The first week is a very busy time as there are lots of events on offer and contacts to make in College and in your Department or Faculty. The MCR Committee organises a range of social events, so that you get to know the College and your fellow MCR members. Do come along and get involved: you won’t regret it! A timetable of Freshers events will be in your pigeonhole when you arrive in College. On the first Saturday of Term there will be welcome drinks in the MCR and on the first Sunday there will be a welcoming cocktail party for all new graduates in College. The following Friday, The Master and Fellows of the College invite all incoming graduate students to the Matriculation Dinner in Hall.
The University sports clubs and societies hold a fair in the first week at Kelsey Kerridge Sports Hall, which is beside Parkers Piece in the centre of Cambridge. There you will have the chance to join whatever groups take your fancy. Full information is available at http://www.sport.cam.ac.uk and http://www.cam.ac.uk/societies.
