So you are heading off to Loughborough University and are probably wondering what to expect. Freshers Week is the ultimate introduction to student life and is the perfect way to start your university journey. To help you prepare for everything that freshers will throw at you, we have put together this list of handy guides and articles to help you survive Freshers Week and make the most of the experience.
Loughborough Students' Union
A great place to start is Loughborough Students' Union's website which is full of news and exciting freshers events on its freshers page. In addition, be sure to join the LSU's Facebook group where you can meet new friends before heading off to Loughborough University. Once you have arrived in Loughborough, you will find the Loughborough Students' Union on Ashby Road, which is also the same street where our offices are located.
Once You Have Arrived
Once you have arrived at Loughborough University you (and your parents) might feel slightly overwhelmed. Thankfully, Loughborough University has a team of fresher helpers that will help you with moving into halls, finding your way around and generally helping you settle in. This is also a great chance to get some answers to any FAQs that you might have, as well as meeting some of the people that you will be living with over the next year.
Use Social Media
Everything from Loughborough University, the Students' Union and even Loughborough Freshers Week have their own social media pages that you should join. Not only is it a great way to meet other first years and make new friends, but it is also a great way to keep up to date on the variety of freshers’ events happening across Loughborough.
