New and returning students were welcomed for the new academic year with a Freshers’ Fair. The theme of this year’s event was, ‘Guess Who’ a game designed for students to participate in matching up to 20 stalls to staff members within the College.

The purpose of the game was to allow students to meet representatives from local businesses and the College’s student support services and receive information on range of products and services available to students, including additional learning support, careers, mental health and wellbeing, Student Union, Rainbow Society and enrichment opportunities.

Attendees included representatives from a range of organisations, including Guys and St Thomas NHS Hospital Trust, Metropolitan Police, Greggs, St Mungo’s, Ryman, NHS Live Well, Sky, The Kids Network, LGTBQ+, Change Grow Live Southwark, Pecan and many more.

Both students and staff came together at the event to socialise, learn and connect in a relaxed and fun environment in preparation for the new academic year.

Jane Button, Principal at Southwark College, said: "I was delighted to welcome all our new and returning students and staff members to the Freshers' Fair at Southwark College. It was an excellent opportunity for our students to learn about the support available at the College and how they can benefit from services and products from local organisations to help them make the most of their time with us and enrich their student experience. This popular event marks the start of an exciting journey for them, and I am looking forward to hearing about their successes and achievements as the year progresses."

Traore Yasmine, Health and Social care student, said: “The event was a great opportunity to meet my peers and staff members from the Student Services team. The ‘Guess Who’ game allowed us to understand the different roles of staff members and the support they can provide to us. It also gave me the chance to learn about the products and services available to students in the local area. It's been a fun day, I’ve enjoyed it.
