Back in business…

Wow, it has been a long time since we last blogged, sorry! With the excitement of Christmas & the New Year, time has run away from us.

Following on from our last post, since then we have had a huge amount of snow, like most of the country did! Wellies, hats and scarves became ordinary items of my work outfits and the campus looked beautiful. Here are a couple of snaps…

Ice, ice, swan?

Six more sleeps to go…..

It’s snowing on our blog, but sadly not outside, where did the wintry weather and hopes of a white Christmas go?

White Christmas

White Christmas

The University and Student Support Centre seem to get quieter each day and makes us all wish we were students again for the long holidays and time to catch up with friends and family. The Outreach Team all finish at different times for Christmas due to annual leave and toil. Nicola will be the only one on Friday so fingers crossed it goes quickly for her; perhaps she’ll get to go home early as a nice Christmas surprise?!!

It must be Christmas time…..

Frosty! Wrap up warm!

Frosty! Wrap up warm!

X factor has finished, it must be nearly Christmas! (I didn’t follow it this year…but do we think James Arthur will be number one?!) Luckily, this is not the only indication; the weather is frosty and everywhere decorated with lights and of course, not forgetting Emma’s last post which made me feel really festive!

As easy as one….two….three….

Fresher’s week seems like a long time ago; we’re in to October with the shops beginning to prepare for Christmas already!

From the 17th September as all the new students started one of the most exciting weeks of  their University life,  the Outreach Team were busy all week helping the Student Administration department with enrolment of all students. The process this year was different with members of staff posted in twos all over the campus behind enrolment stands ready with two scanners to enrol people in less than a minute! Very high tech, easy as one, two, three…..we hoped!!!

Thinking of things to come…..

Where you want to be?

Hello!- I’m back! Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and making the most of the beautiful June weather, apparently we have one more day of sunshine before the rain!

This is, again, only a fleeting post as I have just got in from an event and am out all week with Marketing and my team members attending external UCAS events and representing the University.

Four become Two!

Our ideal audience setting

Hello from the last two standing!! The office has been struck by illness and Nicola and Matt have been taken down — we hope they’ll be back soon but for now you have Hannah and Emma- again! We’re sorry we didn’t manage to blog yesterday but we were in and out of the office and unexpectedly a team member short. Continue reading

Red, White and Blue

Hello!  I am currently blogging from a very patriotic, red, white and blue office. We were even treated to some delicious cupcakes yesterday courtesy of one of our Student Support colleagues, Sue! And Nicola, brought in some lovely chocolate biscuits today so a very indulgent week!

If you follow the blog, you’ll know that I am aiming to up my exercise and ensure that I don’t let my fellow Walk the World team mates down! Tuesday I walked in to work with Nicola, (2.7 miles each way according to Google maps). I have also scheduled an induction at the University gym for Thursday next week as unfortunately it was not possible this week, so small steps towards my goals. Continue reading
