Online PR News – 11-September-2010 – – Students from Stoke on Trent College kick-off the start of their studies in style with a fun-packed Freshers’ Fair, which outlines the lifestyle benefits of further education and highlights important social, financial and healthcare advice.
Over two days, students will be flocking to sports halls at the Burslem and Cauldon campuses to learn more about the opportunities college life presents.
Companies including Cocoa Cola and Alton Towers will be on hand with giveaways and competitions – while hands-on activities including a bungee run and climbing wall emphasise the sporting opportunities further education can offer.
Representatives from the National Union of Students will also be giving advice on the types of discounts available to those attending college, and external agencies will be explaining the easy access to health services, financial guidance and other support groups available.
The Freshers’ Fair takes place at Stoke on Trent College’s Cauldon Campus on Wednesday, September 15 and at the Burslem Campus on Thursday, September 16. Both events run from 10am until 2pm.
Emma Moseley, Stoke on Trent College’s Student Union and Wider Activities Co-ordinator, said: “Freshers’ Fair is a great introduction to college life. It’s a vibrant and lively event for all college students, particularly the 16 to 19-year-olds.”
