Marc stands-up to support Refreshers
Forth Valley Student Association helped to keep the spirits up by organising some great information and entertainment based events in their online Refreshers Fair from Monday 1 to Friday 5 February.
Some of the events which students took advantage of included: Keeping Yourself Safe organised by Police Scotland; Energy & money saving advice from Citizens Advice Bureau; Registering to Vote from the Electoral Commission; Clubs and Societies at FVC from the FVSA Activities and Volunteer Coordinator (Elena Semple); Learning Support Information from FVC Equalities and Inclusion team; Box of Knowledge Library information from the FVC LRC team and Volunteering in Falkirk from CVS Falkirk.
Comedian Marc Jennings also made a popular appearance to become the FVSA’s first ever live performance gig.
Andrew Smirthwaite, FVSA Student President, said: “This year we didn’t have a theme, as they are hard to implement in an online setting. But personally, I think it went really well and from what I have heard I think it was better than our Virtual Freshers event back in September.
“We also held our first ever free live performance by Marc Jennings who had us all laughing. This was also the best attended event with more than 30 students and staff tuning in and sharing it with their housemates and family.
“We wanted the students to have a bit of fun in these darker times. Live performances are something I hope will continue in the coming years.”
