I would like to ensure members get the best out of what Warwick and HistSoc can offer both academically and socially! On behalf of all the exec, we hope HistSoc, in all its capacities, will add to your Warwick experience.
In my role as Vice President this year, I work closely in supporting the President and the rest of the exec in the day to day smooth running of the society. I am looking forward to ensuring an amazing year ahead for HistSoc!

Careers and Alumni
HistSoc has always been well known on campus for its extra-curricular activities and the opportunities it presents. I'm excited to add to its legacy by widening the range of careers talks so that everyone at HistSoc knows there's something out there for them in life after Warwick.
This year I'm looking forward to expanding the charitable efforts of HistSoc, particularly focussing on homelessness in Leamington Spa, building upon an important part of one of the most vibrant and engaging societies on campus!

As well as helping out the other Exec when I can my role as Medieval Officer involves arranging academic talks and module assistance to do with all things medieval!
Being a freshers rep last year made me get to know and love the HistSoc family even more and now it's my favourite part of my uni life! I can't wait to throw socials with Curtis this year that are even bigger and better than before.
We plan to deliver a broad range of socials that offer a fantastic opportunity to help you fully integrate yourself into the society by bridging the gap between year groups. What’s better than making purple-stained memories or achieving eternal glory at the Duck Pub Quiz? At HistSoc, there’s something for everyone!
This year I hope to make Tour an experience that gets remembered in the history books.
When campus starts to live up to expectation of the 'Warwick bubble', it's time to broaden your horizons and take part in our trips and tour. They'll be worth the experience.
My aim is to organise a great evening for everyone from ever year to bond with people you may not even have met yet, and to have fun with everyone on the course.
Myself and Darcy’s role is to organise the ball, which is the biggest social event of the HistSoc calendar! Our main roles include booking a venue, bringing together a committee to help with organisation and ensuring we stay on budget. We are looking forward to organising the ball which we hope will have a buzzing atmosphere, be good value for money and bring together all years!
I am looking forward to continuing the progress that HistSoc FC made last year. The team has achieved great success on the field and become an even closer group that is looking forward to new members joining the team.
I am very excited to welcome new members of HistSoc netball this year. With no emphasis on ability or degree discipline, this is a great opportunity to have fun and be active! Looking forward to getting started!
HistSoc was the best part of my freshers experience, and I'm looking forward to leading the society, welcoming new and returning members alike. I am excited to welcome our new branches, and to work with the entire exec to provide you with the best HistSoc experience possible.
My responsibility is assisting the president, as well as supporting the co-ordination of the rest of the exec in order to help make HistSoc the most vibrant subject society on campus! I’m 20, and a second year studying history on the modern-stream.

As your Marketing and Communications Officers we are in charge of keeping everyone up to date with society events in the weekly newsletters, via our social media accounts or on the website.
Marketing and Communications Officer
In short, if anything’s happening we’ll make sure you know about it.
We want to deliver a range of big socials to help you strike that balance between slaving away in the library and out actually having some fun– coffee mornings for the mentor scheme, charity nights out, a pre-tour circle and more! Don't worry, we will keep it totally historical.
We plan to use socials to integrate the society and bridge divisions between the year groups.
Like the great travellers of old, we aim to increase the collective knowledge of the Society through expeditions as worthy of commitment to history as those of Marco Polo, Vasco da Gama and Ernest Shackleton.
Strap up, HistSoc, because we're taking you places.
Academic and Welfare Officer

Careers & Alumni
I’m your first point of call for your career needs from the society. As a fourth year, I have strong links with recent alumni whom I am looking to bring back to guide us and to relive their good times at Warwick. I look forward to helping you out over the year.
As social secretaries our role is to welcome everyone, especially the freshers to the society. We hope to organise plenty of socials throughout the year so that all of our members get to know each other outside of the classroom and throughly enjoy their time at Warwick. We have many fun and exciting events planed, including nights out, balls and day trips.
We want to provide an environment where all HistSoc members feel comfortable and where all their social needs are catered for. HistSoc has been instrumental for many over the years in helping to form lifelong friendships with other students across several year groups through their mutual participation in HistSoc.
I’m responsible for organising both the domestic and foreign HistSoc tours. I love travelling and planning holidays, so I'm looking forward to organising both this years trips. Tour is a brilliant way to meet people and experience amazing places, as a result it sells out every year in minutes! I’m aiming to build on such past brilliant excursions as Prague and Budapest!
It is up to Ella and me to organise the HistSoc Ball, one of the biggest events in your first year at Warwick. We are in charge of the ball committee, along with arranging a venue, entertainment, food and drink as well as a great after-party! But above all, our responsibility as ball officer is to make the ball the best night of your life.
To help us achieve this we would love to see as many people as possible getting involved by applying to be in the ball committee and help us make this a night to go down in history! Being a part of the committee is a great way to meet new people and get involved in the society while having some fun along the way.

It is my responsibility to co-ordinate and organise a netball team to be entered into the intramural league. We are a friendly bunch so some along no matter what your experience of playing is. For those who want to get involved but aren’t into competitive matches I will also be running informal training sessions where people can come along to play socially.
As sports officer, I aim to create a supportive environment in which students can come together and share in their common passion of sport. I run the HistSoc football team that plays in the Warwick Intramural Leagues. We put out two sides in two different leagues providing plenty of playing time for anyone who’s interested; this year we’re aiming for silverware!
