    Hey all soon-to-be-aidanites!

    Just a quick message after coming across your neat little gathering. Great place to share info and to make friends before you even arrive! Anyway was really just wondering if you'd received the fresher's handbook yet? Sorry it was so late, had a few problems with the printing. Hopefully it's ok though?!

    Any questions just ask!

    Get very excited!

    Hey again (my second post, very exciting),

    I'll just try and settle the discusssion on refurbishment... By the time you return to College we HOPE to have about 80% of the main College building refurbished. If you came up for the open day you should have seen (maybe by me ) that all the shared rooms had been completed. At this very moment the majority of the remaining College building is being done...and will, fingers crossed, be finished for when you return! But that's not your problem

    And yes, the rooms have fridges!

    Phew, bit of a mammoth one there. Look forward to meeting you all soon!

    And when will we find out who we're sharing with?

    Hey peapod,

    If you feel the urge for frequent cuppas then bring a kettle for your room! It's a gd ppl magnet too

    And as for sharing, you should know within the next week if you are sharing, and who with! Sorry it's taking a bit of time, but we want to make sure we get the matches as best as can be!

    hehe no, even at Aidan's we can cater for the odd iron or two! Just as long as you put your 50p in the meter beforehand :cool: just kidding!

    In your opinion if we've given a valid reason not to share is it likely that we'll have to? I mean, do you normally put those who haven't given reasons in shared rooms first?

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for the all the delays...but we really haven't forgotten you! Claire, the President, has just been mega busy what with our refurbishment and everything. But I have good news...!!

    I got a letter this morning saying who my College children are, so hopefully you'll hear something very soon from yours! Who knows, maybe you're one of them ;-)

    I am a bit worried that you haven't received your handbook though - I thought everyone had them? If you haven't then PM me and we'll try and sort something out ASAP!

    See in...yup a week! :eek:

    Hey Neil, have you heard anything about accomodation yet??? I really hate bugging (I know how annoying it can be) but we're coming in a week lol!!! And I think I am an orphan as I've heard nothing from my parent .
    Anyway, still VERY excited about coming! I think this week is going to drag a treat

    Hi Clint (and all the other disgruntled fresher Aidanites!) :rolleyes:

    Have just spoken to pres Claire especially for you guys to find out what's going on! No expense spared here huh...

    I know this is going to sound like a bit of a cop-out, but it is true! With the massive refurbishment taking place for you guys, everything is mad busy up there, hence why it's all a bit slower

    However things should be in the post for you tomorrow about your rooms! About College parents...well things have been sent out to your parent. It's down to that person to contact you basically. If you're yet to hear anything then it might be because they're away or something?!

    Hope that's ok...please don't think too many bad things (as if you would)! :eek: Fresher's Week is still going to be AMAZING!
