In just 24 hours, Freshers’ 2015 officially starts!

After months of planning, preparation and hype, tomorrow, Freshers’ kicks off with the Welcome Party I and the JCR events to get you settled in! Then, from Monday, you can look forward to a whole range of events from the Union Fayre to the Great Gatsby Dinner Dance, culminating in the big one…the Freshers’ Ball! And, it’s not too late for you to be a part of it!

This is your last few days to buy a Freshers’ Masterpass, which gains you entry to your JCR events as well as 9 of the biggest and best nights in the Freshers’ calendar. Simply head over to the Box Office where you can get one before they sell out!

But Freshers’ isn’t all about going out. On Wednesday 23rd September, we have the Bunfight to give you the opportunity to look at all our wonderful societies and student groups! This is your chance to see everything that we have on offer and sign up to any of them that you like the look of, whilst also enjoying the bustling atmosphere around the Union! Not only that, we have plenty of non-drinking socials, such as the Quiz and Curry, so if clubbing isn’t your thing, then there is plenty for you to do!

Perhaps the most exciting thing is all the new people that you’re going to be meeting in this coming week. Some of your closest friends will come from Freshers’. Just remember that you’re probably all feeling a little bit apprehensive in the beginning, so a simple hello to break the ice will be all it takes to start lasting friendships! If you’re worried about anything at all, then take a look at the Advice Centre to put your mind at rest.

We are looking forward to seeing you very, very soon!
