Hello and welcome to ARU London!
We’re excited to have you on board and hope you have enough time to get to know the Students’ Union – after all, we are run by students for students.
To help you settle into your first weeks at ARUL, we’ve put together a few events where you can get to know your course mates (or make a friend on another course), find out exactly what a Students’ Union is and what we can do for you, and have fun with people who are also starting a new journey alongside you.
Feel free to attend as many events as you please, or dip in and out when you can. If you can’t attend no worries; you can drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates. We’ll also be launching a competition exclusively for new starters on social media on Monday 10th January, so make sure you’re following both accounts to be in with a chance to win!
Welcome Week Schedule
Welcome Coffee & Chat
10th - 14th January, 3-4pm
An opportunity to meet and talk with our SU coordinators Izzy and Kseniia, and other students who are also starting their ARU journey in January 2022. Grab a coffee, or beverage of your choice, and prepare a few fun facts about yourself! There’ll also be a fun quiz at the end where you’ll have the chance to win Amazon vouchers.
Please note: we will run the same session every week day so you only need to attend once.
