Welcome to Bath and congratulations of getting your place here! We at the Students’ Union have been busy all summer planning Freshers’ Week, so you had better be prepared for the best week of your lives! This year there really is something for everyone so make sure you make the most of it.
There will be loads on during the day so get yourselves out of bed, grab your housemates and don’t miss out! On Wednesday and Thursday you’ll get the chance to see what our Sports and Activities have for you and you’ll also be able to win points for your halls in the inter-halls league at Campus Challenge and lots of other events throughout the week. Don’t forget to pick up your free Freshers’ Week T-shirt in your halls colour after your residence induction on Saturday, Sunday or Monday to wear at Campus Challenge and Launch night on Monday.
Each night, as well as all the crazy Main-Hall parties, we have some great Alternative Events – stand-up comedy, open mic, magicians, film nights and even a silent disco! If you didn’t manage to get a wristband, don’t worry, you will still be able to attend loads of events throughout the week. Just ask one of our team of volunteers and they will let you know what else is on. We have 61 captains (dressed in Irish green), 320 crew members (dressed in bright blue) and the three of us FWEMs (dressed in purple) on hand to answer all of your questions. Your crew will be taking you on city tours and helping you get to know your campus and new home a little better. Don’t be scared to ask them any questions you have, we were all in your shoes a few years ago and your Students’ Union is here to help!
Our Advice and Representation Centre is here to help you in all sorts of ways, from free legal advice to cost-price sexual health products, as well as academic support and Nightline if you just want to chat confidentially. You also have the chance to get more involved in your Union by nominating yourself to be a Hall Rep this week, and you will have the option to run for Academic Rep soon and with loads more opportunities as the year goes on. Your Union is funded by The Plug and The Tub, so every time you get a morning bagel and coffee here, enjoy a meal or come to our huge club nights; Score and Klass, you are investing in your Union.
