[H]undreds of new and returning students from Furness College’s campuses at Channelside and Rating Lane came together for the college’s annual Freshers’ Fair.

Exhibitors including Oxfam, Inspira, the Royal Air Force, the National Trust, CandoFM and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award gathered at Channelside’s Sports Hall to talk to students about the services offered by local organisations to help them develop personally and professionally.

Representatives from the college’s gym, Student Services team and Students’ Union were also on hand to introduce students to the range of ways they can make the most of their time at Furness College.

Organised by the Student Services team, the Freshers’ Fair was also a chance for students based at the Rating Lane campus to find out more about the facilities on offer to them at Channelside.

Sarah Carter, Student Services Manager, said: “We were pleased to welcome our students and a wide variety of exhibitors to Channelside to showcase the opportunities available to students at both campuses.

“Our Freshers’ Fair is a great way for students to find out more about part-time work, volunteering and other activities to support their personal development.

“It’s also an opportunity for them to get more information about the services on offer to support their health and wellbeing.”
