College is about so much more than studying, as learners found out at Southwark College’s Freshers’ Fair on 9 October.

 Around 300 students flocked to the Atrium for the lunchtime event where they were able to check out the huge range of opportunities on offer at the College, and enjoy a host of fun activities and freebies. As well as trying their hand at Buzzwire, Strike A Light and Balloon Boom Challenge, they were treated to candy floss and popcorn against a background of live music.

During the Fair, students got the chance to meet representatives from a number of organisations aimed at supporting young people including the BEDE Young Project, We Are Waterloo, OASIS Southwark, and NAZ Project London. They could also discover Southwark College’s range of clubs and societies, join the Students’ Union, and sign up for volunteering opportunities – a great way to enhance your CV while studying.

One new student said: “College is so different from school that I felt a bit lost at first. Coming to Freshers’ Fair was a great way of meeting people. It made me realise there are so many fun things to do here. I can’t wait to try them!”

Damien, who organised the Freshers’ Fair, commented: “The Fair was a fantastic success, and everyone who came along seemed to have a great time. The students definitely appreciated the freebies, and it was great to see their enthusiasm about everything the College has to offer.”

Principal Annette Cast added: “Freshers’ Fair is a great event for new students and really helps them to settle in and get a feel for student life. It gives them the chance to mix with people from other courses who they might not meet otherwise, and connects them to activities which will enhance their experience at Southwark College.”
