    Me too, I can't wait to meet everyone! I know, I spent ages trying to find something on it but I think this must be the only forum. It's nice to speak to somebody else who is going.

    Hi, wondering if anyone has got anything in the post about the event? I'm sending an email down now because I was told we'd get something soon.

    All I've received is an email with an attachment stating all the information about the day and a provisional itinerary, if you haven't got it I can send it to you. Have you told them how you're getting there etc.? That information was supposed to be emailed to them by today.

    They've been really bad at communicating with me! I had to email them to find out if they'd gotten my parental consent form in the post, 2 weeks after they should've told me. I'd highly appreciate an email, thank you!

    That's terrible! I don't understand why they haven't contacted you. Enclosed are all the emails and documents that have been sent to me, if need be I can give you my email through private message and forward the emails directly but everything is in the attachments
    Thanks a lot! I really appreciate this.

    Hi Shivtek,

    Please can you private message me your full name and email address so that I can check we have correct record of your contact details?

    Wondering if anyone would be interested in a game of Uno.
    Throwing that out there in hope that someone says yes because I still have my two decks from 7 years ago.

    Sounds like a good idea, at least they'll get some use.

    Do you have any ideas of what you're wearing to the fancy dress party? I have no clue!

    Fancy dress that's so cool! We only had disco and outdoor games. The games were fun but the disco was dead...

    Hi PoppyandPebbles,

    It's great to hear you've applied for our Summer University Experience! :five:

    The closing date for applications for this year is 25th April, so you'll hear back about it some time after then. The fab team who run the event will definitely be in touch with you to let you know whether or not you're successful, so just keep an eye on your emails/phone!

    Have you applied for the Arts or the Science residential?

    Hi Summer! Ah I'm so relieved! I thought the closing date was at the end of March so was concerned whether I was accepted or not. I was hoping to attend the Arts residential as this would aid my knowledge and application for the English and Music course.
    Thank you for replying so promptly!

    Hi Amy,

    Great to hear you're feeling calmer about it! We definitely won't leave you in the lurch about it, and will let you know asap. Awesome to hear you already know what subject you want to do - do you play a specific instrument?

    The residentials are really fun - I've worked a few as a student ambassador, and wish I'd known they were a thing when I was applying! You get to try out loads of different subject sessions and live on campus. If I remember correctly some of the evenings we ran silly quizzes and movie nights, and it's just generally a great time.

    Haha, one of my biggest flaws is to overly stress! That's fantastic, I play the flute! I'm doing my grade 8 next month, then moving on to my diploma. OMG I love quizzes!! Can't wait!
