For your first week at University, the Saturday marks an important day. It is peppered with important decisions. It could change your live. It is a path choice. You’re standing at the fork and which tong do you go down…
Right enough with the over exaggeration. Freshers fair isn’t that intimidating. But it does give you new fresh meat the opportunity to start your University life with joining a society, band, sorority (I wish) and club. Members of YUSU will believe they are politely asking you to join their group of band wagons, but I can assure you it will feel like you’re signing a contract for life with a gun aimed at your head. This is not true- although it may seem so.
Staying calm is the key. All of you I have no doubt are familiar with the scene in Mean girls of the African water hole? Yes, no, maybe? Well that is not the game plan you should go with at this fair. What you should do is casually walk into the James college sport tent and stroll over to the University of York Hockey table, pick up the sponsored 01904 656565 pen and write your name down.
The hockey club, or UYHC (meaning both University of York Hockey Club and Unique York Havoc Crew) is one table at freshers fair that will not disappoint you. Whether you’re a social members or a full blow awesome/sick/incred hockey player with mad skills or never picked up a hockey stick in your entire life- you’ll all be welcomed into the warm bosom of University life and we’ll give you the guidelines and instructions of how to bring out the best of your time in York. From the best smoothie/vegan restaurants, to the best treble deals in the city and from the short cuts in town to the short cuts in revision.
There are many things at University that one may regret- that extra shot, that night when you really shouldn’t have gone out or that module choice that was quite frankly utter b***s***, but joining UYHC will be a decision you’ll never look back on. Give it a go. Dip your toes into this pool and go with it! We’ll be seeing you on Saturday, in the sports tent at the UYHC table of legends in September.
