Your chance to make friends, have fun, and meet your Students’ Union.
Your Welcome Day
This is your chance to meet new people from all of the pre-degree courses on your campus, and get to know the Presidents who lead your Students’ Union.
There will be activities running 10am-4pm, and you can book your 2-hour slot to guarantee a space. On the day you can:
Add to the graffiti wall
Make your own viral TikTok-inspired crafts
Put Presidents in the Hot Seat
Complete creative challenges and win prizes
There is a mixture of solo and team activities, but you’ll be grouped at random so you don’t have to worry if you don’t know anyone else on your course yet.
This is the start of your UCA experience – make the most of it!
