Default Uni Shisha Societies

Ive just finished my first week of university at Kent! Had a wicked time but ive noticed a lack of shisha societies (a staple for a lot of unis!)

So naturally, Im thinking of starting one, and although I know a fair bit about smoking shisha, I know very little about how uni societies are run.

So basically I was wondering if anyone here is/was part of, or even runs/ran a shisha society at their university.

Any help would be massively appreciated =]

Ben

We had a shisha society at Queen Mary, University of London few years back. Didn't last for long, however. Against the uinversity policy to allow such socities apprantly. It might be different at Kent. The best people to discuss this with is the Student Union President. Good luck with setting it up!

You had 30 hookahs going at once? Bloody hell! How many people were smoking? what was the occasion? :P

Im not thinking anywhere near that number, start it off with 20 people so like 3 or 4 pipes. Were all 30 of those yours?

no, only 3 were mine, a lot were borrowed from my friends, and some from a lounge nearby.

2 others helped me.

one event was really to bring members to the arab cultural association meeting on campus, the other was for an educational even that my fraternity had to have, the subject matter was hookah and it worked haha, the other was a going away party for me when i joined the army.

This is the registration form for the society, if you have any ideas would you give me some ideas about how Im going to make this sound legit etc. Also some ideas for what we could do in meetings This is all Ive filled in atm =]

Thanks!

What is the purpose of your society?

To enjoy and expand understanding of shisha tobacco use, history and culture. Meetings will include trying different flavours, discussing them, socialising and learning about the best ways to set up and use hookah pipes.











What are your society’s aims for the year?


1. Enjoy shisha responsibly.
2. Correct misconceptions about the use of hookah pipes.
3. Teach members how to properly set up and enjoy a hookah.
4.
5.

hate to somewhat go off topic, but did you use that as a philanthropic event by the fraternity? i would have never thought to do something like that.

which fraternity are you a brother of? I'm personally a Sigma Chi

the only "societies" i've seen are peoples shisha parties. I think usually hookahs are against university rules because the coals are fire hazards in the hands of new hookah users.

not philanthropic no- it had to be a cultural even where we could learn something...so i gave a quick breakdown of the history, the physics, and some common myths, as well of etiquette.


and I was in Delta Tau Delta.

sorry for the thread jack, but man, what you need to do is look for other people who smoke hookah, befriend them, start with 3, and expand out.

Well to access uni funds (yeah boy, they give you like a 100 a term!) You need to have 20 paid up members...so I think a few signs around the place, maybe a facebook page :P

But what do I write on the form?

you need a committee first off - Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer.

We started a curry society at my old Uni and then created all sorts of positions (such as Korma Enforcer, to prevent anyone from ordering a wussy Korma).

Then you get your paid up members (uni determines the charges) and off you go!

Facebook makes it so much easier nowadays to get messages like this out, we didn't even really have MySpace back in my day!

Good luck and let us know how you get on. You could even do a field trip to Egypt on EasyJet/Ryanair for a few days to stock up on tobacco and try out new flavours!

You should make a secret society, call it the Black Hand of Moassel.
