At UQTS we are all about having fun, meeting new people and celebrating great Aussie footwear. Whether you call them thongs, jandals, flip flops or pluggers, come along, have a good time and meet some new mates.
The Thongs Society started as the insane idea of two first-year students and has bloomed into one of UQ’s biggest social clubs. We are a chilled and relaxed club that is all about having constant small events every few weeks. So, if you got nothing on, we will have something for you. From pub crawls to beach days, from watching Origin with a bunch of mates to playing bowls, we have it all. If you want to join a relaxed and fun club, meet new people and chill with mates UQTS is here for you.
We have events all year around that you will be able to enjoy. At the start and ends of the year, we organise beach days and backyard cricket while the weather is warmer. During the middle parts of the year, we start to chill things down while the weather does the same. We organise relaxed social events where you can come hang out with your mates or rock up by yourself and meet new people.
UQTS has a large amount of social sport throughout the semesters which is perfect for getting to know people and making new connections. We have TRL, netball, soccer and dodgeball teams that can be signed up for. The Thongs society is also generally great for making new friends as you get to know the regulars of the club very well. Especially for first years, it can be hard to make meaningful connections in this huge uni, but you get to know way more faces through UQTS
Generally, we are just a club that has constant events that are super easy to rock up to if you got nothing else on. You can make new connections and have a good time.
