University of Galway Students’ Union has today launched its Refreshers Fair which will take place on campus next Tuesday, 13 September from 11am to 4pm.
The event is set to welcome students back to campus with a range of fun activities, freebies and prizes.
There will be food stalls from the Galway Market traders as well as a vintage clothing pop up shop, and the SU will also be distributing their ‘Rudaí Áille’ reusable tote bags full of freebies and information for students.
There will be inflatable games and lots of offers, prizes and surprises from student friendly businesses from Galway and beyond.
They will also be hosting the ever popular SU Outdoor Cinema on Monday 12 September.
Students’ Union President Sai Gujulla said: “We wanted to give returning University of Galway students a big welcome back to campus with a Refreshers Fair to make up for the two years of Freshers’ Fairs lost to Covid.
“We also have lots of events planned for our new First Year students later this month.”
Students’ Union Vice President/Welfare and Equality Officer Imogen O’Flaherty Falconer said that the event is a great chance for our students to meet each other in person, make friends, have some fun and get to know campus again.
“We are again focussing on sustainability with our Rudaí Áille reusable tote bags and the vintage clothing pop up shop.”
