The National Heart and Lung Institute Postgraduate committee successfully put on a student quiz night on Friday 9th February. The event took place at the Hammersmith Campus, which was a welcome change from South Kensington for the many students based there. The evening was well attended and everyone enjoyed the drinks and pizza which were provided thanks to the Research Community Fund. Rounds included ‘Name the Professor’, as well as Imperial College and London trivia. The competition was fierce, but in the end Team #Covfefe were victorious and went home with the winner’s prize.
Overall, we received very positive feedback from all those who came along with many commenting that they appreciated the opportunity to meet students from other sections. We believe that events like these help us achieve our goal as a committee to improve the experience of PhD students in the department. We are therefore always grateful to the Graduate School for providing funding to make these nights possible and helping us to attract more students with the promise of free food and drink!
