Welcome is an overwhelming time for a student. There are many events going on every single day and it can easily become stressful. As Officers, we have had the opportunity to experience one or more Welcome periods, so we would like to think we are slowly becoming professionals! (especially after being able to plan them this year). Below, we will offer you a list of things that ensure you get the most out of this year's Welcome. 

Take it easy, it last for four weeks!

For the first time this year, we are offering a four-week long Welcome. With our university having a strong international student community, we found that many are not able to attend Welcome Week events due, to not yet arriving to Coventry. Considering this, we have extended the one-wee-long Welcome, to a four-week-long one, to ensure every single student is able to enjoy the events offered.  

Enjoy the freebies!

Guess what? When you show up at these Welcome events, you're in for a treat – a whole bag of goodies, up for grabs for every student. Talk about a win-win! Join up with the communities and get yourself some great stuff (including Pronoun badges, tote bags, lanyards, and more).

Officer event tips

Speaking of awesome stuff, we've got some fantastic Officer Events in the works. Here's the insider tip: plan out your outfits, people! We've got a Grill and Chill day event going at HUB Roof terrace on Friday 15 September, so bring on those comfy, vibrant threads. But hold up, the Wrap Up party on Wednesday 4 October is a whole different ballgame – it's gonna be glam central, especially since there's going to be a rocking dance floor. 

Now, here's the icing on the cake – both these events are packing photobooths. That means you and your new squad can strike a pose and get clicked in your favourite outfits. Ready to make some memories? Let's do this! 

Check the website and Instagram for regular updates on events
