Students enjoyed 20 events running over the 14 days to socialise and kick-start their University life, including Games night, UWSU sports night at the Undercroft and Movie Night. The events helped students to settle into the University experience and introduced them to the wide range of extracurricular activities available to them during Arrival Fairs.
The fairs took over four of the campuses on various dates for students to grab freebies, sign up to activities, meet all the student groups and get discounts and opportunities from a mix of companies on hand. They showcased existing societies, sports clubs and university services, and saw the introduction of new student societies, including the Environmental Society, the Mental Health Society, and the Spanish Speakers Society.
Lareb Naseem, President of the University of Westminster Students’ Union, said: “Our Freshers Fair was an absolute blast this year, we engaged with huge amounts of students across our fairs and induction talks. The four Fairs we ran were full of fun, excitement and we received an overall positive feedback from students and staff involved. If you didn’t get a chance to make one of our fairs, it’s never too late to get involved with the Students’ Union. Check out our website to see a full list of all our students’ groups that you can get involved with!”
