this report and how it reflects our experiences."You can read more about the report and future steps in supporting Student Mental Health here: https://www.stand.ie/student-mental-health-report/We hope you will campaign with us for adequate services and to reduce stigma!"
