Shouldn't worry about it too much. Ranmoor is an awesome hall, with a quality bar. It's just luck of the draw for who you get on your corridor, but the place is big enough for that not to even really matter.
wow the events look mental! although surely they all coincide with freshers events?
or are these after the freshers ones?
i think i might be in ranmoor - its my second choice, but I phoned accomadation and they sed that my application to victoria hall was unsusccessful! Im thinking ranmoor will be much more mental now ive seen the events list!
The freshers events are mainly through the day (eg. Sports Fair) and we have tried to allow time for people to do both. All of the events listed are evening events. It is intended for any daytime events not to clash with anything compulsory.
In intro week the union basically run a normal week of nights except for the monday (Sure FM Party) and friday(last year it was called Freshers mania). Tickets for all these events will probably be bought by second and third years returning before the freshers arrive going on their normal nights out.
You wont miss anything much cos you get a chance to go to all the union events later in the term. Plus all the freshers week events give you a chance to meet everyone in halls. Once courses start you will meet loads of other people as well. There are over 800 people in Ranmoor so there are plenty of people to meet there alone in the first week.
