Every college at Durham hosts numerous ents (events) throughout the academic year. What many people say is so special about ents at University College is the location; attending balls in a UNESCO World Heritage Castle is somewhat magical.
The Ents Committee, which is made up of Junior and Senior Ent Coordinators and headed by the Social Chair, works to both plan and execute both small and large ents within college. These range from themed gowned formals (such as a Think Pink formal for Cancer Research) to balls such as Ladies Night and Halfway Hall. Many members of the committee then apply to gain a place on The June Ball Committee.
As one of the larger societies within college, The Ents Committee has a lot to offer – positions on the team include sourcing aesthetics, logistics and administration, seeking sponsorship, selecting food and drink, and recruiting bands for entertainment. Being a part of such a large committee enables students to develop key skills for graduate jobs whilst simultaneously meeting lots of other students within college.
