It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The lights illuminating the Teviot building and the library’s colourful Christmas tree have got us feeling festive. 🎄 It makes the long days and possibly nights spent preparing for exams and feasting on ‘meal deals’ feel just a little less awful. Our projects have not slowed their progress, even in the run up to the end of the semester. During the festive period, our local projects Slurp and the Edinburgh Candle Company reported
At this point in the semester, you are probably surviving on a questionable amount of sleep and enormous quantities of caffeine. Congratulations on making it through 10 weeks of lectures, assignments, essays and Enactus projects! But keep going for another 4 until the well deserved Christmas break! 🔥 For the Christmas season two of our projects are collaborating for a seasonal special. The Edinburgh Candle Company and Palma Soap will offer a hamper with a new range of Christ

Last Saturday, we spent a whole day training our 50+ new team members in all relevant Enactus skills with the help of four Enactus UK Alumni me
It's happened. Exam time has come upon us. HARD. Being a student puts you in a unique position of REALLY experiencing the bittersweet nature of the passage of time; both the ally and the enemy, the savior and the destroyer, the difference between 'I'm gonna fail this exam' and 'Eh, you know what, think I might just scrape a 2:1'. We ask you to join us in reminiscing with us. Procrastinate and take a trip down memory lane... We have had so many fantastic events run through th

With clocks going forward one hour, this means one thing: summertime has finally come. Although in theory this means that we are losing one hour of our sleep, let's not freak out! It is time to enjoy the longer days basking in the sun, in the Meadows before revision period starts! With just about 2 weeks left, excitement is growing for the Enactus National Competition. This year's competition will be taking place on the 10-11th of April in The ExCel, London. Enactus teams fro

Our team SMASHED the Regional Round of the annual Enactus UK competition in Glasgow! What's next to conquer, you ask? We fly out to London in April to attend the Enactus UK National Competition!

Firstly, we would like to thank you so much for all the efforts you have put so far into Enactus. We are massively grateful for it and we would not be here without you. Here are some news we wanted to share with you.
