Mentor Training, Moving in Weekend, Welcome Week…

It’s been a very busy but brilliant couple of weeks with training our 2017/18 cohort of 58 Student Life Mentors who started proactively visiting their student mentees to assist them as necessary over Moving in Weekend, alongside running tours, assisting with welcome talks and generally being happy, smiley and helpful. For the first time, this year we also ran a hugely popular (with around 300 students in attendance) welcome event with colleagues in the Students’ Union and University of Surrey Lettings for our students living in the local community or commuting from further afield.

Welcome Week was the busiest and best ever we think! With 12 ‘Welcome to Surrey’ talks, attracting around 3,600 students to watch, listen to and join in with the first welcome talk of it’s kind at Surrey. We Facebook-live streamed the last presentation, with to date over 800 views!

So a hugely successful couple of weeks, and into Semester 1 week 1 we go… 🙂
