So, Freshers will be descending upon us soon and I’m sure we’ve all been anticipating this for a long time – the long queues, pointing people in every direction and using the Maths Building as a rough guide when directing to Avenue Campus – not to mention figuring out how we can try to regain our lost first year and be ‘cool’ with Southampton’s newuns.
For those who still feel they need a not-so-definitive second, third or even fourth year guide to Freshers’ Fortnight, here you go!
Saturday 21st – The free SO:Fest Festival at the Guildhall Square
Monday 23rd – Make the most of the free burgers being given out at The Stag’s Head BBQ.
Tuesday 24th – Star Trek Into Darkness at Union Films, but do give Freshers a chance to get a seat!
Wednesday 25th – Anyone fancy crashing the Halls Fest at Oceana?
Thursday 26th – Everyone loves a bit of Karaoke at The Stag’s Head.
Friday 27th – You choose the music at The Jukebox in The Bridge tonight.
Saturday 28th – Some freshers are having a Superheroes and Villains theme at Junk so, if that’s your style, why not? I for one will be back in Jesters!
Sunday 29th – It’s a day before Uni officially starts, but if you feel the need, the Oktoberfest at Jesters (the colder equivalent of the Cider Fest) will be taking place!
Tuesday 1st October – Union Films is showing This Is the End.
Wednesday 2nd – Student Therapy at Oceana. Remember to check your timetable so you don’t miss that all important first 9am of the semester!
Thursday 3rd – Tonight is the opener for Lennon’s brand new club night, BANG! The Jukebox.
Saturday 5th – Club Psychedelia’s Birthday weekend at The Cellar and Lennons (cont.)
(N.B: Any missed days should be filled with good Jestering, SoBar-ness and plenty of going out in Bedford or town. Or finishing off that all-important reading for the semester ahead!)
