Fresher’s fair is a crazy few days.
I remember walking around with a bag full of free branded stuff, Dominos in hand and leaving with a membership to the following societies (none of which I went to):
The Chocolate society
The Caving society
The Ultimate Frisbee society
The Flair bartending society (how to flip and spin bottles in the air…)
When I got back to my room at the end of it all, I realised I had a bag full of things I would never use. I picked them up but didn’t actually think about how useful they would be in the long run. Sure, it’s worth trying something new like ultimate frisbee…but it all comes down asking the key questions about what you can use during your time at uni.
But what if you had everything you needed before you started?
The Student Linkup Box is a pack you can get before you head to university. It means you can ask the key questions about who you want to be, where you want to go and how you can stand for Jesus.
Student Linkup Sessions - the handbook to go alongside the videos, which includes everything you need to prepare for university
- Studentscape - Navigating the student landscape with some help from key figures and tools from the bible
- The Student Alphabet - an A to Z of everything to do with student life
- Fuse Magazine - full of wisdom and insights from the Fusion team
- Pen - for notes, doodles and ideas!
What will stay a key part of your time at university? Whether it’s a sports team or a social justice group, there’s always something that might stick with you. However, a church family and your faith will stay with you for university and beyond. So hear God’s call to establish yourself as his follower before you even start, and head to uni with something that won’t go in the bin after the first term: a lifeline for challenges and a joy that won’t give up.
