Freshers are already beginning to arrive at the University. On Monday morning we meet our new students, our colleagues in learning. It is an exciting and anxious time all round. Will students feel at home? Will our lectures be ready for the first week of classes? Will it rain?
You may think that we are just arriving back ourselves after a long summer recess – on the contrary – but despite the hard work, September always energises us. For students, Induction week marks the beginning of three years of study in a new home town; for staff, the beginning of a productive, creative partnership. There’s a nice article in The Guardian that offers the staff perspective on Freshers’ week.
Have a great weekend. We’ll see you on Monday morning.
