Both new and returning students welcomed to campus at City’s Welcome Week

By Matthew Little (Communications Officer), Published

With both in-person and online activities, the jam-packed week allowed City students to attend events including: open top bus tours, film screenings, gaming tournaments, virtual wellbeing classes, society socials and more.

As part of Welcome Week, City partnered with Camden Council and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), to provide a vaccine bus giving students the opportunity to receive their first or second jab of the Pfizer vaccine for free.

Welcome Week at City

The main highlight of the week was the City Students’ Union’s Welcome Fair 2021, held at CitySport’s hall – where there were over 100 student societies available to join.

Students were asked to book their space for the fair and encouraged to wear face coverings and use the hand sanitiser provided.
Commenting on the buzz on campus were two new first-year students, Tracey Fernando and Shazra Singh (LLB Law).

I am so excited to be on campus! University is a great time to make new friends and memories and after a year of doing our A-levels online, it feels great to be here in person and get that sense of community.

– Tracey Fernando (LLB Law)

We’ve heard great things about the Law School so feel very pleased to be here. We both hope to become barristers and are now ready to work hard to make that come true.

Welcome Week at City

While new students were busy settling in, returning students were ready to build their societies. Representing the Fencing Society was City graduate, Hadyeh Baghbadarani (LLB Law):

The pandemic was difficult for student societies because it limited how much we could do together. We still did online events, but in person is so much better.

When I first came to City I joined the beginners fencing course with the society and met a whole bunch of people who became friends. It is a great sport to get involved in and really helps improve your concentration.

If you want to try something new, meet fellow students and make new friends then the fencing society is a great place to be.
