    Hey, I've just created a Facebook page called 'Creative Arts at DMU' it is just a group basically for people to get to know each a little or tell each other where they're staying etc before they come to De Montfort University, anyone is welcome as long as they're in the 'Creative Arts' section of DMU particularly starting in September 2013, if its easier to get to them here is the link https://www.facebook.com/CreativeArtsAtDmu
