Your Students’ Union
Welcome Week 2015
As a Bangor student you are automatically a member of Bangor Students’ Union. This allows you to take part in everything we have to offer and benefit from the representational work that we do. Our job is to make sure you have a great time here in Bangor.
We're really excited that you will be joining us in September and we have been working hard over the summer to ensure that you have the best possible time during welcome week and throughout your time as a Bangor student.
What to expect in Welcome Week
Students’ Union Heroes are here to help you move in during Welcome Week. We’ve got a load of students on hand throughout the week to make sure that you have the best time possible.
Arriving by Train?
We’ll meet you at the station! On arrivals weekend, we’ll be running shuttle busses from the station to all different halls of residences, to save you carrying all your bags up Bangor’s divine hills.
When you get to the halls...
Student Heroes will be out and about volunteering to help carry your belongings inside. Whether you’re by the front door or on the top floor, our Heroes will give you a hand to get everything into your room!
During Welcome Week
means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful without looking for it. Serendipity is the Bangor SU Welcome Week fair held in PJ Hall. If you’ve not heard of these before you’re in for a treat! For 2 days during Welcome Week we’ll be gathering over 100 societies, over 50 sports clubs, and more than 30 different volunteering projects, not to mention local businesses who are all looking to give you freebies and vouchers as well as the opportunity to sign up to represent Bangor in a society or club! You can also pick up your Love Bangor card.
There will be plenty more activities to get involved with throughout Welcome Week - keep your eyes peeled!
