About Guild Fest

Guild Fest is an explosion of passion, culture and celebration of diversity. It is the first student led orientation event hosted on the first teaching week of the new academic year by the Guild Council. This event integrates all arms of the Guild of Students and while celebrating oneness allows students to be exposed to opportunities for engagement. Throughout the week, the National Associations, U.W.I Clubs, corporate entities and various support services departments in The UWI are present to share information to the new and returning students about what is available to them on campus. During this week, the Guild collaborates with internal partners, NGOs and corporate sponsors to engage, educate and inspire students to become holistic members of The UWI and society. Guild Fest fosters creativity, teamwork, activism and a sense of belonging to The UWI and gives true meaning to Pelican Pride. UWI clubs, National Associations and Halls of Residence partake in this week of festivities, that showcase an integration of food, dance, singing and culture while the Guild Fest’s signature Night Agenda, highlights the culture, diversity, talent and the spirit of The UWI. Guild Fest is a highly anticipated event hosted on UWI STA which supports the orientation of new students to campus life.
