RCSU capitalised on their party at the Ritz with a multiple celebration on Friday evening.
A new office
The partying started at 4pm with the opening of their new office, with Faculty Principal Peter Knight cutting the ribbon. Members of the RCSU Exec spent the previous weekend refurbishing the office, including the restoration of a wooden notice board from the old RCSU office which was converted into a garage for C&G Kart Club a couple of years ago.
Science Challenge Final
The long-awaited Science Challenge results were announced at 6pm, with the £2,500 top prize going to Naaman Tammuz from Physics. In the schools competition, Mark Nicholson from Reading School took the top prize.
RCSU President Jad Marrouche told Live!:
"Although we can only guess what the most significant advance over the next 100 years will be, we do know that scientists will have to communicate their work more clearly than ever before. We had a huge range of excellent entries from over 180 schools and 200 Imperial students, demonstrating an optimism and ingenuity to meet the challenges of the next century."
Two hundred people made their way to the Ritz by tube, cab or Fire Engine, the RCSU motorised mascot Jezebel being on hand to take 24 judges and finalists to the evening's entertainments.
Guests glugged down champagne, with none left a mere hour after starting and the wine disappearing an hour or so after that. Proof, if any were needed, that students are capable of consuming terrifying amounts of alcohol in not much time at all.
