    My sister has friend who is going to Kings in September, and she seemed to think there is a "Freshers Fortnight" as well. Maybe we have double the fun to look forward too!!!!

    hehe, it has always been Freshers Fortnight at Kings!!

    You have the benefits of both the Guys and Strand Campus freshers events which often compete with each other, as well as Halls events too!

    Make sure you gatecrash Hampstead and KCH etc events if you have nothing else planned for the night

    KCH is pretty wicked socially. Make sure you go to the badge party at the strand, and also anything to do with law freshers' is good... Café de Paris last year was awesome. :cool:

    Do law students get their own freshers activities as well?

    Yep, there was a law freshers thing at the world famous (and very very classy) Café de Paris last year. Law people also have a law ball at The Savoy hotel, but that isn't until the second semester.

    KCH is great - Wolfson sucks.

    Doesn't look great, but KCH is amazing underneath it all. It has a bar and common room for meeting people, pool room, table tennis, sky TV room, squash, full size snooker... There's even a projector in the common room. It basically all makes for a better all round university halls experience which you won't get in Stamford Street of Great Dover Street, despite being much more modern and nicer aestetically.

    Well, I havent put any of them at the top of my form. My first choice was, the seemingly forgotten, Brian Creamer House. I'm sure, although being arranged like a smaller version of traditional halls, its probably not got the same "buzz" about it as the bigger halls have. However, 67 people housed on two floors - people must surely get to know each other quite well.

    Do you make a lot of friends through doing law (at the various events and lectures), or is it mostly in your accommodation??

    I'm sorry, you've got the impression I do law - I just went to the events because I have a lot of law friends who got me tickets!

    I would say i've made about 25% of my friends on my course, and 75% of people are who I live(d) with.

    The Ex-president David Dunne is a great bloke. I knew him before he became president. Very easy to tell he his talented but he is down to Earth and humble at the same time... charismatic.

    The current ULU president (Chris Piper), an ex-president of KCL, ditto.

    I'm doing law too and staying at Great Dover Street - I was worried that I might be the only lawyer amongst many, many medics and science-y people! (Not that that's bad - but was worried I wouldn't meet anyone from the course in the first few days of living there).
