    what time is everyone getting down to camb on the 2nd? i've been allocated a time slot in which to arrive at the sidney car park and unload my stuff. their car park is tiny and can't fit more than 6 cars in it lol :rolleyes:

    also, has anyone been told what the plans for the saturday are? so far i haven't seen anything past a drink in subject groups
    Hey priya - I've skipped a couple of oages so you might have had an answer but this is roughly what will happen on the Saturday:

    You arrive morning/early afternoon, and go straight to the plodge to sign in and get your keys. Current students help you take your stuff up to your room and you'll probably have time to do a bit of unpacking. Then in the afternoon there's a garden party for you and your family - this is likely to be where you meet your college parents and your real parents get a chance to be talked at by dons. You get taken off in subject groups for a quick tour of the college and then you go out with your subject groups for dinner and drinkies. And finally you usually return to college and head straight for the bar, before retiring to bed and probably freaking at the amount of unpacking you haven't done and need to do before you collapse because there areboxes all over your bed...

    This is roughly how it worked out for me anyway

    move up after 4pm. that way u can sort all your stuff out on sunday morning, and go out saturday night, when the majority of freshers will be in town

    Why not see what the one's like that they provide for you, and if it sucks, bring up your own

    we just need to keep posting whilst in freshers week. and posting a LOT as well. once this thread dries up due to the amount of work we'll be doing, the football one will definitely take over...especially with all the major championships back in full swing again
