Milton Keynes College welcomes new students at Freshers Fair
Milton Keynes College welcomed its new cohort of 16-18 students with an exciting Freshers Fair event. Happening at the College’s Chaffron Way campus on 6th September and its Bletchley campus on 7th September, the events were designed to welcome new and returning students, offer information about societies and clubs they could join, signpost them to any additional support services and host local stakeholders who can also offer their support.
The stands included the College’s music, LGBTQ+ and sports societies as well as the student council. Plus, outside organisations including Thames Valley Police, the Terrence Higgins Trust and Milton Keynes City Council were on hand to talk to students about the support they can offer.
New learners could also enjoy music performances from current students and complimentary mocktails and food from the College’s student-run restaurant, the Brasserie.
Jack Maude, Personal Development Lead at Milton Keynes College Group said: “We’re so pleased with the fantastic turnout for our Fresher’s Fair events, both at our Chaffron Way and Bletchley campuses. It’s very important for us to not only support our learners with their studies, but also to encourage them to be part of the wider community at the College and in Milton Keynes as a whole. That’s why we wanted to show them the huge range of clubs, societies and groups that they can get involved in at the College, as well as the support services from both inside and outside the College that can help them if they need extra support.
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the colleagues who helped to make the day such a success. The Fresher’s Fair was an amazing way to kick off the 2023/24 academic year, and we can’t wait to see what great things are students achieve with their studies and beyond.”
