About Us

Students of Leicester Universities Guides & Scouts - covering the University of Leicester and De Montfort University.

Our club

SLUGS stands for Students of Leicester Universities Guides and Scouts. We welcome anyone from University of Leicester (for DMU looking for DeMugs in the club list), whether you used to be, still are, or never have been a Scout or Guide. Through our society there are contacts and opportunities for you to volunteer at local Scout and Guide groups, which looks fantastic on your CV. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Our members are part of an amazing organisation and have a lot of fun. SLUGS is a great way to meet new people, take part in a wide range of fantastic activities and have a great time! We meet on Thursday evenings during term time with an exciting programme of activities like Cinema evenings, murder mystery nights and treasure hunts.

Our mascots

Our stealable mascot is Squidgina the Slug (left). Squidgina joined our mascot family, so Squidgy didn't feel so lonely any more and so he could retire from service as a stealable mascot. Squidgina is the more reddy coloured slug and has a bow between her eyes.

Squidgy (right) is our non-stealable and is very shy and getting on a bit, so please be gentle with him. He is a fantastic dancer!

Squirt (Picture coming soon) is the newest member of our mascot family. Squirt is only a baby and is excited for life as a mascot!
