ENGINE SHED TO STAR IN FRESHERS’ WEEK

 

Around 3,000 new students are expected to arrive at the University of Lincoln this weekend for the start of the new academic year.

 

A week of events has been planned to make sure the new students settle in quickly, but

the university’s Students’ Union has also been working hard over the summer to maintain positive relationships between the students and the local community.

 

The Respect initiative will be launched next week to make new students aware of the  new and established campaigns encouraging them to respect themselves, each other and the local community.

 

The Shhh! Campaign is being re-launched next week to encourage students to show consideration for their neighbours, especially late at night and in the small hours when problems can occur.

 

“The Students’ Union has produced informative leaflets, flyers and beer mats to promote the campaign,” said SU President Leanne Goodwin.

 

“As well as liaising regularly with local residents’ associations, the SU is also working very closely with the management team of the Engine Shed to ensure that students act responsibly and keep noise to a minimum while leaving the new venue.”

 

The Engine Shed, the university’s new Ł6 million student centre, is the star attraction of Freshers’ Week.

 

Indie favourites Embrace will open the venue on Monday 18th September and other bands including The Zutons, The Beautiful South and The Charlatans will appear this autumn.

 

But the venue will also play host to a number of other Freshers’ Week events, including

Freshers’ Fair, the Athletic Union Fair and the Freshers’ Welcome Party.
