DIT Society Awards 2011

19th April 2011


Best society - DIT Sign Soc

The annual DIT Societies Awards ceremony and dinner was held at the Burlington Hotel on Tuesday 12th April. Organised by the Societies Office, and with Professor Brian Norton as guest of honour, the event was a celebration of the many students who participated in the activities of some 80 societies throughout the year, contributing in a very significant way to campus life in DIT.


Best individual - Colin Campbell

Many of the recipients of DIT awards will now go on to represent DIT at a national level at BICS on Thursday 21st April in the Galway Bay Hotel, where they will come up against the cream of the crop from colleges all over Ireland. We wish them the best of luck!
