Fresher’s Week at Stoke on Trent College is packed with new faces, new activities and exciting opportunities!

The first week of college life can be a daunting time for many students who are finding their feet after high school.  As well as social events such as quizzes to help students to get to know each other, there are technical sessions aimed at getting the most of the technology the college has to offer!

On Wednesday and Thursday this week students will also have the opportunity to take part in activities as well as receiving support and guidance for their time at College.  The students’ union will also be on hand to help the new students settle in and answer any questions. Students can browse round stalls on the day and find out about different student societies and activities.

Staffordshire Police will give guidance on staying safe whilst Intu Potteries and Flip Out will be offering discounts and freebies!

Other organisations taking part in the two-day event include Stoke City FC, Lucozade, Ruby Girl UK#, Youth Services and Staffordshire’s Community Police.

Stoke On Trent College Learner Involvement Co-ordinator, Calvin Austin, said: “There will be lots of opportunities for our students to get involved with something new or continue something they have done before – with like-minded peers!   The essential information students’ gain from this event is delivered in a friendly and informal manner!”

Trevor Humphreys, Institute of Sports Performance Manager, said: “Fresher’s Fayre is an ideal opportunity for our students to find out about our Elite Sports Programme.  Whether it’s netball, basketball, football or boxing – there’s something for every student at Stoke on Trent College!”

All in all, Fresher’s Fayre is an exciting introduction to life at Stoke on Trent College.  Students can have fun and check out survival tips for their first term and the road ahead!
