Getting used to a new environment is not always easy but the best way is to get involved.
There are a range of volunteer opportunities, both one-off and longer-term with local charities.
You can build up your volunteering hours towards an award. There are also opportunities wth the Student Union, just pop into their office or check out their website, Facebook Page or Twitter to find out how to become a Student Rep, join or start a society or club, volunteer with the Student Union, or get involved in their events!
The Chaplaincy also has a range of volunteering opportunities and holds regular social events for students. Many of the events they hold are not faith related, but they always include food! More details can be found on their Facebook Page.
Look out for new opportunities during Welcome Week!
