Freshers’ Festival is Back: The Biggest Student Event of the Year

As you’ll know Freshers’ Festival has dominated our student calendars by providing the crème de la crème of the city’s finest eateries, fashion brands, clubs, pubs, accommodation, job opportunities and more! This is why we’re psyched to announce the long-awaited return of the biggest and best event of the year.

After swarming George Square in their thousands last year, weighed down with goodies and grasping fistfuls of pizza, the city saw students from all walks of life embrace the best of what Glasgow has to offer.

Freshers Festival 2017

This year’s extravaganza will take place once again at the iconic George Square, 20th and 21st September. As well as an eclectic showcase of the fiercest attractions and brands in the city, there’ll be unique interactive opportunities for networking, careers and personal development.

And what would the Freshers’ Festival be without the freshest freebies, competition prizes and entertainment? We already have an awesome array of goodies up our sleeves including the return of FREE Papa John’s pizza as well as prizes, discounts and offers from the coolest haunts in the city. If that’s not enough you’ll also get to soak up some sweet sounds with our live entertainment, get involved in our new experiential zones, fill your bags (and buckets) with freebies and get the chance to experience, discover and celebrate student life in Scotland’s most exciting city.

Exclusive prizes and freebies

Before Freshers Think Futures

While the Scotcampus Freshers’ Festival is a long way off we’ve got another youth orientated event for you guys to get excited about.

The Futures Fest takes place on Glasgow’s George Square on April the 27th and 28th and aims to showcase some of the awesome apprenticeship, education and employment options available to young people living in Scotland.

Spilt into several zones, the event will give 16-25 year olds the chance to learn more about what future opportunities and options are available to them. We hope that it’ll help to give youngsters the chance to make informed decisions on what steps they choose to take.

Alongside the exhibiting universities and employers we’ll also be including a selection of stands dedicated to those all important lifestyle issues. Here you’ll be able to find out about all of the best places for socialising as well as being able to gather info on healthy living and financial services.

We’re expecting 60+ exhibitors and have already confirmed some big names from the fast moving renewable energies and gaming sectors.

So if you’re wondering what to do after you graduate, or don’t know if university is for you, pencil in this new event and see what amazing options are available to you right here in Scotland.

The Futures Fest, George Square, Glasgow 27th and 28th of April 2012. Click here for more details.
