Welcome to the new freshers joining us in October! The hard part- getting in to the best college- is over, and you’re probably all raring to go for Freshers’ Week 2014.
If you’d like to know more about what to expect in Cambridge and meet other freshers, a good place to start is at a Welcome To Cambridge event. These events are known informally as “freshers’ parties” and happen around the country and internationally in the lead up to matriculation in October. You’ll be in Cambridge for the next 3/4/1,000,000 years (sorry medics) so learning a bit about the place before you arrive and meeting your fellow first-years can get you off to a flying start. All the events are organised by Cambridge alumni who have experienced tripos and will be able to answer any questions you might have and put your mind at ease if you’re a bit nervous.
Have a look at the timetables and invitation from the alumni below, and if you’ve any questions, please email Jennie Hastie at Jennie.Hastie@admin.cam.ac.uk
