#theFuture17 event looks amazing, looking forwards to the next two days! If you see us around say hello ! 😁😁😁

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we have to cancel the halloween event.

We're really sorry about this and we're planning another event after mid term break so keep tuned!

WIT Students' Union

Due to the hurricane college will be closed tomorrow - stay safe everyone!

WEATHER WARNING UPDATE
Just received the following from the registrar. WIT will not be open tomorrow.

Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) has announced that due to the particular risks associated with the Status Red weather alert and the potential risks to staff and students WIT will be closed on Monday, 16 October 2017. All campus buildings will be closed, and will re-open on Tuesday, 17 October 2017

The-Future

Only 4 weeks left till the Future event ! Did you get your ticket yet? ;)

A festival celebrating the innovators in design, media, creativity, and culture. 72+ Speaker | 4 Stages | 2-Days at the RDS, Dublin → November 3rd & 4th.

Early Bird tickets finish Monday, October 23rd. Get yours here → https://goo.gl/HGgj8i
www.the-future.is

Very sorry for the last-minute decision, but it would probably be best for all students if we hold off on the Pizza Party until later this month because it will be closer to Halloween and midterm break. So you can *finally* mark your calendars; Thursday, the 26th of October! 👻🍕

The-Future

With only 5 weeks to go to The Future, get yourself familiar with some of the speakers we're looking forward to welcoming to the incredible halls of the RDS November 3–4.

Namely, interior design extraordinaire, and founder of Elle Decor, Ilse Crawford (StudioIlse), and legendary graphic designer Paula Scher (Pentagram), both featured in the recent documentary series Abstract: The Art of Design on Netflix.

Produced by ex. WIRED editor and creative director Scott Dadich, now of Godfrey Dadich Partners, these are brilliant insights into the worlds of the amazing talents we can't wait to host.

Find out more here, enjoy, and have a great weekend!
