Furness College

Trev’s Times – WEEK ELEVEN

HELLO!! Welcome back you lovely lot, I hope you have all had a well deserved break and are ready to get back into campus life!

First off let’s deal with the elephant in the room… At the end of last term we said a tearful goodbye to our College Manager, Bev and a happy hello to our new College Manager, Jo! But with Bev goes Bev’s Hills and so say hello to our new newsletter, Trev’s Times!

Refreshers

What would the start of a new term be if we didn’t have some events for you? It’s time to refresh those fresher’s week vibes! We’ll let you get yourselves (and those week 1 essays) settled first but on Wednesday we are bringing a storm to your week!

Wednesday: Quiz Night
Before our big night on Wednesday we won’t be forgetting our weekly Quiz Night! This week’s theme is Lancashire so be sure to brush up on all your Lancs knowledge.
Wednesday: Back to School
On Wednesday night we’ll be throwing it back to our school days with a Back to School themed mini-crawl. Meet in Trev at 9pm in your best uniform, from there we will head down to Dalton Rooms before we end in Sugar.
Thursday: Movie Night
After a big night on Wednesday it’s time to get some relaxation in with our Movie Night before Friday comes around! Don’t forget to vote for your preferred movie in our poll HERE and then head to Furness TV Room for 7pm on Thursday to settle down with some blankets and snacks!

Gin Fest

It’s back and better than ever… The annual Gin Fest taking place in Trev is returning SOON! With over one hundred different kinds of gin, a selection of signature cocktails and the best live music and entertainment.

Old to New

We would also like to say a huge thank you to the JCR before us, we know how hard you worked last year and all of Furness wish you the best!

That’s all from us this week folks, have a good one and I will see you all in week twelve!
