Welcome Freshers’!!! Firstly I just want to say a HUGE congratulations for getting a place here at DMU – it’s a great place to study and there’s always something going on for everyone.
It’s not long now until you’ll be arriving to your new home for the next how ever many years your course is. I know when I first came to DMU as a student myself I couldn’t contain my excitement, but there was always that little part of me that was worried about making friends and finding my way around a new city that I’d hardly spent any time in beforehand. I understand that coming to a new place can be daunting but that’s why DSU are here, and we’ve got a really exciting campaign, with a brilliant bunch of prizes for you guys to win - but you’ll have to find out what they are at our Love Leicester fair on the Tuesday during Freshers’ Week (29th September).
#LoveLesta is all about integrating you guys into your new community, from international students, to students who have moved an hour down the road. During our Freshers’ Week events we are running a Love Leicester day on Tuesday the 29th of September at DSU from 10-4. It’s a day where you will be able to embrace your new community and find out what Leicester has to offer you in terms of opportunities, to de-stress and have fun.
We’ve got a really exciting competition for you running on that day, not only do you get to know your surrounding
s through it you get to win some amazing prizes for you and your team to enjoy and get to know each other better. In teams you will have to find your way to certain points/organisations in Leicester and collect proof you have been there, the team that does it in the quickest time, the team with the most creative photo and the team with the most creative team name will win a hamper to share full of goodies. Some might include:
- Vouchers for many different stores/restaurants
- Tickets to a Leicester City game
- Tickets to a Leicester Riders game
- Tickets to Leicester Racecourse
- Tickets to a choice of your show at The Cookie
- Gold Cards for Free Entry to Injunction Wednesday all year at the SU
- Some yummy goodies
And lots more... (but sssh, I wasn’t meant to give you a sneak peak!)
So come along to our Love Leicester fair on Tuesday the 29th in the Campus Centre! We will be holding more events like this throughout the year so keep your eyes peeled.
You will also receive an awesome Love Lesta T-Shirt for taking part (while stocks last!) – you won’t find anything like them! (I mean, look how happy these guys are wearing them!)
Looking forward to meeting you all!!!
