Walsall College marked the start of the 2016/17 academic year by launching its ‘Big Hello’ freshers’ fair on Wednesday 5th October, which took place at Wisemore Campus.
The event offered new and returning students the chance to find out about the range of free activities they can take advantage of, including volunteering, clubs, and free gym and sports activities.
A huge variety of information stalls were available during the week, including representatives from INTU Merry Hill, Aston Villa FC, Walsall Cooperative Food, IGLU Desserts and Frankie and Benny’s offering exclusive discounts.
As Walsall College is committed to supporting the health of our students, free information and advice on health services.
During the event, the college’s student experience team were encouraging students to get involved with college life, with a stand offering information on That Bit Extra, the Students’ Union, volunteering, the NUS Extra Discount Card and much more.
Helen Griffiths, Student Experience officer at Walsall College commented, “The Big Hello freshers’ fair was a fantastic success. It was an ideal opportunity for new students to meet each other and discover what Walsall College and the local area has to offer.”
