Interior Design Environmental Architecture Society.
As big second years now it is our job in our department to fundraise for our degree show. Sounds easy but add everything else into the mix and it's quite stressful. Running this alongside your studio based work and design studies is quite a challenge but it has allowed me to get better at my time management.
Organising bake sales, setting up Internet search engines to raise money everytime you search, a £10 challenge and last but not least the pub crawl. The pub crawl was a great success for us and I have to admit I was a bit of a cynic to begin with. Dressed up as Cowboys and Indians we hit the streets and pubs of Dundee asking for donations. I wasn't sure to be honest how many people would want to part with their beer tickets but most people were willing to do their bit for IDEAS - some were even upset when we didn't go over and ask them for money!
All in all, the evening was a great success and we ended up raising well over £300! Everyone had such a good laugh and we all managed to show our support for the degree show.
