Hi guys. I'm going to Cardiff in September to study accounting and finance. I'll be living in Talybont South, House 15.
Ive seen a few threads already about wristbands but thought I'd make one to ask who's buying which (or both).
From what I've gathered, the SU wristband is the official Students Union one, only other freshers will be there (I think I read that somewhere) and the Collective Events one is just other clubs in the city.
Facebook, twitter etc all seems clogged up with club promoters making out that the Collective Events wristband is the only wristband going, even a lot of the Facebook Accomodation groups are run by the director the Collective Events company, so everywhere seems too biased to help me choose.
I'd rather buy the SU wristband because I know it's only freshers allowed and it will be possible to get the Collective Events wristband any of the later years at Cardiff. The SU events may be a once-in-a-lifetime kinda thing.
However, I will not know anyone at Cardiff and I'm 22 so am worried about meeting people anyways (might be too old to be hip with the youngsters), and so don't want to buy the SU wristband if hardly anyone else is going to be.
anyone else have any thoughts on which one they'll be buying?
... and the ones that won't
