Last 2 weeks before Christmas holidays🎄💫🎊

Hello everyone!

Can’t believe it’s been 10 weeks in uni now and Christmas is nearly here! Last couple of weeks in uni are the most fun ones yet the the most stressful ones for some. With lots of exciting entertainment-events happening on and off campus, there are deadlines building up.

The Union has organised a competition “Best Xmas-Decorated kitchen”  and it was very exciting to see how creative people were with their decorations. Everyone tried to keep their budget quite low so some people ended up wrapping their entire kitchen in Christmassy wrapping paper.  Others used fake snow, tinsel and Christmas lights. Prize for the winners was a whole flat Christmas dinner.

Winter Fest took place on the 14th of December in a marquee by the Cathedral. It was open to all staff and students. The event included guaranteed snow and free glitter face painting, live entertainment including The University of Surrey Big Band, The Musical Theatre Society, and The Vet School Choir, Christmas Market with over 20 stalls selling everything from delicious Christmas cakes and beautiful candles, to fused glass jewellery and heated indoor slippers, hot food vans, opportunity to enjoy some spiced cider, mulled wine and mince pies, Steve the Stag, festive photo booth.
Last week introduced two unforgettable rubix events – SU Snow Citrus Takeover and Flirt! Christmas party. The stage was properly decorated with Christmassy stuff as well as Christmas trees and a Santa, sitting on a bench, taking pictures with anyone who came up on the stage. Music was absolutely amazing too and it was fascinating to see people’s costumes for both Friday and Wednesday nights. No doubt, Christmas atmosphere is going to last for another couple of weeks until actual Christmas!

People now start to leave university for Christmas and it feels a bit odd for some. Where has all the time gone?! Feels like freshers week was just yesterday! Anyway, we are all really looking forward to coming back although it is going to be  exam time almost as soon as we come back but there are still so many intriguing events to come!

Hope you are all having a wonderful time at home with your families and friends! Merry Christmas to you all and a very Happy New Year!🎄✨💫🎊🎁

Until next time!
