Life at true: Term 1 Highlights!

Posted 23 Dec 2021

What. A. Term.

We couldn’t possibly explain everything that’s happened in the last few months, but we’ll give it a go! From moving in way back in September, to decking the halls (literally) in our latest extravaganza of Christmas events, it’s been a JOURNEY! Thanks for living the #trueLife with us and sharing your moments on social.

Here’s a look back on the good, the bad, and the ugly of TERM 1 at true! Congratulations, you completed it! Now use the holidays as a chance to chill out and switch off, before we return for another crazy semester…  

Back where it all began... check-in day! The nerves quickly disappeared as we got into the groove of #trueLife at all the fantastic welcome events. Water assault course? City bus tour? Gym inductions? Social mixers? You want it, we got it!

Now THAT'S what we call brunchin'


Next up, welcome parties! There was no way we weren't celebrating after a (mildly) stressful experience unpacking all our stuff...

Next up was Halloween season and did we go all out? We did! We might have only just recovered from our welcome parties, but we couldn't NOT throw another one for Halloween. We also decorated pumpkins and got in the mood with some chilled crafty sessions...

November saw us celebrate everything - Diwali, Bonfire Night, Thanksgiving and St Andrew's Day - literally everything. Cosy season was also in full swing, with plenty of cheese and wine nights, pamper evenings and chilled yoga sessions.

Hello skate season! This December we've definitely got into the Christmas spirit - from making decorations to watching Elf on repeat and having a festive Bake Off! 

Ready, Steady, Bake!

All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better first semester at uni. Bring on 2022 but for now, Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!
