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’re one of over 40 clubs across the UK affiliated to the national Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO).

Although we follow the aims of the Scout Association and Girlguiding UK, you don’t have to already be a scout or guide to join us.

Our members are part of an amazing organisation - and have a lot of fun. We meet nearly every Wednesday night during term time and do things like pumpkin carving, murder mystery nights and treasure hunts.

We currently have 17 active members.

Our mascots

Our stealable mascot is Squidgina the Slug. Squidgina is a new addition to our mascot family, so Squidgy doesn't feel so lonely any more. Squidgina is the more reddy coloured slug.

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