Surrey university open day! 08/09/2012

Let me just say I have fallen in love with this university. Today I went with my dad to go and visit the university and I am impressed. Firstly at registration I was given a badge and a bag full of booklets about accommodation, student life and more. We decided to go and look at the accommodation on campus first. We didn't manage to visit all 5 buildings on campus but we went to two of them, Twyford court and Cathedral court. My favourite out of the two was Catherdral court because the bedroom was more spacious and you share with less people.

After looking at the accommodation we went to a talk on Economics. Economics students at Surrey have a great employability rate and I was impressed by how much in depth detail we were given about the subject. Today has taught me that it is really important that if you have a chance to go and visit the universities you want to apply to because it influences your decision a lot. After today I'm really fond about the idea of not going to a uni in London. I just love the atmosphere. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that after 2nd year we have to move out but apart from that I love Surrey :)

Quick update.

I just wanted to do a quick post on my first proper day at volunteering and college. I started two of my lessons today, Economics and Politics and I guess it went well. I've already been hit with homework so I guess it's time to start working hard. I also started my first volunteering session today. I had to sort out the clothing on the shop floor to match a certain colour scheme. It might sound boring but it was nice to receive positive feedback from the shop manager commending me for how quickly I've picked up things and how well I've done on my first day.

Tomorrow I am attending an open day at Surrey University so I will do a post on that.
