AMSA Xmas Dinner
13th December 2019
Season's greetings! Tis the season for another reunion, this time Xmas themed! On the 13th of December, the most auspicious time of the year, the AMSA family descended upon Prezzo for our annual Xmas dinner. Delightful antipasti and belly warming mains awaited the hungry troops, and to no surprise, everybody left in a food coma. On behalf of the committee, a big thank you to all our members for making 2019 such a great year. Lots of amazing memories created and new friends made. Here's to 2020 and all that the new year will bring! Cheers! Wishing all a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
NI Mini-AMSEP Inbound Visit
15th-17th November 2019
Fun times! AMSA Delegates from Queen's University Belfast in Northern Ireland paid us a visit between the 15th and 17th of November. Charlotte and Jom, our AMSEP officers and de-facto tour guides, took our guests on a romp throughout London, from taste-testing the delicacies at Borough Market to competing in intense beer pong matches at Pong! And to maintain our status as an academic society, our Academic Officers hosted a history-taking session to round of the trip. Thank you to our lovely for AMSA NI family for being such wonderful guests and friends! See you soon in Belfast.

Hello everybody. Big news. AMSAX was a success! It was so much of a success that we had to split into two groups and head to two different restaurants to accommodate everybody. To recap, the 1st half of the event was a briefing on what AMSA is about and the events we have planned for members throughout the year followed by icebreaker games. The 2nd half was a family dinner at either Pizza Express (the unlucky ones...) or at Suchard (a Thai restaurant, need more be said?). And for those who missed out on the secret social at the end, we headed to Spoons for fresher initiation. Merci to Ex-Prez Sabin for supplying the platter of vodka shots! No drunk freshers this year, but there were was a certain embarrasingly intoxicated 2nd year...
Meet & Greet
2nd October 2019
Traditions always hold true. Once again this year, we set up the perfect mousetrap for fresher medical students. Original Glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts on a chilly Wednesday morning! Many thanks to the freshers, non-freshers and old boys + girls for coming in spite of torrid soul-sucking lectures prior. New members were given the opportunity to intermingle, meet the committee and ask questions about the organisation. Obviously, the committee impressed, because MORE sign ups! Or was it the doughnuts?
Freshers Fair (IC & KCL)
KCL: 21st & 22nd September 2019
IC: 1st October 2019
Spittle was sent flying, hand and arm motions were aplenty, and numerous candies + chocolates were handed out and consumed. All in all, a very successful 3 days for AMSA UK! A very warm welcome to the 100+ new faces who signed up with us this year. We look forward to seeing many of you at our future events. Also, a big shoutout to the committee members who sacrificed their time to help man the booths!
