Our Bright Side community

At Bright Side, our community comes together for conversation, connection and reflection on the ups and downs of being human. We run a regular programme of talks, workshops, rituals, and social events. Our workshops are currently online and cover topics of self-care, self-discovery and designing the impact you want to make in your life.

Bright Side momentum meetings

Do you have projects and assignments due but find it difficult to get started? Do your time management skills need a polish? Do you want to be a part of a community that is goal-orientated and mutually supportive? Our Bright Side team can help you.

Bright Side’s momentum meetings are a community of students focused on goal setting and accountability. We encourage community building, sharing and staying open-minded as we focus on developing SMART goals and celebrating every success. We meet once a week to check in on our progress with each other to remain accountable to our goals.

Meeting dates and times

There are currently 3 groups meeting weekly via Microsoft Teams:

  • Mondays 1pm-2pm
  • Wednesdays 12pm-1pm
  • Fridays 10-11am
