2018 - 2019 Committee

Do you enjoy watching animated movies and cartoons with friends? If so, Anim8s: Animation Fans United is the place for you! We’re a friendly, fun-loving, upbeat Sussex University society and welcome new members with open arms and favorite movies to share!

Anim8s meet on campus once a week, on Tuesdays at 6:30pm in Fulton 104, to watch an animated film voted for by you, the members! From Disney to Dreamworks, Aardman to Pixar, we show it all and, best of all, it's free to join! We are open to absolutely everyone, this includes but is in no way limited to international students, visitors, alumni, post-grads, staff, you name it!

As well as our weekly film screenings, we also hold socials throughout the year. These have included many cinema trips (we're regulars at ODEON!), karaoke nights, laser tag and meals out, but we're open to suggestions!

Keep an eye on our Facebook at "Sussex University - Anim8s: Animation Fans United" and Twitter @USSUAnim8s so you don't miss out, we've had many victories in Disney pub quizzes so come and be part of our team for a chance of earning the pride of being a true animation fan :) 

New this year is our Instagram page ussuanim8s which aims to provide a casual and interactive page that our members can contribute to (thats you!), so if you find some animation gems let us know! 

We want this year to be bigger and better than ever and we look forward to welcoming lots of new members this term to watch some films and have fun! Our goal is to create a relaxing space for you to come and make new friends, take some time away from a potentially stressful day, and generally zone out. So come and join up free of charge to help us help you in creating a society you will never forget!

Leaf Awards

What is the Leaf Scheme?
Leaf awards reflect contributions of the society or sports club towards its members, the University of Sussex Students’ Union, the University of Sussex, the local community and the public. Leaves can be attained at bronze, silver or gold levels by meeting three, six or nine criteria. Leaves apply for an academic year as a symbol of what the committee has achieved.

Groups can work towards nine leaves:
