Decide what societies you want to have a go at or join at our Freshers Fair on Wednesday 3 October at the OTM. Relax and meet future friends at the Pub Crawl and Freshers Party where there will be music and games to celebrate your first night on campus. The OTM is a great place to socialise on campus – take part in Pool Competitions or try your voice out at the Karaoke.
