President, Sport gives her thoughts on WelcomeFest
There's so much going on over WelcomeFest, it can get overwhelming. To help you pick out some highlights to focus on, Sian Doherty, your President, Sport goes talks us through her WelcomeFest experiences so far!

When was your first WelcomeFest?

My first WelcomeFest was in 2015 (I know, I’ve been here for a while!). I can remember going to the sports fair and it was absolutely buzzing with teams and students and music. The atmosphere was exactly what I hoped it would be!

Which events are you most looking forward to this year?

Obviously the sports fair as it’s a chance for all our sports teams to be in one place and show what a wide range of teams we have here at Hull! I’m also looking forward to all the Give it a Go sessions (including all the non-sports ones) as they are a great place to meet new people.

Describe WelcomeFest in three words:

Exciting, jam-packed, electric.

Top tips for students who haven't been to a WelcomeFest yet:

Throw yourself into it as much as possible! If you have no one to go to an event with don’t let that put you off because you don’t know who you’re going to meet.
