Ok, so I know uni doesn't start for ages, but I was bored an looking on the Strathclyde site and I saw that we're getting the Venga Boys for Freshers Week!

So tell me. What's happening at your university of choice during Freshers Week?

hmm, am not to sure on the conditions for seein the fratellis. I think u may need to be a strath student. Priority will also be given to those who purchase a freshers pass







i think!

Dont know what the freshers programme is yet, but for here they only let st andies students into the union during freshers. I remember last year some strath students tried to get in just to have a few pints with their mates and see the comedian, but werent let in and the signing in ppl thing was not allowed.

Usually they have a bop, comedians and dj (was Sara Cox last year) and an excellent ceilidh last year which was ace fun. We had some band play as well last year but they werent that great, i remember the support act being a lot better!

i love freshers week. freebies galore.
when i'm dancin' with you,
tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

of course i'll be there. friday of freshers week, during the day, is the traders fair. go along & stock up on free pens, they'll last you all year if you're good at it! you'll probably have a maths department first day meeting that day anyway - at least, my friend has done the past few years! obviously there's the party in your pocket card, plus your NUS card aswell (some shops make you show these if you want their student discount so its worth getting). there's the union diary aswell, which is useful, saves you money on having to buy yourself a diary!

But that means you miss out on Drunken Football. sad.gif

I don't have a clue what's going on at our one. Usually a few totally crap bands and some so-called "celebrities" turn up.

Edinburgh's Freshers Week

I can't believe I paid £27 for my Fresher's Pack last year. That thing was utter bollocks. That Tom bloke is well in for a kicking. His Top 5 events are all crap and I spent money buying his crappy Freshers Week pack last year.
