What's on during Freshers' Week?
|A welcome from the Provost. Please attend on Monday 3rd if your surname begins with A-L, or on Wednesday 5th if it is M-Z
|General Orientation Sessions
|These sessions will cover student supports and services, how we do things at Trinity and key information to survive your first couple of weeks (where to go, eat, drink, how to manage your money, and, of course, how to study). You must attend both sessions as they cover different things.
|Course Orientation Meeting
|This session is given by your School to take you through the academic expectations of the year. You’ll get a chance to meet some of your lecturers, and find out what kind of classes you’ll be taking and how you will be assessed
|S2S Mentor Tour
|Your S2S mentor is a really important person in your first year. They are older students in your course who will meet you to take you on a campus tour, and show you around the Library and Sports Centre, as well as answer all the questions you have about being a student in Trinity. Your mentor will give you a wristband for you to collect your ID card and get your free re-usable water bottle on the tour so it’s really important to attend.
|Optional Lunchtime Talks
|Lunchtime talks about the Students' Union, Academic Skills, Looking After Yourself and Your Student Journey. These are optional events.
|You may have more events than these on your timetable, and if you do they are specific to your course. These are also compulsory.
