Freshers’ Week is a festival to launch you into university life, run by all the student organisations on campus – this is the biggest student party you’ll ever go to. It’s your chance to get an idea of what life is a student in Glasgow is all about, concentrated down into one week of live music, bus tours, fairs, quizzes, hypnotists, comedy and much, much more.
The SRC has a large part to play in Freshers’ Week, putting on live music, the Freshers’ Fair, campus tours, introductions to student activism, the student media and volunteering as well as events for international students, mature students and postgraduates. It also gives you the chance to meet like minded people, join clubs and societies and how to use your time in Glasgow to get more than a degree. While the unions give you a taste of the fun aspects of student life, the SRC provide a week to help you get to know the university, its services and the people you’ll be spending the next four years with.
