Hello freshers! We hope you’re looking forward to arriving in Durham, we’re certainly looking forward to meeting you all. We’ll be at Freshers’ Fair in the DSU, if we don’t see you there hopefully we’ll see you at the Freshers’ Social, from 19:00 on Monday 6th October at The Library! (Not the university library…it’s a bar, on the Bailey, near Hatfield College. We’ll have exec members stationed around Durham to meet people and walk there, details will be confirmed!) From 19:00 to 20:00 will be only new students- plus the exec of course (that’s us, the people who run the Association)- and from 20:00 everyone will be welcome. There’ll be some food, as well as plenty of drinks available at the bar!
Before that, on Friday 3rd October, there’ll be a relaxed Freshers’ Coffee from 14:00- we’re just confirming the venue for that, it’ll be posted here. This was a fantastic event last year, and gives you a chance to come and say hello and meet other new students in a quieter setting.
Meanwhile, sign up to our mailing list here to get updates from us about everything that’s going on! We send a weekly email, and occasional other emails, to keep everyone informed. There are plenty more events in the works!
And, of course, don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries or concerns, even if it’s ‘where’s the best pizza in Durham’ (arguable, possibly Urban Oven). We hope to see or hear from you soon!
