Wonderful party on SmallWorlds today (Screenshots)

Is it possible to organise an online party to celebrate the end of the courses? Our answer is definitely yes! Our party today on SmallWorlds was a great success! There was a variety of cakes, a Christmas turkey, plenty of drinks, fireworks, and snowballs! We danced a lot, we drew Christmas trees on the wall canvas, and we had a snowball fight. Students from all cohorts popped in and enjoyed the event making it very special! Below you can see a collection of pictures from the event (feel free to download and share on social media):

Thank you all for your participation :-)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!
