Holding events is an effective way of promoting your club/society. If you are organising an event, a great place to host it is on the platform. All societies can have their events in one place, making it easier for students to find your events and easier for you to advertise, host, and get more exposure. More information on hosting your events on Native can be found here. If you have any queries regarding hosting club/society events, please email
