    The Societies Fayre (and then the Sports and Volunteering Fayre on Friday) will have stalls for all of the different societies and give you information about them, so you can take a look at what you're interested in and so on (and find societies you never knew existed... I've been told there's a Quidditch society this year), and join mailing lists but then you actually join them either online (on the Kent Union website) or in Mandela, as you have to pay to join most societies (all volunteering is free though), and committee members aren't supposed to handle money.

    Eliot Car Park. Go down the stairs outside Eliot and you're right there. There may be stuff in the Plaza as well (there was last year), which is just a massive tent between Marlowe and the shops.

    In Darwin College? Go right by Darwin Reception (as you face the lecture theatres), and go through the door signposted 'Missing Link' (before the doors into the conference area - it's barely a turn). *I think* (having to remember back three months here) you follow the corridor (it goes through some doors) until you get to the outside door leading to some of the Darwin College blocks, and walk past the blocks until you get to the end. On the left, down some stairs, is the laundrette. I hope this makes sense - relying on memory from last year when the side door which I usually went through (I lived in Darwin Houses) was locked, so I don't know the route through the college that well.

    You can check there are washing machines available here: http://www.laundryview.com/lvs.php?s=731. You can select the relevant laundry room and see which washing machines and tumble dryers are free, and also how long they've got left to run. Very useful!!!

    Hi Althea,

    There are more events tomorrow such as a Library introduction and a moodle training session. Depending on your group will depend on what time your training session is so I'd go to the Marlowe building in the morning and speak to Kendall in the office. She will be able to help you. The lectures we received basically introduced us to the course and told us what to expect. Monday you need to bring in your shoebox and shelter project and also paints, or colouring materials as we have art.

    Think that's all :-)

    Take care

    Paula

    You can pay for membership at any time, either online on the Kent Union website, or in the Mandela Building. You don't get membership cards, but the committees get given a membership list.
