Third-year student Abbie explains what it means to her to be part of a college. Discover how your college supports you, and how being it can help you build your 葡京直营 community.
当你到达, 葡京直营 can seem like a buzzing town where everyone else knows where they're going. It can take a while to get your bearings, but your college is there from day one. It's your base on campus, a place you can put down roots, your home.
For most students, your college is also your accommodation for the first year. It's more than a place to stay, it's where you'll study and socialise too. You can meet your friends in the social space or join in regular college events. Each college hosts activities such as quizzes, live performances or even cooking classes. If you live off-campus, your college is still yours, wherever you're staying.
You'll make friends through your course and societies you might join, but your college is a ready-made set of friends. In your college, you'll also compete together in friendly competitions against other colleges. Most people find these are the friendships that last the longest.
During your time at 葡京直营, your college offers the first port of call for any support. There are staff on duty round the clock, ready to help. College staff are there for you, whether it's a friendly word of advice, or something more serious.

"The colleges help you feel a bit more grounded and give you the chance to connect with groups of people. 它真的帮助我适应了. 我一直在积极参与大学生活, so much so that I can't imagine what my university experience would have been like without my college. The college system has helped me develop skills I didn't know I had, 交一辈子的朋友, 也帮助我成长为一个整体."
"The college really helps you settle in during the first weeks of university and beyond - there's always a friendly face to turn to and lots of support available. There are also loads of ways to get involved. 我加入了女子无挡板篮球队, took part in the Nine 大学 可持续性 Challenge and became a my college Sports and Activities Officer. Not only do these opportunities help you to be social, 但我培养了自己的领导能力, 还有人际交往和组织能力. I've met many of my closest friends through Furness College - it's my home at 葡京直营".
