Freshers’ Week 2013

Behind the Scenes, November 5, 2013

The weather is getting worse and worse. Sunny (well… perhaps let’s use the word ‘pleasant’) September is now a thing of the past. Yes, this can only mean one thing – autumn is in its full swing and your coursework deadlines are probably close enough to send you in a state of panic. That being said, why not sit back and look fondly at the Freshers’ Week 2013: a time when we only had to debate on a choice of a post-QMU/GUU takeaway meal, not essay topics? GUST sure misses those times!

At the GUU, we interviewed headliners We Were Promised Jetpacks and spoke to lots of lovely Freshers during Takeover which saw the entire building transformed into a club. Jameela Jamil also performed!

At the QMU, we caught up with Scott Mills and That Drummer That DJ who both played amazing sets for packed-out Qudos.

Unfortunately Freshers’ Week had to come to an end, as all good things tend to.
