    Hello

    I'm doing A&F at Rootes but I don't know what block I am in, or whether I am in Old Rootes or New Rootes. I'd really like to know of course

    How did people find out? I've enrolled, got my IT account and done my accom. contract but didn't see my block letter

    Ooo, a chemical biologist . I'm on me third year of that course now - let me tell you, we're a rare breed! . There's only about 8 per year :lol: . If you have any questions, hit me up!

    Andyway, the Las Vegas night is £20 because it is a whole union event, where the fancy the place up and everything, and generally make it an impressive night. All the events which are £3-£4 etc., will only be copper rooms events (just the nightclub).

    And Benefactors is an amazing hall! Don't you worry about that!
    Sweet! I managed to get a place through clearing as I didn't make it into UCL. The course looks pretty awesome though, I can't believe such a low number of students do it.

    Ah that makes sense then, I guess it's a pretty big night that night then?

    Did you stay in Benefactors yourself? I heard its a very small hall so I'm hopeful everyone gets to know one another pretty well!

    When you open your contract it should say A-I(Which is Old) or J-P(Which is New)

    This is what will open up. Then if it says A-I it's you're in old Rootes and if it says J-P you're in New Rootes.

    Is anybody thinking of joining Simplygym in Cannon Park? I figured since I'll be in Westwood it could be almost easier to get to than the uni gym. I also heard the university gym can get a bit congested. Anybody have any experience with either gym?

    Just bought tickets for the comedy night, Pop and the Freshers Party.

    I'm torn between Crash and Rave Digger, what did you guys go for? Crash looks like fun, but then again it goes on throughout term...

    Nope! The Paint Party, Drop, and Pop on the 2nd October are the only ones that have sold out so far. You can still get tickets to everything else.

    Thanks

    Not sure whether to get them now or wait until I get there... would hate to have to go to an event that none of my flatmates have bought tickets for (and vice versa)

    Saaame. At the same time though, I don't really want to box myself into only doing what my flatmates are doing... I mean, half the point of going is meeting other people, right? If you wait til you get there before you buy anything you risk things selling out.

    You're probably right! Ha, I just can't imagine going out on my own and just going up to people. Ah, there is a first time for everything i guess!

    I'm sure there will be somebody in your block that has the fresher's passport, you can just go with them!

    You've probably answered this a million times, but what is the situation with the NUS cards, and which one to get?

    Also, regarding when to apply/pay for societies. is this all done in freshers or is it recommended to do it before (no idea how we do this)?

    You deserve a medal, Nirgilis!!
