WITSU SOCIAL Gains sponsorship for longer opening hours from Sun Life Financial
WIT Students’ Union is now proud to announce that thanks to gracious sponsorship from Sun Life Financial opening hours for the WITSU Social have now been extended for 10 weeks, meaning students of WIT can now access the social for longer hours in the evening which is seen as being of huge benefit to those who may have to wait around for buses or just want to de-stress after a long day in college in a safe and comfortable place. The Social will now be open from 9am to 7pm Monday to Thursday.
Since it’s opening on February 12th the WITSU Social has gone from strength to strength with students consistently praising WITSU on the work having been done to open the Social and the Social itself. Both the Union and now the students of WIT see the WITSU Social as a diverse space where people can come to relax, hang out with friends and most importantly be themselves and always be welcome. WIT Student Union President Michael Murphy said “The WITSU Social has been a hive of activity since it’s opening with students not wanting to leave at 5 o clock. We are overwhelming grateful for Sun Life Financial’s generous donation to extend these opening hours.”
The ‘Social’ has filled up every day to the delight of the team who worked so hard from its conception to make it a safe space for all the students and members of WIT. It has truly become a real centre of campus life as envisioned. On behalf of Sun Life Financial, Anne Phelan said “ Sun Life values their long standing partnership with WIT and therefore we are delighted to provide this sponsorship and donation of laptops for the benefit of the diverse student body so they can avail of the new fantastic WITSU Social facilities
