Freshers’ Festival is Back, and FRESHER Than Ever!

The countdown is on until the biggest student party returns! You turned up in your thousands last year and did us proud by stripping the SECC bare of every freebie in sight. We’re not sure if we could pick just one highlight: from the Inbetweeners car and MacBook Pro prize giveaways to mountains of free pizza and “great” karaoke renditions, we’re STILL recovering from all of the excitement. But don’t think we’ve just been chillaxing since September – we’ve been busy behind the scenes getting prepped yet another noisier, bigger and busier year of Freshers’ Fest, and we’re delighted to be bringing Scotland’s best fest back to Glasgow’s mighty SECC.

Whether you’re the freshest fresher around or are on old hack at this uni thing now, absolutely all students are welcome to come and fill their boots (and bags and buckets too) with as many goodies as possible. Experience two days crammed full of giveaways, discounts and experiences from clubs, bars, restaurants, retail, employment, gaming, music and a few extra surprises too. We’ll be announcing VIP goodies and spotlight competitions in the run up to the big day, so keep the Freshers’ Festival website bookmarked and don’t be that guy who is always the last to find out about the good stuff.

No matter what you’re on the hunt for, we’ve covered all the bases, whether its employment info, fantastic freebies, delectable discounts, new connections, huge prize giveaways or unique music and entertainment acts. In essence, it’s the ultimate chance to kick-off a new academic year in style. You might even spot one of the Scotcampus team attempting karaoke…

So stay tuned over the next few months for a full list of exhibitors (and their freebies!), main stage acts and exclusive competitions. Don’t miss out of the chatter and join in the bants over on Twitter too. @FreshersFest
