Top 10 Things That Happened in First Term
There have been loads of great events, activities and moments in our first term this year. Take a look back with 10 of the best in our list below!
1. Freshers’ Week
Freshers’ Week was pretty damn good yet again, with amazing events like Love London and Thorpe Park, not to mention the first Bop of the year and a Silent Disco, making it an opening week to remember!
2. Freshers’ Fair
Freshers’ Fair is always great and this year was no different, with everyone signing up to loads and loads of societies and sports teams, while bubble football was present to unofficially kick off our College Cup.
3. Thirsty Thursdays
This year has seen a reboot of our Thirsty Thursdays, with a different theme each week and great deals every week. Themes have included Motown, RnB, Beyonce vs Jay-Z and more.
4. College Cup Launch
The launch of College Cup was a huge success and a tremendous amount of fun; human Mario Kart and laser tag between the four colleges was an absolute riot.
5. Environment Week
Our environment week in early to mid October gave us some great talks and events, with a different theme each week including sustainable food, biodiversity, waste and travel.
6. Halloween Bop
As always, Halloween Bop was one of our biggest and best Bop’s of the term – Monte Hall was packed and the costumes were spectacular! Some of the best costumes were Spiderman, zombies, Dracula and more!
7. Children In Need Fundraiser
One of our busiest Thirsty Thursdays in terms of activities and things to do, including prosecco pong and a raffle featuring some genuinely great prizes!
8. 2017 BAME Conference
Our 2017 BAME Conference was another success, with Gogo and Shaun Flores speaking and stimulating, inspiring debates being had whenever possible.
9. Winter Wonderland
Winter Wonderland was given a complete re-launch this year, with the event split into a Christmas market first of all and then a Bavarian beer hall!
10. Christmas Fez/Grand/Bop
Our final three big events of the year were our Christmas themed trio of Fez, Grand and Bop. Fake snow was blown all around and the best Christmas tunes were blasted all around.
