Welcome Week: the action in pictures


A warm Welcome to all our new students

From Zorb balls to Spiderman via a handful of foam fingers, this year’s Welcome Week was a triumph of colourful fun across all three campuses.
In Colchester, students got their first taste of the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall at the official Welcome Talks, packing out the lecture theatre and learning some important tips to surviving their first week. The squares were full of stalls including a street market while the Arts office entertained with everything from Mexican Morris dancing, to a giant campus map.
In Southend student teams took part in the Befriend Southend Challenge which took them around the town hunting for clues including spotting a familiar-looking Spiderman. Their challenge was rounded off at the Freshers’ Fair, which offered chicken and pizza to the hungry masses while they shopped around finding out about all the myriad clubs and societies on offer.
Our Loughton students have been getting stuck into their studies from the off. Having arrived a little earlier, they have been getting involved in their induction programmes and attending departmental talks.
A big shout also goes out to all our volunteers, helpers, student mentors, ambassadors, frontrunners and everyone who gave their time and energy to help make this one of the most vibrant and well attended Welcome Weeks ever.
See the evidence for yourself in our Welcome Week photos.
