Warrington Collegiate has welcomed hundreds of new students to its campus over the past week. The weather has been stunning for the start of term and has added to the really positive atmosphere here at the College.
As well as getting to grips with their college course new students were able to enjoy themselves with a live DJ, a fun photo booth and, the highlight of the week, Freshers Fair on Friday 4th September.
As well as the fantastic activities and stands from Warrington Collegiate, organisations such as Mars Chocolate, Chicago Town Pizzas, Lucozade, Pure Gym, Knights American Cheer ( cheerleading and dance), Cheshire Youth United ( volunteering), Golden Square, Network Warrington, Liverpool County FA, Widnes Wild Superblades were on hand to get students involved in the busy and vibrant student life at Warrington Collegiate.
Students enjoyed having a go at Boogie Bounce, sampling the delights of Chicago Town Pizza and Urbaneat, taking the coffee cup challenge and the braver ones testing their fitness at the college sports stand.
The Student Union team was kept busy signing students up to the college clubs, societies and sports activities including the fantastic sports, gym and dance opportunities at the fantastic new ‘state of the art’ facilities at Orford Jubilee Park.
Organiser, Jordan Layfield, College Sports Maker, at Warrington Collegiate explains “I’m delighted that a record number of NUS cards were sold this year, which demonstrates a real interest in the College Student Union and its activities. It always a great day seeing the students enjoying having fun as well as signing up for the events and activities we offer to students at Warrington Collegiate. Always popular is the annual trip to New York to discover the bright lights of the Big Apple. The Freshers Fayre is just one of a bundle of events taking place at the college this week to welcome new students.”
Students can find out more about the exciting range of vocational courses, apprenticeships, professional qualifications and higher education at the Open Evening and skills Show on Monday 12th October, 5-7.30pm
