Cambridge University Freshers' Events

Alumni and current students are helping new students prepare for Cambridge this summer
Around the world in August and September, Alumni Groups will be hosting pre-arrival 'Freshers' Events' for new undergraduate and postgraduate students coming to Cambridge this autumn.
These optional events are a great opportunity for new students to prepare for university and make some friends before they arrive. Newcomers will meet current students and alumni, from whom they can get tips and advice for living and studying at Cambridge.

How you can help
Over 40 Alumni Groups will be hosting a Freshers' Event this summer. If your Group is interested in hosting an event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We are keen to hear from current students and recent alumni interested in attending one of this year’s Freshers' Events (listed below) to welcome attendees, share your experiences of living and studying in Cambridge and answer their questions. This is great opportunity to make a direct and considerable difference towards helping new students prepare for university, and to widen your networks with students and alumni.
