What is Freshers Fair?

The SUBU Freshers Fair is a HUGE exhibition that is free to attend for ALL BU students. This is your chance to talk to 100's of SUBU Clubs and Societies, groups and find out about numerous volunteering and fundraising opportunities that are available to you to take part in alongside your studies. This is a great way to get more out of your time at BU!

There will also be a wide range of over 90 local and national businesses, fused together with live entertainment, sports demos, music, food and drink! There are absolutely loads of freebies and discounts that you can collect, so make sure you don't miss out!
