The DCU RAG Challenge continues today with a pyjama day, in which students spend the day in their pyjamas to try raise €15 for RAG charities.
The RAG Challenge is a set of four challenges open to DCU students during Raise and Give week.
The final challenge will take place tomorrow and encourages students to sign up for volunteering and other social opportunities in the Street from 10am.
A Golden Week Challenge has been running all week, challenging students to go to all lectures and raise €20.
According to the RAG Challenge’s Facebook page, students can take part in as many challenges as they like as long as they raise the required amount for the challenge.
RAG Soc are also hoping to enter a team into SIFE world cup, to become the Irish winners and win an all-expenses paid trip to Washington to compete in the world finals.
SIFE is a non-profit organisation that encourages university students to make a difference in their communities.
Other events are taking place in the Hub during RAG week. These include a gig by Michael Winslow from the ‘Police Academy’ movies and TV shows in the Hub tonight.
Tomorrow Esoc are holding ‘Take Me Out’ in The Venue before a free bus takes students into town to the Palace nightclub on Camden Street.
The money raised during RAG week by RAG Soc and the Students’ Union will go to a number of charities including Bees for Battens and the Aisling Project.
The end of RAG week will be marked by a fry-up at 9am in the NuBar which the first 150 people will receive free.
The DCU RAG Soc is the first Raising And Giving society to be established in Ireland. Members of the DCU society travelled to the University of Limerick last week to help them launch their own RAG Society.
