Goodricke Fresher Week!

Sorry I missed last week but last weekend was one of the biggest weekends of my life so far. On the 27th September 2014 I moved to York University. So the last week has been a whirl wind of freshers so here is what I have been up to.

Saturday 27th September 2014
I woke up early this day and packed up the car and I was off. We arrived at the university at 9.30, and then the carrying of all of the stuff that I had manged to ram in the car. We had lovely people called STYC's (Second and third year contacts), helping me carry all of my stuff up to my  floor on the second floor of the building. I have moved into a collage with in my university and I am in Goodricke collage. The rest of the after was spent making my room cosy and homely and then getting to know my flat mates.

At night this was the first event of the Goodricke freshers week. This was a first letter disco, and as my name is Emily I went as an elephant, it was a great first night getting to know people and being able to remember peoples names by what they dressed up as.
Elephant 'Emily'!

This day was filled with collage photos and health and safety talks which were compulsory but not the most interesting. The freshers event of this night was the Green Invasion. The colour of the collage is green so we put on our 'Goodricke till I die'. This was the first time we went out at night in York and we went on a club crawl, and I had a great night!

On the bus!

Today we were welcomed by the VC of the uni and the leader of our student union YUSU! I cant say it was the most thrilling talk but it had some important information in it.

Tonight was Pub Golf, a pub crawl involving a game based on downing drinks. I however did not drink as I felt like I need a  break from Alcohol. I went along with my flat to all the bars/pub within the university campuses. When they were about to leave for town, me and another member of the flat decided to head back to our campus. We then instantly regretted this decision. as soon as we started walking the heavens opened and by the time we got back we were absolutely drench!
Before the rain came!
Tuesday 30th September 2014
I had my first departmental lecture/welcome to day, where we were given a very large text book and given a small tour of the department.

The event of the night was casino night at one of the nicest clubs in York, called Revolution. We first went to Bora Bora for starter cocktails and then moved on to Revs and it was a nice chilled out evening spent with the people from my flat.

Wednesday 31st September 2014
Today was the day when freshers flu hit most of us. Just getting the sniffles and feel just a little crappy. We all decided not to go out so when to the alternative freshers event of a quiz, where we came 4th one mark of 3rd and actually getting a prize!

Thursday 1st October 2014
Today I had a meeting with my supervisor who is super lovely and made me feel very comfortable and supported. Today also brought the start of my lectures, and was in then till 5pm. The event of the night was an Animal Crawl. As a flat we decided to go asa Zebras so i got my face paint out and transformed everyone into zebras.

Friday 2nd October 2014
The day was another day filled with working and lecture. This was the last night of the Goodricke organised events and the theme was end of the world! Yep so I got my face paint and fake blood out and turned everyone into Zombies!
Creepy? Right?!

Saturday 3rd October 2014
Today it was freshers fair! It was a really good experience, where you were able to sign up for different societies and sports. Then at night it was the fresher festival 'Live and Loud'. It was good with the line up including DJ Fresh! There was also a fire work display that looked absolutely amazing. It was a great night but it was really freezing cold!
Sunday 4th October 2014
Today is the day that I am posting this. I just want to say how good this week has been. I have moved to a place that I absolutely love. It is so quite peacful, green and beautiful. I feel so calm and relaxed here and a lot less paniky than I did when I was living at home. I can't wait to take some amazing photos and share them with you all.

OK I should be off know as tonight it is the comedy night with the main act as Josh Wittcombe and im now off into town.
