This has been an interesting week. I moved in on Sunday 16th of September, of which I was so please to have a lovely flat and flat mates. The next day I met my course leaders and fellow pupils.
To begin with on Monday the tutors spoke about the overview of the course and future activities. Then became the fun part; this included two balloons, one egg and several sheets of card. Our mission was to keep the egg whole for as long as possible when dropped from a height. I found a team then a table and began to assemble a form of parachute with our equipment provided.
When finished we congregated around the front so that the end products would be thrown from a height. The first round the designs were dropped, luckily ours survived but so did everyone’s egg. In the next round the eggs were thrown down and each round after that thrown with a greater force.
So far the day was going very well. It ended with a lecture with 200 other students by the dean of our university.
The next morning we had a bit more of a lay in, starting at 10 am instead of 9.45 am. Tuesday was used to present our summer projects. This was our “Me, Myself and I Presentation.” I was intrigued to find out what everyone’s interests are and who inspires them.
Wednesday was our freshers fayre at the other campus in Cyncoed. I believe I signed up to three different clubs.
Thursday, this was filled with information to prepare us all for the year. Some information included how to use moodle, what our day to day expectations were and the introduction of constellation. This all filled me with hope for my future experiences.
