I hope you are all having an amazing summer and are getting super excited to come to Southampton in September. Honestly you’ll love it! But before you come there are a few things we would like you to do.
First of all find ES Socials on Facebook and add them, this is how the Environmental Science Student Society (ESSS) organise their socials, so unless you are friends with them you may not hear about the socials we are organising for you all. Talking about socials DON’T forget fancy dress! We will be having fancy dress socials and there is no point splashing out on more outfits if you already have some. So bring you fancy dress outfits and prepare for an amazing ES social in freshers week where you can meet the rest of your course mates from all years and us, the committee.
To get discounted socials and to become part of your course society you will need to become a member, and this does come at a small cost of £15 for the entirety of the course, which is much better than many other societies. This gets you a wristband to show you are part of the society, and many discounts so you will more than make up your £15 over the three years. We will be coming into your lectures in the first few weeks of the term to collect member ship but if you want to get paying for it over and done ASAP please send a cheque made payable to: Environmental Science Student Society, with your name written clearly on the back and send it to:
Environmental Science Student Society
University of Southampton
During Freshers week you will have lots of opportunities to meet everyone; the bun fight is a good time to meet your committee. We will have a stall there so look out for us. For more information follow @UoSES on twitter for regular updates.
Don’t worry about the books you will need for the course, you will be told about them in your first few lectures and we will be holding a book sale so you can buy all the books you need and don’t need to splash out on brand new ones.
If you are an international student you will have a chance to meet our two international officers during international welcome week to welcome you all warmly.
So add ES Socials now, gather your fancy dress and prepare for an amazing year at Southampton University. Super looking forward to meeting you all!
