Bev’s Hills – Week 1

Good Morning Furness!

Welcome to the exciting, beautifully composed, critically acclaimed newsletter Beverley’s Hills!

My terrible joke of the week:
If cattle had a sense of humour, would they be a laughing stock?

Furness Freshers 2013

Furness became home to 378 new freshers this year and what a week they’ve give us! From the first night new furnessians were getting acquainted with the college chants, and one lucky lady got more than acquainted with the Furness TV Room. Monday night quickly followed with a ghost walk, though you can’t get much more scary than Cartmel girls. After, the paint party in elements, for many the first taste of Lancaster nightlife (and UV paint).

Tuesday was home to the campus bar crawl ending in Cartmel with the silent disco. Wednesday was equally as silent at the movie night without a movie. Thursday brought Her Majesty the Queen (well kind of) to Furness foyer as the official pre-tea before the big night out in Lancaster!  If you could hack it Friday brought the delights of Hustle and Lounge. Saturday everybody scrubbed up well and was looking good for the James Bond casino ending in Elements. Sunday meant the last day of freshers a tons of bbq on the (not so) sunny Windermere boat trip. Afterwards there was a cracking turn-out at the pub quiz, where “All credit to Zoe” won the £50 cash prize and VIP booth in Elements. “Flat 7 sucks” did indeed suck and came in last place.
