Reading Time: 2 minutes

The last seven days have seen an incredible Freshers’ week, and we can’t thank you all enough for your enthusiasm (both Freshers and returning students for working hard) that went into making this happen. Here’s a round-up of some of the best and biggest events…


Monday saw the Treasure Hunt during the daytime, with loads of great prizes up for grabs.

Any of the prizes catching your eye? There's all this and more to win! Come and try your luck! #hellosusu

The Student Survival Day arrived with great support from The Advice Centre & Nightline and a visit from the ICE Bus (In Case of Emergency bus) – as well as charities such as Coppafeel and Sexpression!

The fire brigade will also dropped by to teach us the importance of fire safety with live chip pan fire demonstrations!

Midday on Tuesday saw the Circus Skills random happening on the grass outside the Stag’s; thanks to everyone who got involved!
